MBLB Supports NOPD Second District’s Annual Toy Drive

Derek O'Connor and Melissa Miller at NOPD Toy DriveMouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett was delighted to support the Seventh Annual Adopt An Angel Holiday Gift Drive benefiting NOPD Second District’s underprivileged children. The toy drive is a way to support the community at a special time of year when children look forward to seeing officers bearing gifts.

Associates Derek O’Connor and Melissa Miller played Santa for MBLB, each spending $250 on toys for children ages 4-8. They bought legos, footballs, basketballs, dolls, teddy bears, star wars stuff, board games, puzzles, drawing kits, a jukebox karaoke machine, a children’s cooking set, and a bead jewelry making set.

Donning their Santa hats, they delivered the toys to the Second District Station of the NOPD, where they arranged them around the Christmas tree set up in the lobby and had their photo snapped with the NOPD Commander on duty. Second District police officers plan to distribute the toys to kids in the neighborhood.
