Paragon is accepting donations of coats and jackets of all sizes for children and adults. New or gently used coats may be dropped off at the Preferred Players Club, located near Roxy’s Diner.
“It’s our goal to provide warm coats to Cenla families in need during the holiday season,” said Paragon Acting General Manager Chris Barbry. “This is one of the many fundraisers where we have a great opportunity to give back and help our community.”
The coats will be distributed to needy families at the Avoyelles Council on Aging (ACOA) office located at 232 Preston Street, Marksville, LA. The ACOA will announce the date of distribution.
Paragon has collected more than 3,500 coats since it started participating in the drive over twelve years ago.
