“We need to get rid of all of the debris, and trash and build up the foundation. We need all the help that we can get, and we appreciate how the community is wrapping their arms around us, individuals that are coming and supporting us.”
Mr. Bob Giles, Giles Automotive Dealer Principal and community philanthropist, commented, “When I heard about what happened to these churches I knew Giles Automotive had to lend a hand. Our motto is giving back to the community, and I can’t think of a more deserving group than these churches that have stood strong in the community for more than 100 years.”
He went on to say, “I strongly encourage my fellow local businesses to donate, and I have faith the community will pull together and make easy work of the $50,000 goal. It would be so wonderful to give these churches over $30,000 each to help with rebuilding, a temporary location, or whatever their needs be for the congregation.”
Donations can be made to “Giles gives back to St. Landry churches” through Iberia Bank.
