Drop-off backpacks and school supplies at the Bar until 8/22!
It is back to school time and the Barristers Pro Bono Committee is holding a Backpack Drive to benefit the Children's Law Center of California (CLC)!
Abused and neglected children in foster care move from one placement to another an average of four times. Many of these children do not have any bags to carry their textbooks to and from school, and are forced to carry their belongings in tattered plastic bags. Make a difference in the life of one of these foster children with a simple donation.
BHBA members can drop off new backpacks and school supplies such as pens, pencils, crayons and notebooks to the BHBA headquarters for donation to CLC, any time prior to August 22, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. If you plan to be at the Bar for a program or meeting, that is the perfect opportunity to bring in a donation!
Children's Law Center of California is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. For more information please visit www.clccal.org. If you would like a receipt for your backpack donation, please include your name, address and the value of your donation along with your backpack.
