Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers Donates $500 to Norfolk Fraternity
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers helps many people who are injured in auto accidents across Hampton Roads, Virginia. Since its founding, the firm has forged a reputation for serving clients as well as the local community.
Recently, the Norfolk-based personal injury firm donated $500 to Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. Norfolk Alumni Chapter. The money went to the fraternity’s Save Our Youth Foundation, whose mission is to improve the lives of youth and adults in South Hampton Roads through philanthropy.
Chief Marketing Officer Cassidy Lewis presented a check to Keith Chapman Sr., the Polemarch (President) of the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. Norfolk Alumni Chapter.
“Our primary focus is to give back to our young men in the community,” Chapman said.
“We truly believe it is better to build boys than to mend men. We are very proud of our young men, and we are expecting some great things to happen,” Chapman added.
Three students attended the check presentation at Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers’ main office in downtown Norfolk. All are members of the fraternity’s Kappa League program. Carter Powell from Oscar Smith High School in Chesapeake, Akye Johnson of Great Bridge High School in Chesapeake, and Eric Bazile of Norview High School in Norfolk have achieved outstanding academic excellence and are continuing their education. Kappa League Director Derrick Paramore also attended the check presentation.
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. is a historically African-American collegiate Greek-letter fraternity. It was founded as Kappa Alpha Nu on January 5, 1911 by ten college students and has helped hundreds of young men in more than a century. The Norfolk Alumni Chapter was the first graduate chapter of the fraternity in Virginia and was chartered on October 4, 1940.
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers has donated to numerous schools and student-focused organizations like the Save Our Youth Foundation in recent years.
In May, the personal injury firm donated $2,000 to Maury High School for the Norfolk school’s Cap and Gown Day.
The firm’s community involvement has a strong emphasis on supporting education and helping young people. Partner Bill O’Mara, a graduate of Indian River High School in Chesapeake, recently returned to the Home of the Braves to make a donation of $2,500 from Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers.
“I’m a proud class of 2000 graduate of Indian River High School,” O’Mara told Principal Naomi Dunbar. “My wife graduated from Indian River High School, my siblings graduated from Indian River High School, and my father substitute teaches here from time to time.”
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers donated $500 to Nansemond River High School in Suffolk earlier this year to buy vital safety equipment that helped keep students and staff safe as they returned to classrooms.
The donation from the firm allowed staff at the school in Suffolk to buy sanitizer dispensers and refills.
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers also recently gave $5,000 (the equivalent of 12,500 meals) to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. The money helped young people receive the food they needed to thrive and progress during the pandemic.
In addition to donations and sponsorships, the Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers Cares campaign includes its annual Focused Driver Scholarship program. The firm awards scholarships to students who address the issue of distracted driving and present ideas to combat it via multi-media presentations.
The donations are part of the effort by attorneys and support staff at the firm to give back to the Tidewater community.
