Adams and Reese partnered with Boys Hope Girls Hope of Greater New Orleans to assist the nonprofit community organization in receiving a $10,000 grant through the Drew Brees Super Service Challenge, a partnership between New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees’ The Brees Dream Foundation and Companies With A Mission.
In total, The Brees Dream Foundation and Companies With A Mission awarded $1 million in prize money to more than 250 charities in the Challenge. There were thousands of entries from across the country, and Adams and Reese’s volunteer day and video entry for Boys Hope Girls Hope was one of the select few Louisiana entries to receive funding. Adams and Reese volunteers helped with several renovations to the BHGH New Orleans home, repainting the home, landscaping, packing hurricane readiness bags, and cleaning the facility.
In March 2013, Adams and Reese sponsored the Race Judicata for Boys Hope Girls Hope of Greater New Orleans and helped the nonprofit raise $18,000 to continue to provide at-risk youth with a stable, loving home, around-the-clock care, opportunities and a promising future. This past year, Adams and Reese also put on a graduation party event for BHGH students.
The Adams and Reese Baton Rouge office also works with the Baton Rouge chapter of Boys Hope Girls Hope to hold quarterly events with the program. Events and programs have included back-to-school drives, a picnic table and outdoor activity project to teach craftsmanship; “Bowl for Hope”; Laser Tag and Luncheon; Pizza and XBox night; and a BHGH Scholars versus Adams and Reese Basketball Tournament.
Boys Hope Girls Hope is a member of the Adams and Reese employee volunteer program, HUGS (Hope, Understanding, Giving, and Support), which was founded in 1988 and has since devoted financial resources and thousands of volunteer hours to offer assistance to those in need. Every year throughout Adams and Reese’s offices in its regional footprint, employees donate time and money to more than 100 community organizations in need.
Boys Hope Girls Hope provides children in need between the ages of 10 and 18 with a stable home, positive parenting, high-quality education, and the support needed to reach their full potential.
