Love of People’s 7th Annual Community Christmas Gumbo fundraiser, and event, has a goal of distributing more than 500 bowls of gumbo, as well as toys, directly to people in St. Landry and Lafayette parishes, while remaining socially distant. This year has proven to be extremely difficult, and now more than ever our community needs our help. This drive was originally developed to create an opportunity for our community to come together, as well as engage in an environment of love, joy and fellowship. Each year, attendees receive a bowl of gumbo, free photos with Santa and a Christmas gift. Funds raised will be utilized to pay for food, supplies, gifts and special purchases for elderly residents in low income housing and nursing homes. Donations can be made on the Facebook fundraiser at Facebook.com/LoveofPeople, at LoveOfPeople.org, or by dropping off donated gifts at our partner locations. Donated toys and coats, for all ages, can be dropped off at our following community partner locations:
