Red River Bank donates $10,000 to greater Baton Rouge food bank

Baton Rouge, Louisiana (September 12, 2016)—In an ongoing effort to support their community, and to help those affected by the area's recent flooding, Red River Bank has donated $10,000 to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.

Due to the recent August flooding, the Food Bank's facility received four feet of water, ruining much of what was to be distributed to individuals in need. This nonprofit organization inventories and warehouses donated food and other products, which is then distributed to a variety of community agencies that serve the people in need. The Food Bank has been accepting donations in an effort to get back to doing what they do best, which is helping people.  Red River Bank is honored to be helping the Food Bank in its mission.

"Louisiana is strong because of our people," said David K. Thompson, Baton Rouge Market President. "And together we'll see our community rebuilt better than ever. We're grateful to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank for helping to keep that spirit strong."

In addition to this donation, Red River Bank has implemented several efforts to help those in its community with financial matters, as well as dealing with insurance, clean up and disaster assistance. "We are committed to making our communities strong, especially in times of crisis," says Thompson.
