MARLER LAW PARTNERS GIVES BACK DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON
MLP Gives Back To Youth Organization & Donates Holiday Party Budget To Families In Need
Farmington, MO: Helping Good People Through Hard Times is Marler Law Partners core value, and throughout the year, Marler Law Partners focuses on helping those in need. In this season of holiday giving, MLP selected two ways to give back to the community.
Earlier this month, on Giving Tuesday, they donated $1,200 to Rocky Creek Youth Ranch, a youth facility that helps over 30 young men in St. Francois County.
“Rocky Creek Youth Ranch is a great organization,” MLP Managing Partner Sara Marler said. “It broke my heart talking to the therapist who was organizing Christmas for all their kids on a shoestring budget. I decided Marler Law Partners could help make their Christmas a little brighter.”
But the giving didn’t stop on Giving Tuesday! Instead of doing their annual Christmas party, MLP decided to put that money to better use and donate that budget to four families in need in Iron County.
The staff ordered pizza and had a wrapping party last week so that the families would have clothes, shoes, blankets, presents as well as other necessities like clean water and gas for generators to stay warm. Marler Law Partners staff, along with Judge Scott Schrum, had the opportunity to meet with the families and deliver the gifts at South Iron Elementary School on Thursday, December 19, 2019.
“It was touching to meet with the families and hear their stories,” Partner Ramona Gau said. “One of the moms was so grateful that her kids will get Christmas this year. She might be surprised at how much there is in our haul for her, too.”
