Last year’s tree shown brightly for more than 38 nights and brought much comfort and joy to our residents, families and the neighboring New Orleans community after a year of braving COVID-19. This year, with the emergence of the Delta variant and now, with the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, Poydras Home is committed more than ever to partner with our patrons to deliver this spectacular illuminating event. Together we can warm the hearts and lift the spirits of our residents and the larger community this holiday season!
We are grateful for your support of Poydras Home’s annual fundraiser and we hope you will consider a corporate or individual patron sponsorship. For more information contact Vice President of Philanthropy Charlotte Thomas at 504-897-0535 / email@example.com.

In 2020 Poydras Home kept our new holiday tradition alive by lighting up the night with our holiday tree on the corner of Magazine Street and Jefferson Avenue beginning December 3 for the holiday season to offer hope, comfort and joy. Though we could not gather on the scenic front lawn due to the pandemic, we lit our holiday tree and virtually shared the celebration.
Our peace and goodwill this holiday season commemorated the Poydras Home Healthcare Heroes of 2020 and the residents they served while also showing our gratitude to all Greater New Orleans Healthcare Heroes.
Poydras Home is so thankful for the support of our Tree Sponsor, Hancock Whitney!
