Abraham’s Pack the Tent

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - You can help supply Abraham’s Tent with food for the coming year!

A Pack the Tent Food Drive will be held from from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15, at Abraham’s Tent - 2424 Fruge Street.

Abraham’s Tent serves hundreds of hot meals each and every day of the week to anyone in need.

It’s going to be cold, so you don’t even have to get out of the car - just pull up and we’ll unload the car for you.
