Jones Walker is Secret Santa for 62 Katrina Kids
December 21, 2005

Once again this December, Jones Walker attorneys and staff brought wrapped Christmas gifts for 62 needy children as part of the “Secret Santa” Project.  The project, now in its eighth year, is sponsored by the Louisiana State Bar Association and the Louisiana Bar Foundation's Community Action Committee.  The program provides underprivileged children in the New Orleans metropolitan area with new bikes, sacks of toys and new clothes during the holiday season. "Like so many at Jones Walker, most of the children sponsored in this program, and their families, lost everything in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and now find themselves displaced.  It was especially gratifying for the firm to make the holidays a little brighter for many children affected by Katrina," said litigation associate, Tara Richard, the team leader for Jones Walker.  Jones Walker is proud to support the Secret Santa Project and other organizations that are making a difference in our communities.
