Taylor Porter was proud to participate in the "First Day Helpers" program by Volunteers In Public Schools to treat teachers and staff to breakfast at White Hills Elementary School in Baker. VIPS organizes the First Day Helpers program every year to welcome back teachers and school staff, and as Baton Rouge schools open the 2020-2021 school year, it's a way of showing teachers and staff how much they are appreciated, especially during these challenging COVID-19 times.
Thank you to Culinary Productions for catering the breakfast.
In 2019, Taylor Porter worked with VIPS and White Hills Elementary School for a community outreach project - “Read for Success” - in which the school's fifth graders read five books in the months of September and October, and then visited the law firm for an end of the semester party, and a meet and greet with several of the firm's professionals who discussed their careers, education, and pathway to the workforce. The project was a result of Taylor Porter's continued partnership with VIPS (Volunteers in Public Schools) and the EBRPSS (East Baton Rouge Parish School System).
Through the BUILD program, Taylor Porter provides assistance to several diverse community and nonprofits year-round, thereby affecting diverse segments of the community in a most positive and rewarding way. In 2017, Taylor Porter’s Diversity Committee launched a firm-wide BUILD (Building Unity, Inclusion, & Legal Diversity) Community Outreach Program. The program was implemented by the Taylor Porter Diversity Committee and designed to further bridge and support the Firm’s diversity efforts, combined with its more than 108 years of traditional community outreach and volunteer work. Whether serving on the boards of directors of nonprofit organizations or making contributions to worthwhile causes, Taylor Porter’s attorneys and staff are actively involved in the community.
