Holiday Assistance (Food & Gifts):

La Center Friends Next Door

La Center Friends Next Door is comprised of a local group of volunteers from La Center with a current goal of enhancing the Holiday Season for a number of La Center families while partnering with our community. There currently is a tremendous need within our community and limited resources to fill that need. If you know of a family in need and would like to nominate them please contact us via email, or if your family could use a little extra help this year – feel free to nominate yourself. Our focus will be on providing gifts for the children, food, toiletry and cleaning supplies for the whole family.
