Acadiana is rife with non-profit organizations that are perpetually in need of sponsors and donors.

Your business--your brand--can make a mark on the community by establishing a community partnership with a local non-profit organization.

Russo said not only is aligning your business with a local non-profit a way to give back to back to the community, but it also make your business more visible.
