Our very own Peyton Hamilton was featured on KTBS Channel 3 news for organizing a blanket drive for Homeless Shreveport Residents.


Peyton is collecting donations through Dec. 9. We want to help Peyton with her cause! If you'd like to participate, next Monday through Wednesday, you can send BLANKETS OR ADULT SIZED COATS/JACKETS (New or excellent condition) to school with your child to school if you would like to participate.

You can also bring blankets and jackets to Strawn's Eat Shop on Kings Highway, and ask for Karen. Donations are also being accepted at Casa Jimador on Line Avenue, if you ask for Tiffanie.

Right now, they plan to give out the blankets, sweatshirts and hoodies personally in downtown Shreveport in early December.

We are so proud of Peyton!!
