Livingston Parish sheriff’s deputies made more than 500 deliveries Friday during Sheriff Jason Ard’s 27th annual Christmas Crusade, so more than 1,200 underprivileged children in Livingston Parish can have a Merry Christmas.

“Thanks to all of the deputies and volunteers who gave of their time to help,” Ard said in a Facebook post. “And thank you to everyone who donated to this wonderful program. Without you, none of this would be possible.”

The gifts were delivered for children 12 and younger.

Livingston Parish deputies collected toys and monetary donations for the crusade starting at the end of November.
