Recently you may have noticed Bienville Parish Sheriff’s deputies sporting beards, moustaches or goatees. Sheriff John Ballance is allowing facial hair to be grown by deputies who have pledged 50 dollars a month throughout the remainder of the year to be donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The time period may be extended through February 2023 to coincide with the Minden St. Jude’s Auction. Sheriff Ballance has pledged to match those donations received through the end of 2022. Donations will be presented in memory of or in honor of present or past patients of St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital. We ask your help in identifying those to be honored or memorialized at that time.
