Sheriff Jayson Richardson has chosen another non-profit charity organization in DeSoto Parish for a cool $1,000 donation. Every month, deputies can grow out their whiskers in exchange for a $20 donation per month that will be given to a charity of the Sheriff’s choosing. Thus far over $13,000 has been raised since last November, which is money going right back into our parish. For December, Sheriff Richardson has chosen the DeSoto Parish 4:H Foundation.
The DeSoto Parish 4-H Foundation hosts several project clubs such as the Junior Leaders, Livestock, Sewing, and Shooting Sports. We are fortunate that each school in our Parish has its own 4-H program hosted by teachers and parents across DeSoto.
4-H is the world’s largest youth organization to date and aims at shaping young lives into become young upstanding leaders of their community. The Shooting Sports team alone hosts over 130 youth, many of whom have gone onto state and national championships in recent years.
Anyone wishing to donate, or volunteer for the 4-H program should reach out to their office at 318.872.0533, or you can visit their social media page.
