ST. CHARLES PARISH COLLECTING DONATIONS FOR THANKSGIVING BASKETS
Department of Community Services
The St. Charles Parish Department of Community Services is currently collecting donations at their New Sarpy Office for the annual Thanksgiving Basket Program until Nov. 21.
“November is a time to remember the residents in our community who are struggling, which is why we have this program,” said Director of Community Services Joan Diaz “Our goal for this year is to deliver up to 200 baskets to families in need.”
As part of the Thanksgiving Basket Program, the department provides baskets of goods to residents in need for the holidays each November. Each basket contains a turkey and other dishes that one would find at a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
Residents are asked to drop off either monetary donations of $10 or a frozen turkey at the Community Services’ Office at 14564 River Road in New Sarpy or by calling (985) 764-7944 to arrange a pickup.
All clients are screened by the department staff.
For more information on the program, residents may contact the Department of Community Services at (985) 764-7944.
The mission of St. Charles Parish government is to provide high quality, efficient services to sustain and enhance the quality of life for all residents of St. Charles Parish.
