Nossaman LLP participated in several pro bono and volunteer events throughout its California offices in remembrance of the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
George Joseph, managing partner at Nossaman’s Irvine office, said as part of the firm’s “Do Good Things” charitable program they collaborated with the nonprofit organization MyGoodDeed, a pro bono client the firm has helped over the last 10 years to make Sept. 11 a national day of service and remembrance.
“We are happy to be working with them again this year,” Joseph said.
In Los Angeles, Nossaman volunteers worked at Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center in Echo Park. In Irvine, volunteers worked at Second Harvest Food Bank, and in San Diego, they went to Fallbrook Food Pantry.
In San Francisco, Nossaman partnered with Kids in Need of Defense, a nonprofit that aims to ensure no child appears in court without high quality legal representation. Nossaman and KIND helped organize hygiene kits and backpacks for thousands of children who have been separated from their families.
In Sacramento, Nossaman joined the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services to help sort, bag and box fresh produce.
“We are extremely grateful for all of the pro bono work Nossaman has done for us over the years,” said David Paine, co-founder and president of MyGoodDeed and 9/11 Day. “They have never wavered in their support and have consistently offered us critical legal and public policy assistance that helps further our goal of honoring the anniversary of 9/11 through service and good deeds.”
