This holiday season, we’ll make sure we improve our community by improving access in three areas:
ACCESS TO JUSTICE:
As new and young attorneys starting out or changing circumstances with student loan debt, many falsely believe that they can’t give back. Giving back doesn’t have to be monetarily. Pro Bono time is greatly appreciated.
- What is ‘PRAISE’?
- What services does IELLA provide to the community?
- What is expected of a new volunteer attorney?
- Will training be provided?
- What is the RCBA Elves Program?
- Why was the Elves Program created?
- How do I sign up to become involved in these projects?
ACCESS TO TOYS:
It would be greatly appreciated if attendees bring an unwrapped toy for the RCBA Elves Program. Toys collected will be distributed to underprivileged children in foster care in our community.
ACCESS TO APPETIZERS, SOFT DRINKS & BEER:
Our social will be at Terracina Brewery with beverages and appetizers gratuitously being provided by Scott & Adina Talkov.
