Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington received a generous donation for Operation Blessing last week.

Mr. Elvin Ervin, a member of Salem Baptist Church, Plain Dealing, came by the Sheriff’s Conference Room in Benton to make the special donation. “I appreciate residents like Mr. Ervin who go the extra mile to help meet the needs of others who may be struggling in the parish,” said Sheriff Whittington.

Operation Blessing was developed in 1998 the day before Thanksgiving. It is not just a holiday food program. The program operates year-round. It features a food bank and is staffed by the Bossier Sheriff’s Office Posse and Auxiliary volunteers. The food bank is a nonprofit corporation that operates without tax dollars. Its cost is underwritten by area businesses and private citizens who share our conviction that we are to help those who can’t help themselves.
