This years, Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office’s Toy Drive event was a success even though the parish continues to experience the effects of COVID-19 and the impacts it’s had on families across the world, according to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Stuart Wright.

“The holidays are a season for giving and caring about each other,” he said.

During the first couple of weeks of December, ladies in the NPSO Main Office Administrative Divisions began collecting items during the annual toy drive to assist families during the holidays.

Each year this has been a successful effort.

This year, donations made to the drive by the public and deputies were given to CASA of Natchitoches to distribute to families and children in need.

The NPSO thanks everyone for the donations and wishes the community a very Merry Christmas.
