New Iberia business recognizing front-line heroes amid COVID-19


NEW IBERIA, La. (KLFY) — The Cane River Pecan Company wants to show their appreciation to healthcare workers here in South Louisiana and around the country.

CNO Cane River Pecan Company, Jady Regard, says, “People nominated doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, paramedics to send out a free gift of pecan cookies to anyone in the United States.”

The company is recognizing and rewarding front-line heroes around the United States who are keeping us safe from COVID-19.
