Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers’ Donation Funds COVID Safety Supplies for Suffolk School
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted schooling across the United States, and Hampton Roads is no exception. Recently, Norfolk-based law firm Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers donated $500 to Nansemond River High School to purchase vital safety equipment that will help keep students and staff safe as they return to classrooms. The donation from the personal injury law firm will allow staff at the school in Suffolk to buy vital sanitizer dispensers and refills.
Cassidy Lewis, Chief Marketing Officer of Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers, made the donation to Principal Dr. Shawn Green and Assistant Principal Tina Paul. “During the pandemic, we would work with teachers coming into the building and students coming into the building,” Green said. “We wanted to make sure that students remained safe while they were here on campus.
“With this donation, we will be able to buy additional hand sanitizer stations as well as refills so that when students, teachers, and staff are on campus we are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe.”
Paul praised teachers at Nansemond River High School who have been working hard during the pandemic and sharing their knowledge virtually. “Our faculty and staff have been working extremely hard to take what they do in the classroom, face-to-face, and convert it to a virtual format.
“Our kids have [also] been great in regards to them adapting to this new, virtual format. Everybody seems to be finding their way with virtual and communicating and just working really hard. We are proud of our faculty as well as our students,” Paul added.
Nansemond River High School has a student body of about 1,700 and has educated young people from Suffolk for three decades. PPE and sanitizers will remain an important part of these and other students’ daily routines as young people return to schools in Hampton Roads over the next few months. Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers is proud to play a part in helping students return to a school that is equipped to keep them safe.
In its ongoing mission to support education and uplift students in the Tidewater community, the firm also recently donated $5,000 (the equivalent of 12,500 meals) to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. The donation will help young people receive the food they need to thrive and progress during the pandemic.
Numerous studies have found the pandemic has disproportionately impacted younger people and affected their mental health. As well as helping youth during the pandemic, Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers assists students by offering $2,000 awards via our Focused Driver Scholarship.
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers helps people injured in car, truck, and motorcycle accidents in the Hampton Roads community and beyond. Most of the firm’s attorneys grew up in Hampton Roads and are deeply rooted in the community. The Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers Cares initiative reflects that along with the firm’s commitment to giving back to those in need. For more details, please call us today.
