WEST MONROE, La. – Coast Professional, Inc. (Coast) presented a check for $7,000 to the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home & Family Ministries (LBCH) at Coast’s West Monroe office today. Coast’s donation is a result of Coast’s dress down for charity program in which employees donate $20 or more for the option to wear jeans and business casual attire for the month. This donation includes the employee contributions from Coast’s West Monroe, LA office and the company match of up to $1500.
The employees of Coast selected LBCH to be the recipient of the charity dress down program for the months of January, February, and March as a result of the impact that LBCH has in the local area. The employees vote bimonthly for the charity that will receive the donations raised through the dress down program for the upcoming period.
All proceeds from the event will benefit local families and help support LBCH’s mission to provide love, care, and hope in Christ to children and families in need. This includes providing residential child care and foster care, job and life skills training, pregnancy resource ministries, foster care and adoption, and orphan care.
“Coast is incredibly honored to be able to donate to local charities that make a significant positive impact within our community and establish an appreciation of charity throughout our organization,” stated Everett Stagg, CFO and Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors at Coast. He continued, “Our staff selected the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home & Family Ministries for their efforts to create a better environment for children and families in need in the Monroe, Louisiana area. On behalf of Coast and our employees, we are proud to give this donation to the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home & Family Ministries.”
