Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office to Hold Holiday Food Drive
It's that time of year to start thinking of those less fortunate. Thankfully in our community, there are several options in place to do what you can to help those in need.
The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office will be holding a food drive to help those that may otherwise go hungry during this season of giving and caring.
Along with the North Shreveport Business Association, CPSO hopes that no family will be without food this Thanksgiving, and is asking the public to help out in any way they can to aid those who need it.
"The North Shreveport Business Association along with Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator released this statement to the public asking for help"
Sheriff Steve Prator invites all to participate in the fourth annual Caddo Sheriff’s Office Thanksgiving Food Drive benefiting the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana.
This year we are hoping to help them beat their 2021 record of 6,018 pounds of nonperishable food items (providing meals for 4,500 people) which far exceeds their collection of 2,432 pounds the year before.
Donations of dry goods and food staples are being accepted through November 21st at the Roberts Center, 1500 North Market Street, Suite R-300.
The Top 10 most requested food drive items are canned meat (tuna fish, salmon, or chicken); peanut butter; dried beans in a one or two-pound bag; rice in a one or two-pound bag; pasta/macaroni and cheese; canned vegetables; canned fruit; any boxed cereal, oatmeal or grits; flour and sugar (five-pound bag or less). No glass containers, please.
Please help us make this a tremendous success."
