Discover Fun Ways to Impact a Child’s Life
Roy’s Kids hosts multiple events in Shreveport, LA, such as a holiday toy drive and school supply collection. Keep reading to learn about our other events.
We’ve been hosting this event since 2016. Our 5K is a great way to tell multiple people about Roy’s Kids and show them how they can impact a child’s life. Our next race will be on October 29, 2022. Stay tuned for more information and join for some exercise and fun.
Back-to-School Supply Collection
We run our school supply collection year-round in Shreveport, Louisiana. In 2021, we partnered with Robert Handy of Community Renewal and delivered backpacks filled with school supplies to the Allendale community. Bossier High and Southwood teachers distributed backpacks and many came to Roy’s Kids on Creswell. Overall, more than 3000 children were helped as they began their school year.
Holiday Toy Drive
Modeled after Toys for Tots, we host our toy drive so underprivileged kids can look forward to Christmas. Roy’s Kids collects toys all year long to give to children in the community. We accept applications for wish lists on-line from families from October 1st through October 31st.
Bike, Bikes and More Bikes
Throughout the year, we collect bikes for children without. We give them away at Christmas and when anyone let’s us know they need one. We’ve been known to find bikes for people who are walking to work. Our hope is that if we can help them help themselves that’s a great thing.
Each year, we invite our supporters to a night of fun, food and friendly competition to raise funds for Roy’s Kids. There is no way I can thank everyone involved because there are too many. This is our biggest fund raiser and without it we would not be able to do near as much as we do.

Give For Good is a 24-hour online giving challenge that brings North Louisiana together to benefit our local nonprofits. Whether you give a little or a lot, be a part of our area’s largest day of giving. Save the date for May 3, 2022!
