Lafayette, LA - The Outreach Center's annual Hunters for the Hungry food drive will be held on Sunday, October 11th from 10AM to 3PM. Local sportsmen and their families are encouraged to "clean out your freezers" and donate frozen processed game and fish from the 2008 season. Collection sites will be set up throughout Lafayette and other area communities. See complete list of sites below or visit www.acadianaoutreach.org.
All donations are tax deductible and will be used to feed the needy through the Outreach Center's shelters and programs, just one of the many ways the Center fulfills its mission of "helping to give people back their God-given dignity by transforming lives to reach their highest potential."
We are also in need of volunteers the day of the event to help greet the donors, unload donations, record them and distribute receipts. If you are interested in donating your time, please contact Amanda Toups at (337) 237-7618 x203 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last year's drive was a huge success with sites in Lafayette, Carencro, Crowley, and Eunice collecting over 6,000 lbs. of food which provided meals to the impoverished and homeless in the greater Lafayette community.
2009 Collection Sites:
• LAFAYETTE - Cajun Field
• CARENCRO - Carencro Fire Station
• CROWLEY - Salvadore's Jewelry & Gifts
• EUNICE - Eunice Fire Department
• BREAUX BRIDGE - Henderson Nina Fire Station
