Roy’s Kids is a local charity based in Shreveport, Louisiana. We serve the Shreveport-Bossier City area, and our workers serve on a volunteer basis. All our volunteers go through a strict qualification process before we accept them into our program.
We have donors who adopt families and children, as well as those who help with our Christmas donations in Shreveport, Louisiana. Our volunteers do the Christmas shopping, gift wrapping and delivery in time for our kids to enjoy the wonderful Christmas they wouldn’t otherwise have.

Learn about the heart behind our organization
Owner Michael Sean Powell is the youngest son of a single mother who struggled to raise two sons on her own. He watched his mother work double shifts and multiple jobs to provide for her family, but money was always scarce. Christmas was a bleak time with few gifts and an absent mother who would keep working during the holiday to support her family. Christmas is always a less joyous time for kids like Mike and his brother Roy, who died several years ago.
In his brother’s memory, Mike created Roy’s Kids in 2010 to help single parents with limited income. Our goal is to support kids in the Shreveport, LA community as much as possible so they can have a happy childhood. We don’t want children to feel left out due to financial difficulties.
Roy’s Kids also collaborates with other charities throughout the year on various events to help underprivileged children. We’ll do whatever it takes to help as many children as possible have the fun childhood they deserve.
