Lafayette Church Holding ‘CHRISTmas LOVE’ Donation Drive to Help Hurricane Victims
The good folks at Covenant United Methodist Church are at it again -- helping more residents devastated by Hurricanes Laura and Delta.
The church will be looking to send some "CHRISTmas LOVE" to our neighbors in southwest Louisiana that are still reeling from multiple storms.
Many families are still living in badly damaged homes that remain unrepaired due to a shortage of money or contractors. Some families are even living in tents and cars. Their needs are still there and that's where you can help out.
On Saturday, November 21st and again on Saturday, November 28th from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm you can drop off items listed below at Covenant United Methodist Church located at 300 E. Martial Avenue in Lafayette.
