To all those who took the time to donate to The Pro Bono Project on GiveNOLA Day, THANK YOU from the Board, Staff, Volunteers and the Children whom we serve. Your GiveNOLA Day gifts support The Project in providing civil legal services for the growing number of children in our community who need a voice in the civil justice system.
Funds are still being tallied and we'll have our final amount in the next few days. As of midnight, 86 gifts totaling more than $11,000 were received. We'll have a final tally in a few days and will be posting the winners of the Opening Doors Challenge, as well.
Again, our thanks to all who took the time to give on GiveNOLA Day!
