Christmas in Southwest LouisianaPosted: 11/18/2020
The children’s, youth and missions ministries of First Presbyterian Church are teaming up to bring joy to the children in southwest Louisiana and especially in Iowa, Louisiana. This area of our state is full of children and teens who have lost personal items, books and toys (indoor and outdoor) from two devastating hurricanes this fall.
These children are hoping Santa will bring some new replacements! However, Santa is stretched extremely thin with deductibles, repair costs for their homes, replacement costs, reduced hours of work and the delivery trucks are running slow this year.
We need gifts for kids! New toys, puzzles, games, sports balls, jump ropes, etc., as well as items for teens (girls: purses, jewelry, etc., and guys: sports balls, electronics, teen stuff). Packages of new t-shirts, socks, pajamas, sweaters, hair bows will also be helpful for all ages. We deeply appreciate your help in blessing others who have been devastated.
Please deliver gifts wrapped with a tag indicating the appropriate age and sex of the child. Please drop your gifts off no later than Sunday, December 20 to the gym where the hurricane tables are located. Please contact Whitney Alexander if you have any questions (225.810.2607).
