Junior League helps out

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The local foster care visitation center received improvements.

Members of the Junior League of Alexandria volunteered their time to spruce it up.

Volunteers set up toys, books, and furniture.

The goal is to help improve the quality of time children and family members spend together at the visitation center.

"The kids get to come here and visit with their parents and this provides them with things to do with their families that are fun and they can learn while they are here. Instead of just sitting here and visiting, parents can interact with their children," said Amy Merrell of the Junior League.

The Junior League chose foster care as their focus area for this year. This is one of many child care related projects that they will do.
