Spirit of Giving
Watch the Spirit of Giving message from our President/CEO Jim Leblanc and Tod Smith, WWL-TV General manger as they share how your donation will help children and youth in need throughout the year. We greatly appreciate WWL-TV returning as our Spirit of Giving sponsor again this year and sharing our commitment to youth.
For 24 years, adoptive families and community leaders have been gathering to help create forever families. As the sole fundraiser for the Adoption and Maternity Program, 100% of all revenue from the tournament ensures that we can continue to counsel birth parents and adoptive parents, provide support groups and place children in loving homes.
Donate Your Vehicle
Donating your car helps us do so much. Your donation funds charitable programs that help children seeking adoptive parents, mentoring and enrichment programs for at-risk youth and support for persons with disabilities. Donating your car helps us serve veterans who are homeless and provides lasting solutions for homeless persons in recovery from substance abuse.
A Story of Gratitude
Volunteers of America Greater New Orleans’s Katrina story, told by President and CEO Jim LeBlanc. His first-person account shows how, thanks to many dedicated staff and new friends, we safely evacuated all persons with disabilities in our care and helped others we serve to safety. Our story is one of survival and gratitude, that shows how deeply God blessed us during the catastrophe by placing friends and supporters in our path to light the way.
