Kids get gifts from Iberville Parish deputies

PLAQUEMINE, LA (WAFB) - Some kids in Iberville Parish got a new ride over the weekend.

The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office gave tricycles and other presents to 190 Plaquemine children Sunday morning.

Authorities were collecting the bikes and other toys since the summer.

Everything was made possible through local donations.

Iberville Parish Sheriff Brett Stassi said it's a great way to give back to the community.

"The deputies here do care about the community and this is a time and a season of giving.  So we're thankful that we're able to give back something to the kids in our community," said Stassi.

The sheriff's office does community giveaways like this each Christmas and Thanksgiving.
