Sheriff's Office Distributes Toys to Children


On Friday morning, St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s deputies helped spread Christmas joy to inmates’ children. Deputies loaded and delivered dozens of toys provided by the parishioners of the Church of the Assumption in Franklin.

The gifts are made possible through an ongoing 17-year partnership between the Sheriff’s Office and the church. Sheriff Scott Anslum, a parishioner of the church continued the tradition this year.
