The Iberville Sheriff's Office helped 24 local families enjoy a great Thanksgiving meal with its first Thanksgiving basket drive in November. "Thanks to the generosity of the Sheriff's Office staff and donations by local businesses, we were able to provide these families with turkeys, hams and all the trimmings for a wonderful Thanksgiving meal," said Sheriff Brett Stassi. "Our deputies really stepped up to help out the community with their donations, and the donations by the businesses helped us purchase the turkeys and hams."
