Emmaus Shelter “Likes” LaGrange Banking Company
Emmaus Shelter was proud to partner with LaGrange Banking Company in a campaign to honor Mothers in our community. May 1 through May 31, LaGrange Banking Company donated $10, up to a maximum of $500, to Emmaus Shelter for each "Like" of the LaGrange Banking Company Facebook page.
Jessica David explains the work of Emmaus Shelter saying, “Sometimes it may seem to women struggling with homelessness or domestic violence that they have nowhere to turn for help. Here in LaGrange, Emmaus Shelter offers opportunity and hope to those in need. The mission of Emmaus Women's Shelter is to provide refuge, restoration, and reintegration to homeless women and their children. We rely on donations to help with providing these services and we are grateful for the support of LaGrange Banking Company and their followers on Facebook.”
Announcing the campaign Charles Sweat, President and CEO said, "LaGrange Banking Company is committed to supporting worthy causes in our community. Mothers are the backbone of our society. Emmaus Shelter offers opportunity and assistance for those Mothers who need it most. We are proud to partner with Jessica David and her colleagues to provide these much-needed financial resources for their work.”
