Fishman Haygood Makes Holiday Giving a Priority

During this season of giving, Fishman Haygood staff and attorneys raised funds for Community Academies of New Orleans (CANO), a charter school management organization. Annually, CANO gives gifts to each of its lower elementary school students at Foundation Preparatory Academy, Esperanza Academy, and Lafayette Academy.

Together, the Fishman Haygood team pooled $3,175 in donations. This generosity was matched by the firm for a total gift of $6,350.

CANO’s initiative not only provides families with relief from the pressures of the season’s demands but also serves as a teachable moment; students spend time learning about different traditions celebrated across the globe.

For more than a decade, Fishman Haygood has supported the community during the holidays. Participation with this organization is made even more special as Margo Phelps, wife of Esmond Phelps, is a CANO board member. Mr. Phelps serves as counsel to the firm and was among its original founders when Correro Fishman Haygood Phelps Weiss Walmsley & Casteix was formed in 1996.

Throughout the year, Fishman Haygood attorneys also lend their expertise to causes, as well as to local and national organizations. Click here to learn more about our work in the community.
