Staff Report
Ascension Parish Sheriff Bobby Webre and his staff brightened the holiday season by distributing toys for children Dec. 12.

Ascension Parish Sheriff Bobby Webre and department employees spread cheer Dec. 12 in both Donaldsonville and Gonzales by giving out toys to hundreds of children.

“Thank you to all who made donations to our program. With your help, we have been able to provide toys this Christmas for some 600 children,” the sheriff’s spokesperson said via a Facebook post.

Families are chosen based on income and an application. Those chosen are notified by mail.

“There is no better feeling than giving back,” the sheriff said in an NBC 33 television report.
