Lions Club member Lisso Simmons was presented with a Lifetime Membership Certificate by past president Brandon McKee at the club’s meeting Monday, July 25.

After lunch, Stacey LaCour, founder of Little Angels of God, spoke to the group. Stacey started the charity in 2010 after meeting a foster child and hearing her story.

“God told me this is what I had to do,” she said.

Working with CASA, the group puts together gift boxes for Christmas and baskets for Easter for children in the foster care system. After CASA’s needs are met, the group gives the boxes and baskets to children in the community who live in a displaced home or others in need. The boxes are full of fun and necessary items including toiletries, small toys, jewelry, books, art supplies, accessories, individually wrapped candy and more. Infant boxes include bibs, pacifiers and more. All donations need to be in by Dec. 16. The Christmas boxes will be wrapped Dec. 17 and help is appreciated.

Donation items can be dropped off at Evolutions Hair Salon, 7071 Hwy. 6 West. For more information call 318-472-6430. Board members will pick up donations if necessary. Homemade items are accepted. Diaper and clothing donations will be given to Project Celebration in Many, which services nine parishes.
