Every year at our annual convention, WSAJ does a community service project in the local area. We are thrilled how many members always show up to help with whatever project we can give them. Trial Lawyers Care (TLC) is where we house our volunteer work, and includes the emergency response pro-bono work we’ve covered previously.
The Daily Record News discussed our volunteering in Cle Elum last week:
On Thursday volunteers with the Washington State Association for Justice worked on the roof, framed in a couple of walls and caulked the floor. They were in the area for the group’s annual convention, held at Suncadia this year. As part of the annual convention, the group participates in a local community service project, board president Todd Nichols said.
Executive director Gerhard Letzing said he was pleased with the turnout and with the organization of Habitat for Humanity coordinators.
“We have about 30 volunteers here,” he said. “I know a good number of them have contributed financially as well. It’s amazing. I’m pleased that this many showed up.”
