OPELOUSAS, La.(Giles Auto. PR) – Giles Automotive started the Giles Gives Back to St. Landry Churches Campaign on Friday, April 12, 2019, with a goal to raise $50,000 in 30 days from community donations which Giles Automotive will match for a total of $100,000. The collected funds will go to assist the three churches recently burned in St. Landry Parish. As of now the campaign has raised just over $33,000, and with about two weeks left to donate to the effort, community support is strongly appreciated and encouraged in order to meet the $50,000 goal.

Mr. Bob Giles, Giles Automotive Dealer Principal and community philanthropist, had this to say, “I am so thankful to be a part of a community that comes together to support those in need. Giles Gives Back to St. Landry Churches has been very fortunate to receive all the donations collected so far, and we want to make it to that $50,000 goal. We urge those that haven’t to make a donation and give back to the churches that have given so much to this community for decades.”

Donations can be made to Giles Gives Back to St. Landry Churches through any IBERIABANK. All the funds collected will be matched by Giles Automotive and distributed evenly between St. Mary’s Baptist Church, Greater Union Baptist Church, and Mount Pleasant Baptist Church.
