BancorpSouth joins Habitat efforts
“I spoke with Todd Werner at BancorpSouth, and he said they would like to get involved with Habitat for Humanity,” Bordelon said. “Since (Daily) Leader publisher Rick Hohlt had come up with this idea as a way for the newspaper to help raise money for Habitat, we figured the bank could do the same thing and they agreed.”
The Daily Leader’s campaign, which will run through March, has generated about $3,500 in local contributions. When matched dollar-for-dollar, that’s about $7,000 in Habitat’s coffers to date.
