Neighbors Federal Credit Union is proud to announce a partnership between the Neighbors Capital Area Foundation and the Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center (BRCAC) for several fundraising events in 2013.
The BRCAC plays a vital role in our community in the fight against child abuse. Their mission is to lessen the trauma experienced by child victims when abuse allegations are investigated, and to provide them support during subsequent proceedings within the criminal justice system.
The Center is designed to be non-threatening and to reduce anxiety for children and families while providing forensic interviews for evidence collections. The BRCAC provides coordination of investigation, prosecution, and treatment by bringing together child protection services, the district attorney’s office, law enforcement, medical and mental health professionals as a multi-disciplinary team.
As part of this partnership, the Foundation is a platinum sponsor of BRCAC’s 7th Annual Celebrity Waiter Event that will be held from 7-9pm on July 10, 2013 at Walk-On’s near LSU. Tickets are $50 in advance and can be purchased online at http://batonrougecac.org/.
The Neighbors Capital Area Foundation Fund is part of Neighbors Federal Credit Union’s continued mission of community service making monetary contributions to non-profit organizations that make a positive impact in our communities. For more information, contact Foundation Coordinator Gary LaBauve at email@example.com or call 225-819-4372.

“Hand It On” Description
Do you know someone who could use a little lift?
Perhaps it’s someone who’s always taking time to help others before themselves, or a customer at an auto repair shop who couldn’t afford to pay the bill. Or maybe you’d like to help out a member of the military who serves his or her country but struggles financially. Well, here’s your chance! With the help of WAFB, you can “Hand It On”.
WAFB Street Beat Reporter Greg Meriwether’s is lead man for our inspiring series “Hand It On”. Here’s how it works: Each week, Greg gives someone $300. That person will then have to “Hand It On” by giving away the cash to someone who needs a little lift in life, or someone who’s done a great deed. There are only a few rules. You can’t give the cash to any of your relatives and our news cameras must be able to come along as you “Hand It On”.
WATCH “HAND IT ON” EACH TUESDAY NIGHT ON WAFB 9NEWS AT 10.
Please Visit Lucy’s Retired Surfer Bar and Restaurant during the month of February and order the Fish Tacos. With every order, 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the BRCAC!!!!
Please show your support!!!!

2011 Success Seminar was hosted by Pastor Jeffery and Wilma Phillips, along with the World Shakers Church International Family. This seminar was an absolute success and many throughout the congregation and community were provided with information regarding education, finance/credit, the judicial system and child sexual abuse prevention. All presenters are a part of World Shakers Church International. Presenters represented Remington College, Neighbors Credit Union, the Legal System and Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center. As a result of this seminar, individuals have reportedly made life changing decisions.
According to Pastor Phillips, this seminar was only the beginning. His vision is to work with leaders in the community and begin to educate people on overcoming defeat, in their lives.
