BATON ROUGE, LA — Iberia Bank, the 126-year-old subsidiary of Iberia Bank Corporation, is launching a community support program aimed at giving back to local non-profit organizations and the community. Titled “i Gives Back,” the program will touch several sectors in the community kicking off in August with a partnership with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
The “i Gives Back” initiative is complementary to the work that Iberia Bank is already engaged in with local non-profit and civic organizations. Charities selected for the program are well-respected charities in the community led by responsible professionals. Iberia Bank associates have donated time and talent with many of the selected organizations, and this program will further the bank’s involvement with these non-profit groups.
Iberia Bank is launching its “i Gives Back” campaign this month with a partnership with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. From now through September 6th the community can donate non-perishable food items and make monetary donations at Iberia Bank branch locations throughout the Greater Baton Rouge area.
Iberia Bank will pay it forward by matching monetary donations.
“We have so many clients, associates and friends of the Bank that want to give back to our community and are excited to partner with Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank to provide assistance to many families in need,” said Ben Marmande, Baton Rouge President. “Iberia Bank has a great partnership with this organization and we hope to continue to lend a helping hand in eliminating hunger in our community.”
High demand for food during the summer months has created an urgent need for non-perishable food items at this non-profit organization. “The summer months are always a difficult time, so we are very honored to have Iberia Bank host this campaign to help us address the needs of those who are hungry in the Baton Rouge area,” said Mike Manning, CEO of the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
