Giving Back Is Important to Them, and to You

2,000 Empty Bins Being Passed Out to Volunteers
This year, just as our entire staff has for the last three years, our office is joining with Fairhaven Church in its annual Christmas Gift campaign.

This will be the fourth year that the local community has followed Fairhaven Church's lead to donate new clothes and supplies to under-served students and families in the region. In the past, 1,500 bins have been filled each year to help the needy in the region with clothing and personal supplies and needs.

Roughly 1 out of every 5 families in the area struggle each day to meet basic human needs, a number that is about average for Ohio. In fact, about 2,000,000 Ohioans live below the federal poverty level and Ohio exceeds the national poverty average. In the last decade poverty in Ohio increased a staggering 58%. Worse yet, roughly 61,000 veterans live in poverty.

It's time we all helped those in need.
You can help. While unemployment has decreased, the economy is much better overall, and even gasoline prices are remarkably lower than they have been since 2008, people still need help. And now is the time to pitch in.

This year, there will be 2,000 bins and Burdge Law Office and our entire staff are proud to be doing our part to help families in the Centerville, Franklin, Kettering, Northmont and Springboro school districts.

So the next time you see a chance to help someone, stop and do it. You'll be surprised how much better you will feel about yourself and your community too.
