Our mission is to keep alive the memory of our son, Lane Michael Leger and carryout the legacy of love that he left behind. By helping someone in need while celebrating the birth of Christ, we hope to spark a chain reaction of love, compassion and generosity. We may not change the world but maybe we can change one little corner of it…one Christmas at a time.
Lane’s Promise, Inc. was formed in October 2005 in memory of Lane Michael Leger. It is a service organization run out the home of Lane’s parents, Jacob and Kelly. We are completely run by volunteers and we rely solely on donations for our funding.
Every Christmas we adopt needy families in our community and give them everything from toys to toiletries and everything in between. Our church, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Mire, LA under the leadership of Father Mike Arnaud hosts a toy drive for us throughout the Advent season. Because the toy drive is always so successful we are able to use our funds to purchase household items, winter clothes, shoes, pajamas, gas cards, grocery gift cards etc. for our adoptive families. Our volunteers shop, package, assemble, wrap and deliver everything to our families a few days before Christmas. We believe that all children, despite their circumstances, deserve a chance to believe in the magic of Christmas.
