Having books in the home can help elementary students have success both in school and later in life. Our family at Essential Federal Credit Union is joining WBRZ's Brandi Harris in asking you to help bring the important gift of reading to local children.
Ways you can help:
Be sure to make your donation between May 4th and June 28th. Books will be divided into groups and brought to parish school library directors for distribution (East Baton Rouge Parish, West Baton Rouge Parish, Livingston Parish, Ascension Parish, Iberville Parish).
January 20, 2022, Essential sponsored of the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge’s MPAC and the Cary Saurage Community Arts Center grand opening. It was a wonderful event at a truly unique community art space. Learn more about this new 12,000 square foot creative space by visiting www.artsbr.org/cscac.
For the second year, Essential sponsored Sylvia's Toys for Christmas to help Santa reach every kid possible. Members, employees and others from the community dropped toys off at Essential Branches as well as the special Drive-Thru Toy Drive event Essential hosted at it's Operations Center.
The hundreds of toys collected were sorted by age and gender, then wrapped and distributed by Saint Vincent de Paul to children in our community.
Monetary funds are collected year-round and go directly to Saint Vincent de Paul.
Essential partnered with WAFB to Lift Up Louisiana and helped restore the community after Hurricane Ida.
