Every year, many children start the new school year without the most basic supplies needed to succeed in the classroom.
In an effort to help children in Richland, Crawford, and Ashland Counties, the law firm of Rinehardt Injury Attorneys hosted its first annual school supply drive for Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Central Ohio.
The effort was part of the Injury Board Day of Action, a nationwide community outreach event. The IB Day of Action brings together more than 100 plaintiffs’ lawyer firms from across the country, all working for the same cause on the same day.
Rinehardt Injury Attorneys is dedicated to giving back to the local community and helping those in need.
The firm provided 48 backpacks and school supplies and collected donations from members of the community. At the end of the drive, the firm was able to donate 55 backpacks filled with supplies! Big Brothers Big Sisters distributed the backpacks to families in need.
The Rinehardt Injury Attorneys is passionate about giving back to our community. This year, we are the proud sponsor of the Mansfield Police D.A.R.E. program.
The D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program is an internationally recognized program created by the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Unified School District.
D.A.R.E. provides students from kindergarten through high school with the skills necessary to recognize and resist pressures to experiment with drugs and to avoid gangs and violence. Lessons emphasize self-esteem, decision making, interpersonal communications skills, the consequences of drug abuse, conflict resolution and positive alternatives to substance abuse.
The most important facet of D.A.R.E. is the use of specially trained police officers to deliver the curriculum within the schools. Police Officers are accepted as authorities on drug abuse, as they deal with drug abuse and its consequences on a daily basis.
