Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - If people are in need of help, Catholic Charities is ready to take action.

Through many acts of service they provide solutions for anyone struggling financially, rebuilding a new life, and needing help with disaster recovery.

On Wednesday, Sept. 7, Catholic Charity hosted a give away through many donations for people to walk through and shop for free, looking for the things that they need the most.

The giveaway included things such as hats, gloves, decorations, jewelry, shoes, and other miscellaneous items that may be needed.

“I wait until I get a consumption of items to give away, it’s pretty much like a garage sale. Just all types of miscellaneous items that people do not have in their homes and they just don’t have the funds to go out and get them,” said disaster task manager Cynthia Julian.

Those who already clients with the organization will be sent alerts and notified when events are occurring through “Flock Notes”.

Any one who would like to sign up for Flock Notes or seeking to become a potential new client, can stop by their office and fill out an application or apply online HERE.

  • Emergency rental assistance
