At the close of our 95th anniversary year, we turn our attention, once again, to our community. Henderson Franklin’s attorneys, staff, friends and family volunteered to help two organizations this holiday season, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast and Meals for Hope, Holidays Without Hunger in Naples.

Lee County: Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast

On Saturday, December 7, 2019, the firm hosted a party for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast at the IMAG History & Science Center in Fort Myers. Nearly 50 “Littles” had a night at the museum with arts & crafts, delicious pizza, scrumptious cupcakes and an early visit from Santa and his helpers.

Since 1968, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been helping change kids’ perspectives and giving them the opportunity to reach their potential. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast provides one-to-one mentoring relationships to children ages 6-18 years old throughout the Gulf Coast of Florida in Sarasota, Manatee, DeSoto, Highlands, Hardee, Charlotte, Lee, Hendry and Collier counties.
