LAFOURCHE PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) — The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office has started accepting donations for its 28th Annual Christmas Bike Giveaway.
This year, the sheriff’s office is partnering with nonprofits Bless Your Heart and HERE. LPSO said they have distributed more than 4,800 bicycles to children in need over the last 28 years of this giveaway.
“The needs of our community are great right now,” said Sheriff Webre. “Rather than duplicating ongoing efforts, we felt teaming with a local nonprofit group who has already identified those most affected by the storm was the best way to reach those most in need. We are grateful to Bless Your Heart and HERE for assisting logistically and financially in helping to ensure these children have a great Christmas in spite of what they have endured.”
The sheriff’s office is accepting bike and monetary donations. Checks can be made payable to the Lafourche Deputies Associations, the memo line should include “Bike Giveaway.” Donations can also be dropped off at any LPSO location.
