The 10th annual Cinderella's Closet, sponsored by Thibodaux Service League, Thibodaux High School and JOTS Birthdays is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 16th from 11-4 pm at Thibodaux High School.
Last year, more than 50 deserving girls received dresses, shoes and accessories for the prom or JROTC Ball. One sweet girl told a volunteer that she did not know how she was going to get a dress. THIS is why we do what we do! Thank you to all of our volunteers and donors for making this a success!
WAYS TO HELP
For the past TEN years, Colin and Alex LeBlanc of Lockport have dedicated their lemonade stand donations to help those less fortunate. All proceeds support foster children living at Cornerstone in Thibodaux, LA and MacDonell Children's Home in Houma, LA.
In May 2022, the LeBlanc brothers raised more than $1000 both online and in-person!
Even during the pandemic, these awesome brothers continued to raise donations virtually!
In August 2017, Colin and Alex were named Outstanding Youth Activist Award during the MacDonell Children's Home annual benefit.
THANK YOU, Alex and Colin, for helping our local foster children!! Thank you to their parents Jessica and Ben LeBlanc for raising such amazing kids!
God bless you!
