Sponsor a family for Christmas

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Looking to spread a little extra joy this holiday season? Catholic Charities is looking for helpers to sponsor families for Christmas.

Catholic Charities is also hosting a “Christmas Lights” program to help pay for the utility bills of these families during the winter months.
