Foster Children Christmas Party

The Bayou Church is honored to partner with the Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) to organize community donors from across Acadiana to create a special Christmas event for every foster child in Lafayette parish which is approximately 150 children (preschool through 18). This special party includes dinner, photo booth, a visit with Santa, North Pole Candy Shoppe, face painting and more. There is nothing quite like seeing those delighted faces as they experience this night of Christmas celebration.

Want to make a difference for a child in foster care this Christmas? Here's how you can help:

  • Donate to cover cost of gift cards, photo booth rental, train ride, food/drinks, etc. 
  • Donate individually-wrapped candy in boxes across our campus from November 18-Dec 2.
  • Volunteer to set up for the Christmas party on Friday, Dec 7.
  • Volunteer to serve at the Christmas party on Friday, Dec 7.
    (All volunteers must be 18 or older and approved by DCFS with a background check.)
