Banking on BR

Join Us in Banking On BR!

The COVID-19 pandemic crisis has touched all of our lives and all parts of the Baton Rouge community.

The less fortunate in the Greater Baton Rouge area are among the most affected. We’re “Banking on BR” to raise $100,000 for those who need it most. The Guaranty Foundation and GMFS Mortgage are asking the community to join them in “Banking on BR,” to support the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. Each of these organizations is matching $25,000 of community donations – that’s $50,000 total in matches!

Every dollar you donate today can help provide three meals to help your Baton Rouge neighbors.

The need has never been greater:

Before COVID-19, one in seven individuals in the 11-parish service area and one in five children were facing food insecurity. The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank is now responding to an even larger need for a variety of reasons:

  • – Families are experiencing temporary unemployment and lost income
  • – Contact-dependent donations and food drives are currently not possible
  • – Food stockpiling has resulted in fewer community donations
  • – A decrease in donations through the Retail Store Program

Won’t You Feed Your Neighbor?

We’re not together, but we’re not alone!

One silver lining of this crisis has been the chance to see more of our neighbors (from a safe distance). Now, more than ever, our neighbors are in need. We’re all part of this Red Stick Neighborhood – let’s bank on each other by Banking on BR. Donate now!
