Law Firm’s Employees Select Organizations Dedicated to Helping At-risk Youth
BALTIMORE, MD, November 18, 2011 – Baltimore-based law firm Ober|Kaler announced the recipients of its Community Grants Program today. The annual program awards $35,000 in grants to three nonprofit community organizations dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk youth in the Baltimore and Washington, DC metro areas. Truth Organization for Youth and Beacon House will each receive a $10,000 Ober|Kaler Community Grant. A special $15,000 grant will go to Rebuilding Together Baltimore. In addition to awarding the grant, employees of the firm will volunteer their time to this program. A detailed description of each organization is listed below.
“We are proud to be able to give back to the communities where we live and work. Our firm especially recognizes our obligation to help underprivileged children, since they are among those most in need”, said attorney Joseph Kovars, chair of Ober|Kaler’s Community Grants Committee.
The Ober|Kaler Community Grants Program was established in 2003 on the occasion of the firm’s 100th anniversary. A committee comprised of the firm’s principals, associates and staff members chose this year’s recipients – from approximately 50 applications -- for their specific programs focused on enriching the lives of underprivileged children, improving living standards for lower income families with children, and creating educational opportunities for at-risk youth. The committee based its selection on perceived need, the community served and the impact the grant would have on the selected organization.
