LARC is continuing its operation bead collection for this Mardi Gras Season.
People in Acadiana are now able to donate any beads or Mardi Gras items they've collected to any Goodwill in Acadiana. St. Thomas More High School, live Oak Elementary, Fatima Elementary, Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital, Raising Cane's and the Mall of Acadiana are other places you can drop your beads off.
The Mall of Acadiana is offering a chance to win a $25.00 Mall Gift Certificate for donors who drop off beads at the customer service desk.
And at the Raising Cane's on Kaliste Saloom in the Target Shopping Center, donors will have a chance to win prize packs. The beads will be delivered back to LARC where they will be sorted out and repackaged for re-sale.
