Annual Bead Drive

Annual bead drive

The Arc of Acadiana hosts an annual bead drive to collect used Mardi Gras beads to re-stock our inventory of beads, which are then sold at our 7 gift and resale stores around Louisiana for tossing off floats.

Collected beads are detangled, sorted, repackaged and sold at very affordable prices, providing employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities in the process. We are looking to bring this event to all of the markets we serve.

If you will be throwing beads from a float, please consider visiting one of our Resale Stores for the Mardi Gras holiday to purchase your beads. Buy all the beads you need at a great price, while making a positive impact on someone’s life!
