During March 2009 the Community Center of St Bernard is running a
candy bar fundraiser. Proceeds from the candy bar sales will be used
to pay for a CPA financial audit so that the Community Center will be
eligible to apply for federal grants. "The audit will cost $5,500,"
explained Community Center Director Iray Nabatoff, "but it's very
important. Last year the Community Center gave out 20,000 new
Scholastic children’s books to local kids. After Hurricane Gustav, we
distributed more than 3,700 Emergency Food Stamps applications. From
January – December 2008, we served 7,684 free hot meals to area
More than 680 children received toys at our 2008 Toy GiveAway last
December 21. And during 2008, our Food Pantry distributed 245,787 lbs
of food to 2,230 low-income families."

"We're very proud of what we've been able to do so far," adds Mr
Nabatoff. "But offering these services to St Bernard residents costs
money. We're asking the community to support us by buying candy bars
to help us reach our fundraising goal so that we can apply for the
grants we need to keep helping families here in St Bernard."

The candy bars cost $1 each and there are 4 varieties to choose from:
Caramel, Roast Almond, Crispy Rice, and Chocolate Truffle. Candy bars
are on sale in the office at the Community Center of St Bernard, 1107
LeBeau St, Arabi. Business owners and groups who would like to order
bulk amounts to sell at their locations should contact the Community
Center at 504.281.2512 or For more information, please
