Shoeboxes For Seniors

The Bayou Church is working together with The Blake and Townsquare Media to show love to under-resourced senior citizens in Acadiana. Many of our seniors have no family to care for them and will not receive any gifts to celebrate Christmas. Together, we can make a difference by packing shoeboxes (plastic containers recommended) with NEW, unopened gifts such as hygiene items, games, puzzles, socks, and more that will be delivered to nursing homes, homebound elderly citizens, and other seniors in need.


Who: Anyone can participate
What: Gather suggested items in unwrapped plastic box to give to seniors in need
When: Drop off at The Bayou Church December 3-10

Suggested Items:

  • Personal hygiene items (toothpaste, tooth brush, comb/brush, etc.)
  • Lotions for sensitive skin
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Large print puzzles and playing cards
  • Cozy nonskid socks
  • Pill box
  • Nonperishable snacks
  • Anything else that might make a senior smile
