The Civic Club de Pont Breaux is asking for donations of toys and clothing for those in need this holiday season.

Ricky Calais the Mayor of Breaux Bridge says the organization is working to gather items for those who could use assistance at this time of year.

Some of the items that are being asked for are toys, clothing, coats, and gift cards. Calais says that they are also helping people with food through the local food pantry.

"It doesn't take much," Calais said. "The good that you feel for doing that far outweighs what you might have put out by way of money."

Calais says that the group has talked of doing these types of event earlier in the year to help more individuals.

Items can be dropped off at Breaux Bridge Tourism Center from 8:00 a.m. To 4:00 p.m. The building is located at 314 East Bridge Street. You can also call 337-332-8500.
