Donation to DeSoto Faith and Fostering

“Faith & Fostering believes that every young person should feel safe & supported when entering adulthood. We serve homeless young adults (18-24) by providing housing, basic needs, and community volunteers to offer support to ensure their success.”

It’s that time again folks!  Following the success of Sheriff Jayson Richardson’s commitment to donate whisker money to local charity, this month’s chosen charity is DeSoto Faith and Fostering.  Today, Sheriff Richardson was flanked by numerous bearded deputies to present a check for $1,000 to Christi Robinson and Barbara Lewis, representatives with Faith and Fostering.  Each month, deputies with the DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office are donating cash in exchange for getting to grow out their beards!  Sheriff Richardson will be picking a new local charity to send those donations to each month.  We are grateful for all the wonderful work this organization provides to DeSoto Parish, and the compassion in which they lead with.  You can find more info about Faith and Fostering by searching their name on Facebook!
