Caroling on the Teche in Downtown New Iberia

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday night in New Iberia, the community came together to hear Christmas carols and get into the holiday spirit. 

A group by the name of A New Chapter is asked everyone to come out to hear Christmas carols and participate in a toy drive for Caroling On The Teche. 

Everyone who attended the  event was asked to bring one unwrapped toy to help families in need this holiday season. 

One organizer, Wilfred Jones, said the event was to help those in need during the holiday season. 

"We have to understand that not everyone is as fortunate like most of us, there are some families that are struggling.  We know that this is a time of giving, a season of giving, because God gave his life for us," Jones said. 

Choirs and soloists also  attended the event, singing selections of their favorite Christmas songs 

Several community members were happy for an event that brought unity in a time of so much crime in New Iberia.

"We have so much crime here in New Iberia, and we are just trying to come together in unity. All groups of faith, and all faith communities so that we can pray to fight the crime," Touzin said.
