The Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office will hold a gift drive on December 16 for nursing home residents in the parish.

The Sheriff's Office says that many nursing home residents may feel overlooked or forgotten during the holidays, especially those who may not have family to purchase gifts for them.

"With Covid restrictions, IPSO is very conscious of the loneliness these residents have endured in the last 9 months," said Sheriff Tommy Romero. "Our employees are holding a drive within our offices, but we would also like to extend this gift giving opportunity to the residents of Iberia Parish."

Iberia Parish residents can drop off donated items to the Patrol Division Office located at 322 Providence Street in New Iberia from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Wednesday, December 16th.

Deputies with IPSO will then divide up all donations between the five nursing homes in the parish.

Suggested items:

  • Hats/Beanie
  • Socks
  • Slippers/No slip socks
  • Lap blankets
  • Fleece jackets/sweaters
  • Bodywash/cologne/perfume
  • Word Search/Cross Word Puzzles
