Help the Volunteer Center Southwest Louisiana and PAPA NOEL to put smiles on the faces of children in our five-parish area. With you continued support; we will be able to furnish PAPA NOEL gift bags during the Christmas season in Allen, Beauregard Calcasieu, Cameron, and Jeff Davis Parishes.

Due to the growing request for gift bags, the Volunteer Center Board has committed itself to providing more gift bags. The Volunteer Center's Mission Statement is to "Mobilize People and Resources to Deliver Creative Solutions to Community Problems." We cannot reach our goals or even exist without our friends. The Volunteer Center SWLA through the lovable PAPA NOEL will...

  • Give hundreds of area children a wonderful holiday gift bag filled with toys that inspire curiosity
  • Spread the message of volunteerism and the "joy of giving back" to area youth
  • Distribute gift bags to randomly selected schools and child care faculties in the 5-parish area
  • Emphasize the need for volunteers in the home, city, state and nation

Please help us with this worthwhile cause! Make this a joyous holiday for hundreds of our community's children and help launch a volunteer initiative targeted to respond to the needs of children. We are asking you to reach deep into your hearts and your pocketbooks and give. Each gift bag is only $25, which is tax deductible. What a small price to pay to put a big smile on the faces of children. 

The hundreds of children you help with the Volunteer Center want to thank you for your friendship and your generous support. Please don't delay, PAPA'S elves must start working today for our children's holiday and we can't do it without you!

Gratefully yours in the spirit of volunteerism,

Board of Directors Volunteer Center SWLA, Inc.
