Here's a chance to help someone in your own backyard. A residential building on Herndon St. in Shreveport burned to the ground last week, leaving several people homeless. The residents got out with just the clothes on their back and nothing else. They are in need of clothing, furniture and household items. If you can help, please contact Jessica Labban (LAY-ben) @ (318) 459-0193 or e-mail her at jessicalabban85@gmail.com. Thank you.
