The spirit of giving was on display in D’Iberville today for one local organization.
The Grand Theatre in D’Iberville presented Loaves and Fishes with a check today for more than $3,500 to benefit the organization.
This donation stems from a donation drive the theatre ran from the end of September to November 17th. Funds from this donation will go towards operating costs and preparing the meals that Loaves and Fishes serve to the community. Loaves and Fishes Executive Director Bob Learned said, “It takes $10,000 a month to operate. So, they’re providing over a third of a month of operations which is really important, particularly this time of year because we’re not only doing our normal services, but we’re helping to support the cold weather shelter. So, this is going to help offset a lot of different expenses.”
Both Loaves and Fishes and the Grand say they hope to work together in the future.
