FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

PLAQUEMINES PARISH WELCOMES NEW FACILITY of 75-YEAR-OLD INSTEP CREDIT UNION

Plaquemines Parish, LA- Plaquemines Parish had a grand opening today welcoming the new facility of INSTEP Credit Union after this credit union existed for more than 60 years in the parish and all the support it gave to the parish. Lincoln Builders Superintendent and General Contractor Keith Keller completed a groundbreaking 6,300-square-foot facility that cost over $2 million to construct at 8640 Hwy. 23 in Belle Chasse.

Furthermore, INSTEP Credit Union have changed their name three times. In 1957, NAS Credit Union was relocated from New Orleans Lakefront to the Naval Air Station Base in Belle Chasse. By 2001, the credit union changed its name from NAS to NAS JRB to be more aligned with the base name.

All in all, Plaquemines Parish President Keith Hinkley wants to affirm his thanks to INSTEP Credit Union for the continual support that it is giving towards the parish. As he further emphasizes, he says that it is not only including “the business community,” but it is also “including the residents.”
