Adams and Reese Houston Office Raises $2,500 to Send Kids to Summer Camp

5/16/2013

The Adams and Reese Houston office raised $2,500 during the month of April for the Camp for All organization, which is a camp working in partnership with other nonprofits to enrich the lives of children and adults with challenging illnesses or special needs and their families throughout the year. The fundraising amount enables 10 kids to attend the program this summer.

Camp for All hosts campers with cancer, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, severe burns, sickle cell, cerebral palsy, cognitive challenges, cardiac issues, spinal cord injuries, PKU, neurofibromatosis, HIV, dermatological issues, and so much more. Most of the children and adults come from the greater Houston area and southeast Texas, but several of the camps draw nationally and internationally.

Adams and Reese employee Sharon Hall organized the event for the firm. In order to raise the $2,500, Adams and Reese had Jeans Day Fridays; an Appetizer/Dessert Cook-off Cocktail Party; and raffled off a Goodie Basket donated by Magna Legal Services.

Camp for All is one of the more than 100 organizations that the Adams and Reese employee volunteer program, also known as HUGS (Hope, Understanding, Giving and Support), donates thousands of hours and untold dollars to offer communities “hands on” activities and assistance to those less fortunate. Whether in the form of special events or participation in agency-sponsored fundraisers, Adams and Reese employees and attorneys are known throughout the region and the nation for their community action.
