On Wednesday, Apr. 5, the DeQuincy Police Department participated with Ward 3 Marshal’s office in their 2nd Annual Senior Luncheon for Senior Citizens.
Last year there were over 450 homebound seniors that received the luncheons. This year the DeQuincy Police Dept. was asked to participate, and 15 lunches were passed out to our seniors.
The event was organized by LTC Annajo Haynes, with several officers participating in delivering the meals.
This year’s goal was 500 lunches. The meals were picked up at the Lake Charles Civic Center and then passed out in the DeQuincy area. The DeQuincy Police Dept. is proud to participate in any program that helps our seniors.
