Cleco partners with the Northshore Food Bank for ‘Done in a Day’

Nov 3, 2023

Cleco employees volunteered at the Northshore Food Bank in Covington this week as part of the company’s new “Done in a Day” program.

Cleco’s Done in a Day program furthers the company’s partnerships with charitable organizations across its service territory, as well as provides an opportunity for its employees to get involved in the community. Through the program, Cleco works with non-profit organizations who request assistance with a project that can be completed within one day or a few hours.   

Cleco volunteers helped the Northshore Food Bank sort and pack food in boxes, distribute food to recipients, clean vehicles and more.

“Cleco is proud to be able to give back to the Covington community,” said Madeline Ducote, communications representative at Cleco and Done in a Day program coordinator. “The Northshore Food Bank provides those in need with the invaluable gift of food assistance. Cleco is committed to serving the needs of the most vulnerable in our communities.”

“As we move into the holiday season and our food donations nearly triple, we rely heavily on the support of our wonderful community partners like Cleco to provide us with volunteers,” said Sarah Herndon, development associate for the Northshore Food Bank. “Helping us sort and crate these donations, so that we can carry out our mission of feeding our food insecure neighbors is invaluable.”
