In the chilly morning hours of Friday, October 30, 2020, Grant Parish Sheriff Steve McCain and his department were up early cooking and serving pancake plates.
The 8th annual pancake breakfast held by the GPSO sold pancake plates to raise money for the Toys 4 Kids program. The program helps provide Christmas presents to children in Grant Parish.
$4,884 was raised by the GPSO, making this year’s event the most successful yet. According to Donna Bryant, with the GPSO, the program provided 329 children with toys, food, clothes, and shoes last year.
“We also accept donated bikes that we take to Angola’s bike shop to have restored. They look brand new when they’re done, and we then give them to children in the parish,” stated Sheriff McCain.
