BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Baton Rouge General Employee Care Centers at Bluebonnet and Mid City have opened to receive donations for caregivers and healthcare workers in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.
Both centers will be open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting Sept. 3.

Now, many of them are facing an added layer of stress with the storm. The least we can do is pitch in and support them while they have given so much over the last year.”
