BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Louisiana Gold and Coins was the sight of a memorable event on Monday morning.

The St. George Fire Department and Society of St. Vincent de Paul Baton Rouge received some special gifts thanks to the efforts of a “local business owner and her best friend forever.”

This has been a year long effort by these two.

The gifts came in the form of lots and lots of toys.

The event took place at 9 a.m. and “This is a prelude to the annual St. George Santa Parades food and toy collection effort the first two weekends of December,” according to the St. George Fire Department.

Louisiana Gold and Coins is located at 5525 S. Sherwood Forest Blvd.
