In every month’s eNewsletter, we like to include updates on achievements and recognitions our staff have received. (This month, you can read about Dennericka Brooks and Ashley Fretthold’s successes recognized by their law schools.) But often, there are heroes at LAF whose stories go unsung. Some of those heroes are our long-term volunteers.
In April, we celebrate Art Zilberstein’s six year anniversary with LAF. Art has spent more than 3,000 hours giving invaluable help to our clients struggling with employment claims. Without his consistent and capable efforts, our Immigrants and Workers’ Rights practice group could not have served as many clients as it has. This month, we also said goodbye to Kim Skaggs, who has been volunteering nearly 30 hours a week with our Children and Families practice group since 2007. She moves on to other projects in her new home in South Carolina, and we will miss her and her incredible dedication to LAF and our clients. We thank them both for their great work!
As always, on behalf of the staff, the Board, and the clients we serve here at LAF, we thank you too, for your generosity and support. You can continue that support by making a tax-deductible donation right now, or by signing up to be a volunteer.
