Sheriff’s Beard Donation For October

Sheriff Jayson Richardson has chosen the “Friends of the Library” in Logansport as this month’s recipient of our local whisker charity donation!  Several months ago, Sheriff Richardson began a new effort to highlight and give back to our local DeSoto Parish Non-Profit Charities.  Each month, Deputies can donate $20 to grow out their beards, and at the end of the month those donations are given to a group that Sheriff Richardson has personally chosen.  The month of October marks over $10,000 donated in the past 10 months, and the Friends of the Library received a donation of $1,040 this month!

Friends of the Library is a group that assists the local library by hosting and participating in events such as:  Breakfast with Santa, Letters to Santa, Veterans Day Programs, Trick or Treat at the Library, Easter Programs, Summer Reading Programs, Book Signings, and much more.  They put forth a ton of effort to ensure our kids have fun, educational, and interactive things to do in our Parish.  If you would like to donate or get involved with the Friends of the Library group, you may do so by contacting Vickie Jernigan at 936-254-4648.
