WINTER CLOTHING DRIVE (Acts 1-6)
The Los Angeles office donated items to the Los Angeles Mission (www.losangelesmission.org).

The firm’s Irvine office donated winter clothing to the Orange County Rescue Mission (www.rescuemission.org). The men, women and children who enter the gates of the Orange County Rescue Mission come from many walks of life and are all wounded in different ways. Some are highly educated, many are survivors of abuse, addiction and abandonment. None of these people ever imagined they’d be homeless and they all need our help. The people who come to us could be your neighbor, your coworker or perhaps a member of your own family. Our goal is to treat each person with respect and dignity. We prayerfully consider how we will implement an Individual Treatment Plan for those who come to us for help. The Orange County Rescue Mission serves the community through the provision of assistance in the areas of guidance, counseling, education, job training, shelter, food, clothing, health care and independent living communities.
Our Riverside office donated clothing to the Path of Life Ministries (www.thepathoflife.com). Path of Life Ministries is a non-profit organization based in the City of Riverside and is committed to serving the greater Riverside homeless population and the poor with the goal to rescue, restore, and rebuild lives in our community. The mission is to help people become productive in life by addressing barriers of dysfunction. One of the ways that they can accomplish this is by partnering with the community through local collaborative partners and support agencies. Some partnerships consist of a one-time donation, while other partners choose to maintain an ongoing relationship with our organization.
