ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - Through a worldwide health pandemic, two major hurricanes, and a historic winter storm, our local non-profits here in Central Louisiana have never stopped serving those who need help. After all the challenges our local non-profits have faced, including the cancellations of many of their fundraising events, now more than ever they could really use the community’s help.

If you are interested in being of service by volunteering your time or donating, we’ve put together a list of non-profits across Cenla that give back to our community every day.

We would like to encourage everyone to be of service, because making our world a better place to live starts at home. If you are a local non-profit that would like specific donations listed or your organization would like to be added please email us at news@kalb.com
