Payer & Associates Supports Thanksgiving on Good Friday Event
Every day, our legal team at Payer & Associates works hard for our clients. We protect their rights and fight for every cent of compensation they are due. Our goal is clear: We want to make a difference in our clients’ lives and help them to get through a difficult, challenging time.
We also strive to make a difference in the South Florida community that we are proud to call our home. That is why we often go beyond our law practice and pitch in as volunteers and sponsors of worthy causes and organizations such as:
- Miami Rescue Mission
- Kristi House
- Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies
- JDRF (Type 1 diabetes research and advocacy)
- American Cancer Society.
As our lawyers and staff members have found, helping others and giving back to the community can be a highly rewarding experience for everyone involved.
Last April, for instance, our law firm joined hundreds of other volunteers in helping out with the Miami Rescue Mission’s annual “Thanksgiving on Good Friday” event. The “block party” was a huge success. It impacted more than 3,000 homeless, poor and hungry men, women and children in our community by providing them with:
- Thanksgiving-style meals
- Easter baskets and activities for children
- Items of clothing
- Haircuts and hygiene supplies
- Foot washing (courtesy of Barry University podiatry students)
- A range of many other services.
“We want homeless and at-risk families to know they are loved and that we are here to help,” Rev. Ronald Brummitt, President of the Miami Rescue Mission, told The Hollywood Gazette. “Through our Good Friday Outreach, many hurting people are shown that they are not forgotten and people really do care.”
At Payer & Associates, we were honored to be a part of the event, and we look forward to participating again at this spring’s “Thanksgiving on Good Friday” block party and as well as other events throughout the year.
If you would like to learn more about the Miami Rescue Mission and the many ways in which you, too, can give back to the community, check out the mission’s website. You can also find a broad range of volunteer opportunities through sites such as Create the Good, Volunteer Match and United Way. If you have difficulty with finding enough time to serve as a volunteer, of course, you can always make a difference by donating funds, clothing or other items.
