Christmas came early for some West Feliciana children thanks to the West Feliciana Sheriff's Toy Event.

The West Feliciana Sheriff's Department sponsored the annual toy event on Saturday at the middle school gym in St. Francisville.

There were 300 handmade wooden toys constructed and 50 refurbished bikes provided by inmates of Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. A generous donation by the Baton Rouge Bike Club made it possible to buy approximately 40 new bikes and donations of new toys distributed.

Each child was able to pick a new toy and a wooden toy, and bicycles were given away in a drawing.
