LARC has officially kicked off Operation Bead Collection. All Mardi Gras beads and trinkets can be donated to any Goodwill of Acadiana Store. Beads will then be delivered to LARC where individuals with developmental disabilities will sort and repackage beads and items for resale back to public. As usual, area schools are getting in the bead collection spirit. STM, Live Oak Elementary and Fatima will also be holding bead drives. Employees with Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital are encouraged to donate beads to their employer. Mall of Acadiana is also collecting beads at the Customer Service Desk. All those who donate beads will be entered into a chance to win a $25.00 Mall gift certificate. Cane's in the Target shopping center will also be collecting. Donors can enter for a chance to win a Cane's Meal.
LARC supports persons with developmental disabilities in reaching their goals of self-sufficiency, quality of life and self-worth. For more information on LARC services, please visit www.lafayettelarc.org or find us on Facebook!
