King & Jurgens Announces Two-Year Partnership with Nonprofit Son of a SaintNovember 1, 2018
Son of a Saint, a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring mentorship and enhancing the lives of fatherless boys, has partnered with King & Jurgens law firm to accept a sponsorship commitment of $50,000 over a two-year period. The financial contribution will directly support Son of a Saint's core mission. On Monday, October 22, King & Jurgens presented this year's check for $25,000 to the team at Son of a Saint.
In addition to the financial contribution, the attorneys and staff of King & Jurgens have expressed their commitment to engaging with Son of a Saint through volunteerism at select activities, as well as hosting events at the law firm's New Orleans office.
"I believe the early intervention of Son of a Saint is addressing a meaningful cause in a holistic and thoughtful manner," says Henry King, Manager and co-founder of the firm. "Our firm is proud to play a part in providing hope and opportunity to some of New Orleans' most vulnerable young men."
"We're excited to partner with King & Jurgens and to receive this generous donation in support of our mission to uplift fatherless young men in our community," says Son of a Saint Founder Bivian "Sonny" Lee III. "As an organization, Son of a Saint always aims to instill the principles of service and community goodwill amongst our mentees. This is the perfect example of a well-rounded partnership that will bring key support to our team and tangible results to our network."
As Son of a Saint continues the crucial work of mentoring and enhancing the lives of more than 80 fatherless young men in the New Orleans area, its highest mentee enrollment numbers to date, the organization is poised to add more programming, more mentors and more boys to its cause. Son of a Saint holistically sponsors youths between the ages of 10 and 18, providing them with mentorship, education, mental health services and travel experiences, as well as internship and service learning opportunities. The organization has increased its class of mentees from 10 boys in its inaugural year to its current slate of 80 young men. That constitutes an eightfold increase in just 7 years.
