EDG Community Service

Thank you to everyone who made gift and monetary contributions.  Your generosity and compassion are what the true meaning of Christmas is all about.  God Bless.

EDG’s Metairie Community Service Team has adopted a family of three (3) for Christmas; a widowed mother, her three-year-old son, and her four-month-old daughter.  The father was an EDG employee, in the Utility Services Group, who passed away in April leaving behind his then pregnant wife and young son. 

We will be collecting gifts for the family to make this first Christmas without their husband and father a little brighter.  The "Angel Tree" is located in the lobby of our 7th floor along with information about the family.  Each ornament on the tree has an item needed for the family.  Please take an ornament(s) off the tree and purchase the requested item.  All items should be new and in their original packaging.  Each tag will have instructions on whether or not it should be wrapped. 

Return all gifts with the associated ornament attached to the 7th floor office near the library facing the stairwell.  Gifts will be accepted beginning now through Thursday, December 13.

Monetary donations will also be accepted (please see Ruta at the Front Desk) and will be spent toward the purchase of additional gifts or household items.

Thank you!
