Group donates $1,000 to Operation Blessing
The residents at Willow Lake in Bossier made a generous donation to help support Operation Blessing.
Dale Phillips with the Willow Lake Neighborhood Group in Bossier City presented a check for $1,000 Wednesday to Capt. Doug Lauter of the Bossier Sheriff’s Office in support of Operation Blessing, the food pantry program.
Operation Blessing provides food for 500 elderly and needy families in Bossier Parish each month and relies on donations from the individuals and businesses.
“We have been helping meet the food needs of our elderly and needy residents for years now, and it’s all because of the support like folks at Willow Lake,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.
“Operation Blessing is funded with no tax dollars, and their donation today will help us continue to meet the most basic need of our residents.”
