Library Friends Receive Donation

Sheriff Jayson Richardson has chosen another non-profit charity organization in DeSoto Parish for our monthly Whiskers for Charity program!  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 $14,000 has been raised since November of 2021, which is money going right back into our parish!  For January, Sheriff Richardson has chosen the Pelican Friends of the Library!

The non-profit organization “Pelican Friends of the Library” assists the local library in hosting the annual Summer Reading Program each year by helping purchase snacks for children and gathering supplies for decorating.  The Friends group also helps with others special events such as Bingo, Adult Programs, Community Easter Egg Hunts, Halloween Parties, Family Drive-In Movie Nights, and much more!  They hold book sales and garage sales to help raise money for the programs and accept donations throughout the year. This is a fantastic group of people that are always willing to help out in any way they can.  If you would like to donate, or volunteer with the Friends of the Library in Pelican, you may contact them at (318) 755-2353 to find out more.
