People Helping People

The people of Jeff Davis Parish and its surrounding areas opened their hearts and wallets to help a number of deserving groups this weekend. Friday afternoon, golfers hit the greens at the Jennings Country Club to raise money to support the local Communities Against Domestic Abuse. Later that night, hundreds gathered at the Lake Arthur Park for the 2013 Relay for Life, which raised funds to support cancer research and patients through the American Cancer Society. Finally, on Saturday, a number of individuals, as well as veterans and auxiliary groups from across the parish and surrounding region, spent time at the Southwest Louisiana War Veterans Home in Jennings to support the Ancillary Committee’s annual Spring Fling, which provides funding for veterans’ activities and nursing supplies, among other services. For a full report on these events and more photos, see Tuesday’s edition of the Jennings Daily News.
