In Jacob’s Shoes: A New Pair of Shoes to a Child in Need for Every Referral Received
We're so proud to be partnered with a local grassroots charity, In Jacob's Shoes, for over a year now! For every referral received we donate one pair of shoes to a child in need. We even keep track of them in our monthly newsletter.
Here’s what we shared in December 2020:
Because of you, we were able to buy 101 new pairs of shoes for children in South Florida in 2020.
You might have noticed that each month's newsletter includes a tally on the right hand side of the cover. The total number is the number of shoes we've donated since December 2017 when we started, and we try to highlight the names of people who sent referrals our way.
Back in December 2017, Rossen Law Firm began donating a pair of shoes to a child in need for every referral our office received. This year, we got 101 referrals sent to our office from our community and network - which includes you if you're reading this - so that means more than 100 new pairs of shoes for In Jacob's Shoes.
We keep track of the number of referrals whether the potential client hires or not.
You can always feel good sending referrals our way, knowing that not only will we take the best care of your referral (we know it is an act of trust every time), but also knowing you're helping to do some good in the South Florida Community.
Thank you for trusting us with your friends, family members and love ones AND for helping us make a difference in South Florida.
