Heroes in Health 11/01/12
Attorney Rachal Rojas writes:
This Halloween, I had the opportunity to spend time with children at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital at their Halloween Carnival through the Heroes in Health Program. There were games, prizes and activities such as face painting and cookie and pumpkin decorating. The children came in costume and had a great time.
Many of our clients here at Matthews & Associates, unfortunately, are children. These children often spend the first years of their lives in and out of hospitals for injuries sustained by no fault of their own.
I was happy to be able to spend time with the children at Children’s Memorial Hermann, to help bring a sense of normalcy and cheer to their day, even if it was for just a short while. (Heroes in Health thank you.)
Adopt an Angel 11/01/12
For the past five years, we have coordinated with the Houston Young Lawyers Association (HYLA) in their Adopt an Angel program which collects gifts from the wish lists of underprivileged children. Sindy Santiago of Matthews & Associates works with HYLA to organize volunteers to “adopt” boys and girls and give them presents of their choosing.
In the past years, volunteers from Matthews & Associates have also assisted with distributing toys to the kids’ local schools. We have also helped put together “Wish Packages” for the children. We also distribute completed Wish Packages among other law firms which have also volunteered to Adopt an Angel.
It is very rewarding to see the smiles on the children’s faces during the holiday season. They are always so grateful. If you would like to help us help the children, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
