Project Mission Tree

Update: Thank you for everyone who participated in our Project Mission Tree. Thanks to you, men, women and children residing at the Mission got to experience the joy and love that comes with Christmas. Thanks to you, our guests felt loved and knew that they were not forgotten this Christmas season. Thanks to you, guests who came in with hope and without a family experienced both. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Each year, we need volunteers to help provide Christmas gifts to men, women, and children in the Mission’s Life Recovery Program. Through Project Mission Tree, guests can request up to 2 gifts they would like, each valued at $30 or less.

This is a great opportunity for businesses, churches and groups. Tags are available for pick up starting in Wednesday, November 1st. Tags can be picked off a Christmas tree in our McNeil lobby (901 McNeil St., Monday through Friday 8:30 to 4:30) or we can email them to you.

Presents should be gift-wrapped and returned to the Mission by Thursday, November 30th, with the tag secured to it. For more information, contact Sarah Ardis at 318.227.2868, ext. 103 or email

“This is an opportunity to give back to the community and know your gift will impact your neighbor’s life,” said Sarah Ardis, Director of Development and Community Relations.

Gifts will be distributed to guests at the annual Christmas Party catered by our friends at El Dorado Resort Shreveport in early December.
