60 Holiday Dinners Distributed by New Orleans Firemen’s Federal Credit Union

60 Holiday Dinners Distributed by New Orleans Firemen’s Federal Credit Union

New Orleans Firemen’s Federal Credit Union collected and distributed 60 holiday meal baskets in their Bogalusa and Lockport communities. Firemen’s Federal has an active presence in Bogalusa and Lockport and is the primary community development financial institution serving these underserved communities.

 

This endeavor was possible due to the generosity and compassion of Firemen’s Federal Credit Union and their partner Kasasa, Ltd. Vouchers for turkeys were donated by Kasasa, and Firemen’s Federal employees collected, packed, and distributed the meal baskets. Each basket was packed to feed a family of five and contained the turkey voucher, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, green beans, yams, desert, and other items needed to provide a complete holiday feast.

 

“The last two years fighting to survive a pandemic, and this past August’s devastating hurricane, have taken a toll on our population. It has created emotional and financial strain, uncertainty, and stress on underserved family units. This is especially hard during the holiday season. Knowing how serious food insecurity is in Louisiana, we are honored to have the privilege to give back in this small way to our communities,” said Firemen’s Federal CEO Judy DeLucca.

 

New Orleans Firemen’s Federal Credit Union is a full-service financial institution serving over 26,000 members across Louisiana and Mississippi, and the second oldest federally insured credit union. As a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), New Orleans Firemen’s Federal Credit Union proudly serves the underserved and brings a full array of financial service products to communities that have been underbanked and excluded by mainstream financial institutions.
