The Adams and Reese Baton Rouge office donated $800 worth of school supplies, new backpacks and other materials to help nine scholars through the Boys Hope Girls Hope Baton Rouge program prepare for the beginning of their school year. The scholars are all attending catholic schools in the Baton Rouge Diocese and will be entering grades 6-12.
The donations were funded through the Adams and Reese HUGS (Hope, Understanding, Giving and Support) community service program.
Adams and Reese works with the Baton Rouge chapter of Boys Hope Girls Hope to hold quarterly events with the program. On June 15, Adams and Reese attorneys and staff volunteered at the Boys Hope Girls Hope of Baton Rouge home on Calais Avenue for a “Picnic Table Project” to build picnic tables with several of the scholars to use for their summer outdoor activities and also teach them some craftsmanship on how to assemble picnic tables.
Other events in the past have included the “Bowl for Hope” event at Circle Bowl; Laser Tag and Luncheon; and Pizza and XBox night. This year also was the inaugural BHGH Scholars versus Adams and Reese Basketball Tournament, where several attorneys, staff members and family members, met up on the basketball court for a friendly, yet competitive basketball tournament.
Boys Hope Girls Hope helps academically capable and motivated children-in-need to meet their full potential and become men and women for others by providing value-centered, family-like homes, opportunities and education through college.
