PHOENIX – AUGUST 04, 2023 -From July 19th through August 5th, Lerner and Rowe will have visited seven cities across the nation in support of the law firm’s annual free backpack giveaways. The main focus of each giveaway is to help support local communities by empowering youth with essential tools that will help them reach educational goals, as well as assisting families by offsetting costs as they prepare for the 2023 – 2024 school year. At the completion of its six-state charitable tour, law firm team members–with help from local law enforcement and charitable organizations–will have handed out 6,000 backpacks stuffed with school supplies in Yuma, AZ, Imperial, CA (near El Centro), Albuquerque, NM, Tucson, AZ, Phoenix, AZ, Merrillville, AZ, and Las Vegas, NV for the total amount of $161,388.
Attorney Kevin Rowe shares more about the law firm’s annual backpack giveaway tour,” With only one backpack giveaway left, 2023 has thus far presented many phenomenal opportunities for our team members to build lasting connections with local community members. As we reflect back on each event, our team shares a genuine appreciation for all those who helped make this year’s backpack giveaways memorable.
That includes all of the gracious and understanding families, volunteers, and law enforcement officers that attended one of our neighborhood events—we couldn’t have done it without you and wouldn’t want to. Cheers to an amazing new school year full of fun, laughter, learning, and friendship.”
