Thursday, December 15, 2011
Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, including Sheriff Mike Neustrom, delivered a virtual truck load of toys to Faith House today. This year celebrates the 11th year that Sheriff’s Office employees have donated toys and other gifts to the women and children of Faith House. Donations are collected as part of the LPSO employee annual Christmas luncheon. “Faith House provides a critical and needed service to families of the area. Being able to provide a little holiday cheer to the women and children at Faith House is something that I, as well as all of the deputies and the other employees who donated, are very proud of,” said Sheriff Neustrom. Donations this year included a variety of toys including trucks, dolls, board games and many stuffed animals. Clothing and personal items were donated for the mothers. Faith House provides a safety sanctuary for victims of domestic violence.
