#9 - “Friendship”
The Shreveport (LA) Chapter of The Links Incorporated
Who We Are:
Established in 1946 by a circle of nine friends in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, The Links Incorporated is a premier international, nonprofit volunteer service organization. Built upon a legacy of friends and providing service that changes lives. The organization is committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the cultural and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry. Our colors are emerald green and white. The additional colors of pink and green, red and white, and black and gold represent organizations in which members are involved. Dedicated to its mission of service and leadership, The Shreveport Chapter of The Links Incorporated are civic leaders; lawmakers and judiciary; medical and healthcare providers; role models, educators and mentors, activists and volunteers working tirelessly at the forefront of transforming the Shreveport-Bossier community. This year marks the 43rd year that the Shreveport Chapter has served our community by engaging like-minded organizations and individuals for partnership. We have partnered with the Caddo Parish Schools, University Health’s department of pediatrics and the River Bend Rotary Club to present a healthy lifestyles program to students at Caddo Heights Math Science Elementary over the past seven years.
