Volunteer Now to Help with Obama Initiative: August 18 and 20
To aid the Bar Association in its participation in "Get Help Now PA!" - a program that is part of President and Michelle Obama's "United We Serve" national service initiative - the YLD has adopted August 18 and August 20 to provide help to those searching for agencies that can assist them.
From July 7 through September 11 (from 1pm to 6pm), President and Mrs. Obama are asking legal professionals and bankers to staff offices around the state to help direct individuals with legal or financial issues to agencies that can provide help. Here in Philadelphia, the office will be located at the Earle Mack School of Law at Drexel University, and as Philadelphia is the state's largest city, volunteers are greatly needed.
The YLD has adopted August 18 and August 20 to direct individuals to service agencies that can provide them with the help they need. Volunteers are asked to sign up for one shift - from 1:00-3:30 p.m. or from 3:30-6 p.m. To sign up, or if you have questions, please contact Carey Chopko or Kelly Gastley.
"Get Help Now PA!" is a collaborative effort of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, the Pennsylvania Bankers Association, the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association, the Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers, the Mortgage Bankers Association of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania Association of Mortgage Brokers, the Pennsylvania Financial Services Association, the Office of the First Lady, and Pennsylvania Department of Banking.
