Local businesses partner up to help with annual food drive
LAROSE, LA – Vision Communications, along with Frank’s Supermarkets, recently partnered with several other local businesses to help the Catholic Community Center’s food bank replenish much needed stock after a busy holiday season.
Since the food bank’s busiest season is usually October thru December, Vision Communications, Frank’s Supermarkets, The Lafourche Gazette, Coastal Broadcasting ESPN 100.3/KLEB 1600, and the Larose Civic Center collected non-perishable items for the Galliano-based Catholic Community Center.
Food bins were set-up for the public to donate items at Frank’s in Larose, Golden Meadow and Lockport, the Larose Civic Center and Vision Communications’ customer center in Larose.
According to Susan Terrebonne, Manager of the Catholic Community Center, many families in the area would not enjoy a holiday meal if it weren’t for the hard work of the center’s volunteers and the generosity of the South Lafourche community.
“From January to October, we have helped over 2000 families with food. We depend on our community to help us to fill the shelves beyond what we can purchase,” says Terrebonne. “In past years, Vision Communications, along with the many dedicated businesses of our area have helped us tremendously in restocking the shelves, and we’re humbly asking for help from our community throughout the year. We would like everyone to know that it is not expected, but it is very much appreciated.”
The Catholic Community Center is located at 9018 East Avenue A in Galliano. They accept non-perishable food items, clothing and other household items. A convenient drop-off bin is located in front of the main entrance allowing donations to be made even after hours.
