The Natchitoches Office of Community Services is offering parish residents free bottled water and personal protective equipment at sites across the parish.
Parish employees distributed the supplies at Creston Baptist Church and the Readhimer Community Center Aug. 31 and Greenville Baptist Church in Clarence and Kingdom Life Center in Campti Sept. 1.
Organized by Office of Community Services Director Sharon Harris, the events were conducted in a drive-through format.
