SOS!!! We need your help with Project Mission Tree

You can make Christmas special for our guests who are starting their journey in our Life Recovery Program. Through Project Mission Tree, guests can request up to 3 gifts they would like, each valued at $30 or less. This is a great opportunity for businesses, churches and groups.

Tags can be picked off a Christmas tree in our McNeil lobby (901 McNeil St., Monday-Friday 8:30 to 4:30) or tags can email to you. Presents need to be gift-wrapped and returned to the Mission by Tuesday, December 6th at 4:30 p.m., with the tag secured to it. For more information or to secure your tag, contact Sonnie Nash at 318.227.2868 ext. 104 or
