Our Story

The Slidell Heritage Festival has 12 board members. Our board handles all aspects of the festival from vendors and entertainments to live music and the overall operations of the event.

This year’s chosen charities who will be benefitting from our Fundraising efforts:

Good Samaritans:

The Good Samaritan Ministry (Good Sam’s) is an all-volunteer organization that provides emergency financial aid to stop the downward spiral of crisis while networking to provide long-term assistance to struggling families and individuals in poverty.  In its 30th year, Good Sam’s offers solutions for any legitimate need by creating programs in-house, providing other agencies with the usage of our campus facilities, or referring residents to vetted programs that address their needs. In support of the community we, in turn, rely on the community as a vital source of both cash and service donations.

Hospice House:

The Hospice House is a privately owned home designed to allow terminally ill patients who are in a preferred hospice program to live out their final days at no cost.    Caregivers are in our home 24 hours a day to provide care for the residents.   Our home has 3 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and a screened porch area.

Slidell Church Basketball League:

The league was developed over 20+ years ago to give our youth an activity during the summer after school is out.  Relationships are formed with youth from other churches, and around our communities. We strive to teach Christ through the activity of basketball to build relationships with one another and with Jesus Christ.

The Slidell Police Association:

The Association was formed in 2005 to assist Slidell Police Officers and the City of Slidell citizens by bridging the gap between the police and citizens. The organization holds charity events such as Cook-Offs and Toys from Cops. They also help police officers and their families with tragic events.

Boy Scouts:

Scouts BSA is where youth develop outdoor survival skills, self-confidence, and ethics through youth-planned activities with increased attention to service, community engagement, and leadership. The scout slogan is Do a Good Turn Daily.  Some of these good turns have included serving at special events honoring veterans and law enforcement, or conducting service projects such as beautifying a school, recycling, and rebuilding a nature trail.

Presenters of the Slidell Heritage Festival are Rotary Club of Slidell, and Rotary Club of Slidell Northshore, The New Orleans Advocate/St. Tammany Farmer, and the City of Slidell.
