Lakeview Regional Holiday Gift & Toy Drive supporting St. Tammany Project Christmas Lakeview Regional Medical Center, a campus of Tulane Medical Center, will be collecting new, unwrapped gifts and toys to be donated to St. Tammany Project Christmas. There are many children, including teens, in St. Tammany Parish who cannot share in the excitement of Christmas morning and family Christmas dinner. St. Tammany Project Christmas provides gifts for needy children and food for a family Christmas dinner. These items are given to the parents the week before Christmas, so they can surprise their children with gifts on Christmas morning.
Older children, ages 13 – 17, are often overlooked during toy drives. St. Tammany Project Christmas recommends the following list of affordable gifts for teens:
- Sports equipment: basketballs, soccer balls, baseballs and gloves, footballs, tennis rackets, tennis balls Art supplies: colored pencils, paint, brushes, sketch pads
- Games: board games, card games
