Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 20, 2007
In spite of the busy holidays, the staff of personal injury law firm Bisnar Chase finds time to support two charity organizations in Orange County, Share Ourselves (SOS) and The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. SOS helps families who are homeless, the working poor or living at or near the poverty level. Toys for Tots provides new, unwrapped toys for children who come from disadvantaged families.
For SOS, staff members have adopted three nine-member families and have purchased holiday gifts for all. Then a few days before SOS needs the donations, the staff had a gift-wrapping party during their work day.
Bisnar Chase staff also manage the collection boxes for the Toys for Tots drive in their building, with the Orange County Bar Association serving as local coordinator for the Marines. The staff place three 55-gallon boxes throughout their office building and invite the other tenants of their building to donate new, unwrapped toys.
"My colleagues and I really enjoy making the holidays brighter for those less fortunate," says Danielle Olson, executive assistant at Bisnar Chase. "Supporting charity organizations like Share Ourselves and Toys for Tots by buying holiday gifts makes the holidays meaningful. And working at a place where we, ourselves, feel appreciated and respected, it's easy to give back."
Supporting a charity during the holidays is entirely a staff-driven effort, reflecting well on the firm's motto, "People over profits." They have been doing this for five years.
For more than 35 years SOS has provided a safety net to those needing emergency assistance, for the homeless, working poor and those living at or near the poverty level.
