· Michelle Hammonds works with a project called Geaux Bags. These bags contain essentials for youth who are taken out of their homes and put into foster care. When the items are collected, teen members could pack the bags.

· Christi mentioned the Young Marines and will check with Walt on their needs.

· Salvation Army

· Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse in Bossier

· Erika – WERLA or Wildlife Education Rehabilitation of Louisiana, based in Shreveport, needs donations. (This is the group that was at Cypress.)
