Local officials, along with many from the community, turned out to Jacquelyn Park in Minden Thursday evening for Light of Hope, an event and rally to bring awareness to the needs of abused and/or neglected children. The event was sponsored by Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).
Judge Jeff Thompson was the guest speaker at the Light of Hope event Thursday afternoon. Thompson was there to represent all judges and law officers in Webster Parish. He urged the crowd to be the difference in a child’s life and to write down the DCFS Child Abuse Hotline. If you or somebody you know are witnessing or in the situation of child abuse please call the Child Abuse Hotline at 1-855-452-5437.
