JA seeks help for children
This year is no exception and the Ruston’s Junior Auxiliary is doing its part to help local children in need through the Christmas Clearinghouse program. Children are recommended through Lincoln Parish schools and matched with families willing to “adopt” them by purchasing gifts for Christmas.
This year the situation is magnified due to the influx of families fleeing the devastation brought by hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Many of these families lost everything they owned in the floods that followed the Category storms. Most arrived in our area with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
