It is time to announce where that whisker money went for the month of May! As you all know, DeSoto Deputies have been allowed to grow out their beards in exchange for a small monthly donation that goes right back into our community.
This month, instead of donating to a local charity, Sheriff Richardson wanted to do something special for our local elderly residents. Richardson decided to use the donations for the month of May to buy supplies and cook for our local nursing home residents. Hamburgers, hotdogs, and all the fixings were delivered to Mansfield Nursing Center and DeSoto Rehabilitation Center! Residents were excited to see all the food and smiling faces from the Sheriff’s Office stop by. And of course, many stories and laughs were had along the way.
The Sheriff’s Office thanks the staff of both for allowing our deputies to bring by a nice hot meal, and for taking extra safety precautions in protecting residents from the spread of germs/Covid in the process.
