THIBODAUX, La. (BRPROUD) — Over 800 jackets have been collected by the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office for area schoolchildren in need.

Out of the jackets collected, 555 were bought using a $15,000 grant from The Lorio Foundation and 250 were collected in a local donation drive, according to LPSO.

“With so much going on during Hurricane Ida recovery, it’s a blessing to be involved in this endeavor to make sure every kid has a jacket for the winter,” said Sheriff Craig Webre. “We are thankful to The Lorio Foundation for their generous donation, and we appreciate the efforts of Thibodaux Family Church and Bless Your Heart Nonprofit as we continue to rebuild Lafourche Parish.”

The sheriff’s office also worked with Thibodaux Family Church and Bless Your Heart Nonprofit Corporation.
