Lafayette Nelson and his wife, Patricia, Each child was provided with $300 to pick out toys, clothes and necessities to brighten the holiday season. This program was funded by donations from Laurel Fire Department’s calendar sales and donations from Howard Industries and Dollar General. The grandchildren, ages 14, 6 and 2, were all smiles as they went around the store with Lt. Tim Tisdale, Lt. Antonio Moseley, Lt. Matt Freeman, Battalion Chief Darnell Milsap and Chief James Brown.
