SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Geaux 4 Kids is stepping up to help teens have a merry Christmas this season with their Just Be-Clause project.
Geaux 4 Kids started Just Be-Clause to provide Christmas presents for teens of age 13 to 18 who have been identified by school resource officers as in-crisis. They believe these children also need to experience the holiday season since most agencies stop serving children who are 13 or above.
Items needed for donation include comfort items and gift cards. Geaux 4 Kids decided on gifts cards so teens can pick something out for themselves and have options.
“So that there are teens that can get what they are needing. Kinda the gig’s up,” K.C. Kilpatrick said. “They kinda know what they want for Christmas at that age. And we just believe that they deserve some joy and happiness as well.”
