Hurricane Laura Relief
On September 3, 2020, the Cossé Law Firm team had the pleasure of assisting the Louisiana Cajun Navy with Hurricane Laura relief efforts in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The devastation was overwhelming, to say the least.
Along with our partners, we donated five palettes of water as well as bread, canned goods, lunch meat, and chips to help those affected by the storm.
Our team also served almost 1,000 hot meals and spent the day passing out much needed supplies such as diapers, wipes, pet food, and more to the residents of Lake Charles.
We want to thank all of the businesses, including LA Health Solutions, The Moran Group, and Maple Street Patisserie for teaming up with us to make the day possible! Our prayers are with our brothers and sisters in Southwest Louisiana.
Stop The Violence Rally
Each year the Cossé Law Firm joins forces with several New Orleans area churches to host our annual Stop the Violence Rally. In the past this family friendly, free event has been held at Sampson playground in New Orleans East. Free food, music, games, face painting and more are available to all attendees.
The Cossé Law Firm also holds a backpack giveaway at this event. 500 backpacks filled with school supplies are given out on a first come, first serve basis. The mission of the Stop The Violence Rally is to “Reach one, teach one”, teaching under privileged kids that violence is NOT the solution to any problems. Together, we can, we shall, we will, Stop the Violence!
Hogs for the Cause
Hogs for the Cause is a nonprofit that hosts an annual music and BBQ festival in New Orleans to benefit pediatric brain cancer outreach services. Each year over 80 teams compete to be crowned the Louisiana Pork Champion. While teams battle it out on the grill, the crowd is entertained with concerts throughout the day and into the night.
Hogs for the Cause works with both local and national children’s hospitals, including Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, Ochsner Hospital for Children, Duke Children’s Hospital, Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Children’s Hospital, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, and Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, to offer monetary relief to families with children who have brain cancer.
Each year Cossé Law Firm sponsors the Mr. Pigglesworth BBQ team.
A Night For St. Jude
Cossé Law Firm partnered with New Orleans Country Station WNOE 101.1 to host A Night for St. Jude. It was a great concert featuring Jimmie Allen, Russell Dickerson, and Chris Lane. All proceeds from the concert went to St Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Each year, the Cossé Law Firm team partners with local churches, then gathers to fill boxes with Thanksgiving food items and a turkey to donate to members of each congregation.
Additional Community Outreach
Sista Strut The goal of Sista Strut is to heighten awareness about the issues of breast cancer in women of color, as well as provide information on community resources. The organization recognizes the strength of survivors, their family and friends, heightens awareness, promotes early detection, and the search for a cure.
Annual Christmas Fundraiser Each year, the Cossé Law Firm gives monetary donations to seven area churches for Christmas in order for each church to purchase things for their constituents that were most needed (costs for kids, food, gift cards etc.).
