Community Projects

The Pima County Bar Association supports the following community endeavors & organizations:

 

Lawyers for Literacy

Since 1991, the Pima County Bar Association and the Young Lawyers Division has sponsored the Lawyers for Literacy ("LFL") program at local elementary schools.  LFL volunteer tutors regularly meet individually with 4th and 5th grade students who read below grade level and provide valuable assistance.    Please see above LFL link for information on how to participate.

 

Legal Community Against Hunger (LCAH)

Every year, during the holidays, lawyers, paralegals, legal assistants and others in the legal community join together as the Legal Community Against Hunger (LCAH) to support the important, vital work of the Tucson Community Food Bank.  Since 1988, LCAH has helped the Food Bank relieve hunger in Tucson neighborhoods by raising over $300,000 to assist with their efforts.

 

 

Southern Arizona Legal Aid, Inc.

Since 2009, the Pima County Bar Association has held its Annual Skyline Affair -- a fundraising event to benefit the important work and legal services of Southern Arizona Legal Aid, Inc.

 

Volunteer Lawyers Program (VLP)

 

Young Lawyers Division (YLD) Holiday Party

Every year, the Young Lawyers Divisions (“YLD”) of the Pima County Bar Association and the State Bar of Arizona join forces to support St. Nicholas of Myra Adoption Center, a local non-profit (and program of Catholic Community Services) that cares for children in foster and group homes who have been victims of abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment.  YLD helps by throwing a Holiday Party for the children who may not otherwise get to celebrate, providing them with one special day when they can leave behind their worries and just be a kid.  Both cash and in-kind donations, along with various prizes, are collected from individuals and local businesses, allowing for children's gifts, food, and lots of fun during the celebration (see above YLD Holiday Party link for more details).
