But, this year, their main focus is to help veterans in their "Christmas for the Veterans" event. Triple PT will be accepting donations like blankets, caps, socks, hats, and gloves to give to veterans.

The event will be at the Veterans Home of Northeast Louisiana on HWY 165 N on Friday, December 6, at 2 pm. They'll be making a meal for the veterans and presenting them with their Christmas gifts.

Fountain says they need more volunteers for the event, as well. Call her at (318) 503-4225 to donate items and sign up to volunteer at the event.
