Marler Law Partners Hosts Online Fundraiser For First Responders Children’s Foundation
FARMINGTON, MO: As the Stay-at-Home Orders enters its second month for many in the region, Marler Law Partners, a local Farmington law firm, was looking for another way to support the community during the COVID19 Crisis.
Back in March, Marler Law Partners delivered groceries and supplies to neighbors in need who lived in Farmington and surrounding areas. This month, they have decided to host an online fundraiser for First Responders Children’s Foundation.
The Foundation’s mission is to provide financial support to both children who have lost a parent in the line of duty, as well as families enduring significant financial hardships due to tragic circumstances.
Right now, the Foundation is fundraising to provide hotel rooms to those working the front line of the COVID –19 crisis so they can self-quarantine to keep their families safe, materials for health professionals and grants for first responder families.
Join Marler Law Partners in donating via the fundraiser website Marler.GiveSmart.com or by texting MARLER to 76278 now through the end of June.
MLP Managing Partner Sara Marler reflected on the grocery delivery project’s impact. “We were overwhelmed with the responses. We started out thinking we would be able to deliver to 20 families and ended up delivering to 36 that first weekend. We still had more requests we weren’t able to fulfill and ended up doing Walmart deliveries in April to those who we could reach.”
Bobbi Janzekovich, was one of the individuals who reached out to Marler Law Partners in March. “I will never forget the kindness [Marler Law Partners] showed me. Thank you for everything. [They are] doing God’s work. ‘When I was hungry you fed me, When I was cold you clothed me!’,” Bobbi commented on the company’s Facebook page.
In April, Marler became aware of the efforts of the First Responders Children’s Foundation through a friend. They wanted to help those on the front lines fighting COVID and this organization’s mission aligned with that goal.
“The more I read online about what healthcare workers and their families were going through during this time, I knew I had to do something to help.”
