Dear Fellow Paralegals:
South Louisiana has been hit hard with catastrophic flooding this month. A number of members of the Baton Rouge Paralegal Association (BRPA) have been left homeless, or had their personal property damaged or destroyed. They are in need of cleaning supplies, building materials, food and everyday necessities. In an effort to assist our fellow paralegals in need, OPA is coordinating with the BRPA to collect and distribute gift cards to be used by paralegals hit by this flooding as they rebuild.
If you would like to donate gift cards, or a check to purchase gift cards on behalf of OPA, please deliver your donations to MaryAnn Ivie, RP, at Schwabe Williamson and Wyatt, 1211 SW 5th Avenue, 19th Floor, Portland, OR 97204, before September 7, 2016, or contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
BRPA has compiled a list of local outlets which have gift cards that their members can use:
Building Materials/Outdoor Equipment
Academy Sports & Outdoors
Jack in the Box
American Eagle Outfitters
Bed Bath & Beyond
Payless Shoe Source
