Help Needed This Mardi Gras

Every year the Coliseum Square Association collects and distributes snacks to our 6th District police officers during the Mardi Gras season. The officers work long hours while we enjoy the parades and the snacks help them make it through the long days and nights. The officers prefer healthy snacks that they can keep in their pockets and munch on when they are hungry. Fruits, nuts and creative snacks are more appreciated than potato chips and other less nourishing foods.

Individually bagged travel snacks that can be taken on the run are highly desired.

If you are interested in donating snacks or have questions, please contact Marianna Roll at or 504.319.7817.
