Chad P. Calongne of Rotolo’s Pizzeria and his partner are going to make sure at least one struggling family has a happy Christmas in Ascension Parish this year.

Calongne is asking for a 200 word, or less, essay outlining why the family needs help.

“We have posted to our Facebook requesting submittals from people or families who may need some help this Christmas,” Calongne said.

Essays can be written and submitted by someone who knows a needy recipient, or by a needy family member or individual themselves.

Submittals are due by Monday, Dec. 13. E-mail essays to chad@rotolos.com

The winning family will receive a Christmas tree, a Christmas meal and presents, Calongne said.
