Dear Bar Association Members:
We are proud to remind all lawyers that the Bar Association of Lehigh County has conducted a Holiday Assistance Program for needy individuals in the Lehigh Valley for the past 20 years, resulting in total contributions over $174,000.
This has been another difficult year for great charitable organizations that do so much in our communities and surrounding areas. Considering the continued economic environment and the added pressure and strains that recent weather events have caused, these organizations need support now more than ever. To assist these organizations in their efforts, we are asking each and every lawyer to make a contribution of at least $10 or more, to help support those in our local community at this time of holiday giving and sharing.
The program is administered through the Bar Association of Lehigh County Fund of the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation. All gifts to the Fund for the Holiday Assistance Program are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. The Foundation will acknowledge all gifts for tax purposes.
As in years past, any lawyer contributing $100 or more and all firms contributing $100 or more per attorney will be given special recognition. We will continue to recognize all contributors of any amount in the ‘Lehigh Law Journal’ and on the Bar Association website. The Journal is distributed to approximately 800+ attorneys, judges, law firms, district justices, law libraries, legal support businesses, several bankers and accountants and statewide to other bar associations.
Past years’ contributions went to the Crime Victims Council of the Lehigh Valley, Dream Come True, North Penn Legal Services, Lehigh County Conference of Churches, Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, the Allentown Rescue Mission, the Lehigh County Conference of Churches’ Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Minsi Trail Boy Scouts, Miracle League of the Lehigh Valley, Easter Seals, Second Harvest Food Bank of Lehigh Valley & Northeastern PA, and many more.
