Catching Mardi Gras beads is fun for people of all ages, but when you take home enough to throw your own parade, the fun fades pretty quickly. Use your unwanted beads to make a difference in Acadiana instead of tossing them in the attic by donating them to LARC.

LARC's Beads N More program raises money to help people in our community with developmental disabilities receive vocational training. LARC repackages and sells donated beads, with all profits going toward the program.

Beads can be donated at LARC in New Iberia or any Goodwill location in Acadiana. Click here to read more about the program.
