This past Saturday, a group of New Lawyers spent the morning volunteering at Cradles to Crayons in Brighton. For those of you who are not familiar with the organization, Cradles to Crayons provides essential items like clothes, shoes, books and school supplies, for children who are homeless or living in low-income situations with the help of volunteers. During their shift, the BBA volunteers inspected donated books and sorted them into categories based on gender and age group, which helped provide books for 85 kids, ages 12 and under.
This opportunity, along with the recent Franklin Park Clean Up and Food Project events, allows New Lawyers with busy schedules a way to positively impact their local community while meeting other Boston-area attorneys.
If you’re a new attorney interested in socializing and giving back, be sure to check out the New Lawyers Section’s Holiday Extravaganza on December 5th where you can donate items to Toys for Tots. Click here for more information.
