Community Project:

Each year LCA members attempt to leave our footprint in the conference city by selecting a Community Project.  In past years we have donated to the Food Bank, Red Cross, Teddy Bears for the Military as well as the State Police.  For the 2016 conference the LCA Executive Board has selected the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Council of Baton Rouge.

 

St. Vincent de Paul has been actively striving to understand and fulfill the needs of the poor within Baton Rouge and the surrounding community since 1865.

We are here to aid the most vulnerable members of our community. Through our various programs, we reach out to those in need. We provide hot meals to those who would otherwise go hungry, warm beds to those who would have no place to sleep, medications to those who could not afford them on their own, and the mandatory uniforms that children need to attend school. By fulfilling these basic needs we do more than address the needs of the moment; we believe that we are giving a hand up, and not a hand out. At every opportunity, we move to better the lives of those we help and move them towards self-sufficiency and a better quality of life.

You will be given the opportunity to make a monetary donation to the LCA Community Project when you register for the conference. 

Southern University students have agreed to be involved in this project.  There will be a table at conference for participants to bring items that the Society of St. Vincent de Paul have indicted that is needed.  Conference Participants are  encouraged to bring these items to the conference:

Twin size Blankets or sheets

Pillows

Wash cloths

Bath towels

Baby cloths

Bibs

Diapers

Toilet paper

Cleaning supplies
