UNITED WAY PROJECT CONNECT – Oct. 19, 2018

This year’s Project Connect is set for Oct. 19, 2018, at Island Grove Regional Park. Attorneys are needed to assist at the Ask-An-Attorney Clinic which is set to begin at noon and go till 5 p.m. Lunch is served by United Way as a Thank You for all of the volunteers.  Doors open to the participants at noon and close at 4 p.m. to new arrivals, but the folks arriving later are allowed to walk through all of the stations so it’s likely closer to 5 p.m. that the event concludes.

Last year we assisted 107 attendees with their legal questions.  If you are available to assist all afternoon or just for a couple hours, please email Vickie to get signed up: vtaylor.wcls@gmail.com.

ATTORNEYS NEEDED FOR REFERRAL LIST
WELD COUNTY LEGAL SERVICES has an ongoing need to add attorneys to its referral list for Reduced Fees/ Pro Bono services. If you have a calling to assist Weld County residents of modest means, kindly send me an email indicating your interest as well as a note about your legal specialty. Please also note if you are willing to assist folks with pro bono matters, reduced fees, Unbundled Services matters, or all three.
 
Additionally, please consider encouraging associate attorneys at your firm to volunteer for Weld County Legal Services. This is a great community service and a great way to help out our indigent residents and build confidence for our fresher attorneys.
 
As always, your assistance is greatly appreciated, and we could not continue this program without the volunteer efforts of our local legal community. Please email Vickie if you would like to be added to the referral list.
