Little Ladies Society delivers gifts to dozens of families in need across Acadiana

Posted: Updated:

A couple of weeks ago we told you about the little ladies society and how they were raising money to buy Christmas presents for people who are less fortunate in the community.

Today they were able to deliver those gifts.

They were able to raise more than $1,500 to deliver presents to dozens of families.

Today there was no shortage of laughs or tears.

"So we're going to be going to the next house and we're going to make some more people happy," said one of the members of the Little Ladies Society, Jorrie Vitar, while on the way to their 14th house of the week.

From Delcambre to Abbeville, the group of eight-year-old girls went all over Acadiana spreading Christmas Cheer

"We're really happy to be doing this," said Nola Simon, one of the little ladies.

"I think they feel very happy because if we didn't do it they wouldn't have a Christmas," said Paityn Viator, another little lady.

With each home delivery, came a handful of thank you's.

"Y'all are so sweet! We're so thankful," said Constance Dees, a mother who received gifts from the girls.

For Dees and her daughter, the Little Ladies Society is more like their little angels.

"I just got here from Alabama, I don't have a job yet. We were abandoned and had to sleep in our car. It means a lot because she wouldn't have anything," said Dees.

And although gifts aren't everything, it certainly put a smile on their faces.

"She's so happy, she wants to open everything. She's so excited but I'm going to make her wait until Christmas day to open for something," Dees said of her daughter through tears.

The little ladies got to see how their motto, "It's better to give than to receive," works first hand

"We learned what it really means because I mean it's true, that's why we help," said Bella Olivier.

And they also had some fun along the way, dancing and goofing around between deliveries.

"Yeah we're going to the next house so we're going to have some fun, giving out all the presents," said Olivier.

"We're going to Abbeville and the people's last name that we're going to is Meaux," said Carley Evans.

"So, let's go!" said Vitar, finishing her friend's sentence.

Once inside the next home, they immediately got to their favorite part, passing out the gifts and seeing the kids smile.

"It means a lot, I mean I do this by myself. It's a struggle," said Tonia Meaux, a mother of four. "I just want to tell them 'thank you' for everything they've done for me and my kids."

Meaux's kids were so grateful for their gifts, they couldn't choose one as their favorite.

"It means a lot. I feel great when I see people smiling because I love knowing that I can help people," said Vitar.
