Our 10th Annual Campaign:

Every year in March, CCOA and our Meals On Wheels program bring together neighbors, community & business leaders, political & church leaders along with our print and broadcast media in an event designed to RAISE AWARENESS AND INSPIRE RESULTS!   

TOO MANY people in Caddo Parish must CHOOSE between medicine and food!
TOO MANY of our neighbors over 60 suffer in silence with the indignity of hunger!
TOO MANY people go into long-term care facilities simply because they can no longer cook for themselves!
TOO MANY injuries or illnesses go undetected for lack of a knock on the door of our elderly neighbors!

We gather FRI, MAR 7th @11am @Festival Plaza to make Caddo Parish aware how simple the solution is: GET INVOLVED!

  But wait!  THERE'S MORE!

Celebrity Guest Appearance by:  Mr. Willie Jones!

Willie Jones (born Sep 23, 1994) is a country singer from Shreveport, LA. He surprised the judges when he sang "Your Man" from Josh Turner during his audition in Greensboro, North Carolina. He sang Tony Rich's "Nobody Knows" for his mentor Demi Lovato and guest mentor Nick Jonas during the judge's homes round. Lovato selected Jones to participate in the live shows. Jones performed "Here for the Party" during the first live show on October 31, 2012
