CAROLINE DARBY’S CHRISTMAS WISH
The annual Caroline Darby’s Christmas Wish, formerly know as Toys for Tots, is preparing for the upcoming holiday. Last year the program put a smile on over 500 children’s faces, providing toys to families that might not have been able to afford them otherwise.
This program, hosted by the Covington Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #43, would not be possible without the support of our community and local businesses.
The FOP lodge is seeking monetary or new toy donations from anyone able, to ensure that those less fortunate are able to enjoy the holidays too. Any help you can provide will go directly to funding this program and ensuring its continued success.
Our tentative distribution date is Saturday, December 12th from 9am to 12pm. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please make checks payable to “Caroline Darby’s Christmas Wish” and mail them to:
FOP Lodge #43
PO Box 522
Covington, LA 70434
For more information, or to have new toy donations picked up, please call our office at (985)892-8500 and ask for Tammy Bushnell or Renee Cazaubon.
Thank you for taking the time to help those in need and keeping this program a success!
