BREA Gives Back

In 2015 BREA began its philanthropy initiative. Each month we ask members to help us with specific drives that help local charity organizations. See the list below to see how you can give back this month. 


April & May 2017 

During the months of April & May, BREA hosted a Fan Drive to offer relief from life-threatening heat for those who did not have or could not afford air-conditioning. A total of 10 fans were donated to the East Baton Rouge Council on Aging to help beat the summer heat!


July & August 2017

During the months of July & August, BREA hosted a Back to School Supplies Drive to assist parents and teachers in the Greater Baton Rouge area. 


September & October 2017 

During the months of September & October, BREA hosted a Children’s Costume Collection. Donations raised and costumes collected went to the YMCA of Baton Rouge. 


November 2017 

During November’s Canned Goods Drive, BREA collected canned goods for those in our community.

This December BREA is collecting toy donations for the Bella Bowman Foundation. There are two ways to participate: 
  1. Bring a new, unopened & unwrapped toy to the December meeting at L'auberge.
