The Food Bank is in need of volunteers to help sort items and prepare boxes for our Senior Program. Last year the Food Bank had over 800 volunteers that gave over 13,500 volunteer hours to help provide food to those in need.
Disasters are a frequent occurrence in Louisiana -- hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires being the most common. And when they occur, the American Red Cross relies on volunteers to offer help and hope to people who have lost everything.
I got an email today from my friend Glynna over at the Shreveport American Cancer Society office.
They have a great program that helps with transportation of qualifying patients to and from their cancer treatments.
But they ran into an issue Monday morning... They had patients needing to get to their treatments... But no volunteers to drive!
Bring a team -- or just bring yourself.
You can help make a difference in the look of downtown Shreveport this weekend. The Texas Avenue Community Asociation, along with the Aseana Foundation, SRAC, SPAR and the Downtown Delelopment Authority are teaming up to host the "Great American Clean-Up Day," this year focusing on downtown's Shreveport Common.
