Founding Partners Kirk C. Stange and Paola A. Stange of the St. Louis Divorce Law Firm Stange Law Firm, PC have been announced as co-chairs for the 2020-21 Old Newsboys Fund for Children’s Charities.
Old Newsboys is a non-profit organization that has raised millions of dollars for hundreds of area children’s charities. Since joining the Old Newsboys cause in 2010, Paola has served as a board member and previously served on the Board of Directors as the Treasurer.
Throughout the years, the Stanges have been recognized for charitable contributions and community service to the organization. In 2015, Kirk and Paola Stange were both awarded the Making A Difference Award. In 2016, the Stanges were both awarded the Golden Plate Award by Old Newsboys for their continued support of Old Newsboys.
As a result of Old Newsboys Day in 2019, 150 grants were awarded in February. Charities that receive these grants put them towards purchasing basic needs items, including clothing, medication, school supplies, bedding, food, books, computers, infant needs and holiday gifts.
Fund-raising activities for Old Newsboys occur throughout the year. However, once-a-year, dating back to 1957, money is raised with special editions of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch sold for donations at hundreds of street corners in St. Louis. The project involves many volunteers and contributors. The 64th Annual Old Newsboys Day is scheduled to take place on Nov. 19.
Kirk and Paola Stange founded Stange Law Firm, PC in 2007 with one purpose: to provide men and women with the responsive, diligent and communicative representation they deserve when facing difficult family law matters such as divorce, child custody, child support, paternity and fathers’ rights.
Since then, they have made charitable giving and community service in St. Louis a significant aspect of the firm. Stange Law Firm, PC currently has 21 offices across Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and Oklahoma.
