A group of ladies delivering their church’s contributions to Angel Tree.
It’s hard to believe it’s that time again, but we are so excited to be preparing for yet another year of showing the youth in our care how much they are loved through all of our upcoming Christmas activities! One of the many things youth on our Ruston campus look forward to each year is the night we celebrate with a special Chapel Service followed by Angel Tree Parties.

Please consider participating in collecting gifts for our youth. This year, we will provide gifts for residents of our 3 Children’s Homes, as well as gifts for those in our Methodist Foster Care homes. Altogether, we will provide gifts for more than 175 kids!

Wish List items or other items collected may be dropped off at our Ruston campus M-F between the hours of 8am-5pm. Please call our Public Relations staff to let us know you will be bringing gifts. We can be reached at 318-255-5575. We appreciate your help this Christmas season!

Another option is to order gifts online from Walmart or Amazon and have them delivered straight to us. When choosing this option, please note our physical address is:
