The Miles Perret Cancer Services Giving Tree Program is an annual holiday gift-giving initiative that offers help and comfort to families during the Christmas season.

The program is offered to pediatric clients or children and/or siblings of an active Miles Perret Cancer Services client who are 18 years old or younger and living at home. Each ornament on the Giving Tree has a child’s wish, age, and gender (all wishes or gifts are within a $35 limit). Generous businesses, groups, and individuals can participate by choosing ornaments, shopping for gifts, and returning unwrapped gifts to the Miles Perret office.

If you would like to join in spreading holiday cheer this Christmas, stop by their office, 2130 Kaliste Saloom Road, Ste 200 in Lafayette,  or call (337) 984-1920 to choose an ornament with a child’s Christmas wish. Select as many ornaments as you would like at the front desk. Return all unwrapped gifts and attached ornament no later than Friday, December 7.

Office hours are Monday thru Thursday: 8 am to5 pm, and Friday: 8 am to 4 pm.
