Mission: To provide christmas presents, clothes and meals for children of families in need.
Target demographics: Families that are down on their luck
Direct beneficiaries per year: We helped over 50 children in the New Orleans, Slidell and Mandeville area celebrate a special Christmas.
Geographic areas served: South Louisiana
Programs: We adopt families for Christmas. We ask local principals to recommend families to us where the parents are down on their luck for one reason or another but the parents are involved in their children's lives in a positive role. We surprise these children by giving them an amazing Christmas complete with toys and clothes. Sometimes we even get furniture for the families.
This program was life changing...I was living in a shelter and later on moved in with a relative... I had left another state to better myself but actually hit rock bottom. It was Holiday time and I use to cry myself to sleep because I didnt have anything for my 2 little girls. This organization stepped in and bought them Christmas gifts. It moved my heart it meant so much. They received over 10 gifts a piece. They offered a Christmas dinner also. The workers were so nice they heard my story and reached out to me. I think their names was Margaret and Judy!!! If i can donate a billion dollars I would!! I would bever forget the smiles on my children face!!!
