New Roads, La (NBC33) — First Responders in New Roads are taking their work one step further with their first annual Christmas Drop.
David Jarreau is an EMT for Acadian Ambulance in New Roads.
He got help from the New Roads Volunteer Fire Deparment, and even his own family to bring gifts to the needy this afternoon.
Jarreau says it's something he's wanted to do for a long time, and a tradition that he hopes will keep going.
"I want people to see what were doing, and I want them to emulate what were doing and go out in your community and do the same thing. I don't want christmas to be an excuse to do something like this, I want this to be done year round," said EMT David Jarreau
