30th Holiday Collection Drive to help local homeless

Local News

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The 30th annual Holiday Collection Drive is underway for St. Vicent de Paul Homeless Shelter. The public can drop off toiletries since collection bins are placed at all Alberston’s grocery stores, Baton Rouge Clinic locations and Louisiana Healthcare Connections.

Organizers said they look forward to giving back to the homeless population every year because they witness so many families living in cars and barely making ends meet.

The items collected are critical in helping those who have nowhere else to turn for assistance.
