SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - What started as a local initiative has now made a difference in all 64 parishes of Louisiana!

Geaux Bags is an organization that helps thousands of children every year during the emergency transition into the protective custody of foster care.

“Every child that gets rescued gets a Geaux Bag with everything that they need for that first 24 hours to help them in that transition,” said Executive Director K.C. Kilpatrick.
