Down here in the South, we love the holidays. There’s an extra sense of cheer that goes so well with the already wonderfully present Southern hospitality.
Not to mention, New Orleans is GORGEOUS this time of year. At night, a new mist blankets the city, lending a special glow to the antique streetlights and entry way lanterns throughout the French Quarter.
This year, the team at Cajun Encounters decided to start the holidays early. Led by our General Manager, Melissa Meilleur, we embarked on a toy drive before it was even time to chow down for Thanksgiving.
Thanks to her direction, we were able to come together to donate two full loads of toys to the Good Samaritan Ministry. These toys will go towards helping children throughout Slidell, Louisiana wake up to something under the tree this year.
Many, many thanks to Melissa and the rest of the team for all of their hard work and commitment to this project. We are proud to have such a outstanding team and to see everyone come together for such a heartwarming cause. Here’s to setting even higher goals for 2014!!
Below is a picture of just one of the loads of toys.
