Disability Justice continued their “25 Days of Giving” this week by delivering holiday treats and gifts to local organizations, creating care packages for cancer patients in need, and donating to national charities.

Causes supported during December 8 through 15:

Day 16: The Lupus Foundation of America, the only national organization devoted to solving the mystery of lupus. The firm donated money to support research for one of the world’s most unpredictable diseases.

Day 19: Smile Train, an international organization that preforms cleft repair surgeries for children in 85+ counties around the world. The firm donated money to help offset surgery costs for children born with cleft lips and/or palettes.

Day 20: Project HOME, a Philadelphia based housing and learning center helping adults, children, and families break the cycle of homelessness. Attorneys and staff brought cookies, poinsettias, and gift cards to Women of Change, one of their many nationally recognized shelters.
