The Arlene and Joseph Meraux Charitable Foundation is a private 501(c) (3) non-proft organization dedicated to a vibrant St. Bernard Parish. Founded by Arlene Meraux and presided over by her niece, Rita Gue, the Foundation and its board of directors are implementing a strategy that leverages Meraux Family landholdings to realize Arlene’s vision for her beloved home. Building upon St. Bernard’s strong sense of community, quality of life, and unique culture, the Foundation seeks to bring about lasting, positive change in the Parish.
With Ragusa’s help, the Meraux Foundation has articulated its mission and crafted a narrative to describe its good work, strengthening its position in the community. Ragusa’s services include messaging, scripting, content development, media relations, newsletter development, website design, community relations, partnership coordination, and strategic counsel.
The Meraux Foundation works towards the overall betterment and wellness of St. Bernard Parish by striving for higher quality of life, senior care, education, environmental awareness, and economic development, and cultural conservation within the community.
