NFCU staff volunteers throughout GBR community for “Neighbors Day”

BATON ROUGE, LA (October 23, 2019) — Neighbors FCU’s staff took its day off to volunteer with charity organizations at 14 different locations throughout the Greater Baton Rouge Area. In honor of this event, City of Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome proclaimed October 14 th , 2019 as “Neighbors Day.”

For the third annual ”Neighbors Day,” roughly 265 NFCU employees volunteered more than 1,000 hours of service to the community.

“I’m just celebrating the work that they’re doing and honoring the theme of working and helping your neighbors,” Broome said during her “Neighbors Day” proclamation.

Neighbors Day was established after The Great Flood of 2016. Countless employees and members were deeply affected. NFCU staff members went out into the community to support their neighbors in need leaving a lasting impression. An annual day of service was established in their honor.

NFCU’s mission is to not only provide much-needed assistance to those in need, but to inspire others in Baton Rouge to give back to the community. Neighbors Day was a significant portion of the $406,289 worth of Community Impact in 2018.

“There are a lot of ways to define the success of your company,” Neighbors President and CEO Steve Webb said. “For us, success includes investing in and improving the communities we serve.  Neighbors Day presents an opportunity to impact thousands of people in a single day.”
