Community Relations Volunteer Activities

Our aim this term, is to provide our members with a variety of opportunities to give back to our community. We have come up with a tentative calendar of activities for the term. Some may require donations, some might require time and some require both. The idea is to help out! There is power in numbers and with all of us together, we  know we can make a real difference. Please contact Rachel Scott or Martha Woods  to volunteer for any of these activities. We are only  looking for 1-3 volunteers each month for those activities that require volunteers. Volunteers will need to collaborate for the monthly report.. If there is a date we need to include on this calendar, please contact us. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.

About El Paso Lawyers for Patriots

El Paso Lawyers for Patriots is a network of local lawyers assisting veterans, active duty military, and their families who otherwise could not afford or don’t have access to legal services. Services are offered through the El Paso Bar Association, other local bars, veterans service providers, and similar entities.
