Louisiana - Over the past few days, Geaux 4 Kids visited every troop location in the state to deliver Geaux Bags.
Geaux Bags are designed to help displaced children by easing their emergency transition into the protective custody of foster care. Each bag contains clothing items, a pillow, blanket, school backpack, water, snack, toiletry items, and even a note of encouragement from another child.
Troopers are partnering with them to distribute these bags to children in need and offer them to other law enforcement agencies in their respective troop areas to distribute as well. Major funding for this project was provided by the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement. More information about Geaux Bags is available by visiting their website, www.geauxbags.org.
