Don't keep those beads underfoot in your garage all year.

LARC is once again collecting unwanted Mardi Gras beads for its work with individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Donated beads are cleaned and prepped for the next Mardi Gras and other special occasions by individuals employed by LARC. Other throws are also accepted for sale in LARC's Beads - N - More Store.

Drop off beads at the Beads-N-More Store at Acadian Village or at any Goodwill location in Acadiana. The four main branches of the Lafayette Public Library and all Raisin Cane’s locations have bead donation bins.

Visit LARC for more information.
