Thanks to our generous community, we are proud to celebrate 30 years of Caring Gifts!

 

We want to continue changing the lives of thousands who find their way to us through Caring Gifts. Donate to Volunteers of America using the online form below. In return, we will send a beautiful, hand-wrapped angel ornament to everyone on your holiday shopping list. Inside the gift, we also place a card that tells the recipient how the donation someone made in their name will change the lives of those we serve.

 

By sending a Caring Gifts angel, you will honor those who receive the angel and provide countless opportunities to children and families, veterans, people with disabilities and seniors.

 

Continue the tradition or start a new one today! 

 

  * December 2nd is the first day of mailing 2019 Caring Gifts angels.

Please specify the type and dollar amount of "Caring Gifts" you would like to give this holiday season through Volunteers of America North Louisiana.
  • Many people with disabilities and seniors can live in their own home with just a few hours of help each day. Your gift of $100 pays for much needed quality, personal care.
  • High school students in our Teen Club program are preparing for their future and for some, it is a dream to attend college. Your gift of $50 will buy ACT preparation materials, so they can reach their full potential.

  • Having the appropriate clothes is often the first step to employment. Your gift of $75 will help buy uniforms, work boots and other necessities to help those in need find jobs and independence.
  • Children who are depressed or stressed because of situations at home struggle to focus in school. Your gift of $250 will pay for a licensed therapist to offer professional counseling to youth in crisis.
