Window World of New Orleans recently donated $70,000 to Son of a Saint to support their Capital Campaign and Annual Gala. The donation continues Window World’s philanthropic efforts in the region and supports Son of a Saint’s mission to transform the lives of fatherless boys through mentorship, emotional support, development of life skills, exposure to constructive experiences and formation of positive, lasting peer-to-peer relationships.
“We are thrilled to partner with Son of a Saint on the life changing work they perform for New Orleans’ youth,” said Jerell Thomas, president of Window World of New Orleans. “As a company, we believe supporting the region in which we work is critical to building a stronger and more vibrant community.”
The donation to Son of a Saint’s Capital Campaign will be used to support the renovation of Son of a Saint’s permanent headquarters, located in the heart of Bayou St. John at 2803 St. Philip Street. This 16,000 square foot facility features a technology hub, culinary center, fitness center, among other key elements, and will serve as a hub for Son of a Saint’s comprehensive programming, and a safe haven for its mentees.
Son of a Saint’s Annual Gala is the organization’s signature fundraising event that brings together supporters, partners, friends, and community leaders for a night of mission-driven fun and celebration. The event raises critical support for Son of a Saint’s comprehensive programming including academic support, case management, enrichment, mentorship, mental health support, and travel.
