Update: OCWLA’s clothing drive for Suits for a Cause is featured in the news! See press here: Orange County’s legal community joins together for “Suits for a Cause” clothing drive.
WHW (formerly Women Helping Women) is set to kick off its Suits for a Cause clothing drive! For the eighth consecutive year, Suits for a Cause will unite the Southern California legal community for a good cause. Law firms and legal businesses will join together in March to hold simultaneous clothing drives supporting WHW, an Orange County non-profit that provides, at no charge, comprehensive employment support services to empower the unemployed and underemployed in our community to get and keep a good job. This year, Ron Brand is chairing the event, and the Suits for a Cause lunch is sponsored by Skorheim Accounting.
All Southern California law firms and legal businesses (from solo practitioners to international law firms) are invited to participate in Suits for a Cause 2018. To participate in Suits for a Cause 2018, firms/businesses simply need to organize a clothing drive by emailing a flyer to their firm about Suits for a Cause 2018, and by designating a room for clothing drop-offs. WHW will provide donation receipts to all participating firms. Email Laurie Rowen ([email protected]) to sign up to participate.
All participants along with the sponsors will be listed on WHW’s website, and will be invited to a complimentary lunch that will be hosted at the Orange County Bar Association on Thursday, March 29th from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM. The Honorable Eileen C. Moore, Associate Justice of the California Court of Appeal, will speak about gender bias, including societal issues, legal actions brought by women during the Women’s Liberation Movement, and violence against women. This program will provide one (1) hour of Elimination of Bias MCLE credit.
Montage Legal Group is again honored to serve as a sponsor of Suits for a Cause!
