Devyn Dellafosse, 7, was having a hard time finding the energy she needed Saturday morning and understandably so. She spent most of Friday night battling a fever. Her mom, Stacy, even gave her the option to spend the day in bed, but the youngster turned it down. Instead, she chose to head to the Calcasieu Council on Aging at 8 a.m. with the rest of her family to help participate in the annual Thanksgiving food basket deliveries. The event is a partnership between Phillips 66 and the CCOA focused on providing for the elderly throughout the region.
“I told her she should stay home, but she just really wanted to go,” Stacy said. “They see that it’s the season to be thankful for what you have, and I think this is a great opportunity for them to give back.”
