NEW ORLEANS — As people make their Mardi Gras parade plans, they shouldn’t forget the cops and deputies who will be working overtime to keep everyone safe.
That’s the topic of this week’s Commentary by Eyewitness News Political Analyst and Gambit columnist Clancy DuBos:
While most of us are having fun during Mardi Gras, hundreds of cops will be working long hours to keep us safe along parade routes. They deserve our thanks.
For years now, the New Orleans Police and Justice Foundation has offered a great way to show our appreciation: It’s called the Adopt-A-Cop program.
For a tax-deductible gift of $10 or more, you can provide the Krewe in Blue with hot meals, healthy snacks and beverages during Carnival’s long days and nights.
Giving is easy.
Go to the foundation's website, and make your donation now. I did.
Because without the blue, there would be no purple, green and gold.
