BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – The Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center has more money to assist families across the Baton Rouge area thanks to a big donation from a local law firm.
Robert Lucky, of The Lucky Law Firm, presented BRCAC Board of Directors President Chelsea Harris with a $5,000 check, Thursday, after pledging to donate for every medal Team USA Olympians brought home from the Tokyo Olympics.
“During this pandemic they’ve been busy working with the children who have seen unimaginable, tragic events” said Lucky. “They can bring them in here and they address the issues and the things that those children have seen… they address the issue today so they don’t become a statistic tomorrow” he said.
The Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center’s mission is to set children on a solid path to healing and justice by providing trauma-informed, efficient and coordinated child-focused services in the aftermath of abuse and violent crime.
“This contribution makes a difference in the lives of families and the children” said Harris. “The family and children that come here do not have to pay for the services they receive. The services include children’s advocacy, forensic interviews and mental health services” she said.
Team USA brought home 113 medals; 39 gold, 41 silver and 33 bronze. This is the second year Lucky has pledged to donate money to a local charity connected to the Olympic games.
