Walk in Memory of Jonathan & The Joy of the Friendship Circle

 
Jonathan was a participant of the Friends at Home program. Friends at Home creates a fun opportunity for teenage volunteers to spend quality time with children with special needs within the comfort of their own homes.

Jonathan and his buddy Adam spent countless hours enjoying camaraderie, friendship, and true acceptance. Both of the boy’s families also connected and developed a lasting friendship. This bond truly reflects the meaning of the Friendship Circle.

After a short battle with cancer in 2010, Jonathan left this world behind. This annual walk is dedicated in his memory and the culture of kindness that he was part of within the teenage community.

$8,600 Raised During 98KUPD’s Troop Transport

Troop TransportLerner and Rowe teamed up with Fitz Madrid from 98KUPD and the Maricopa County StandDown to help raise funds that will be used to provide local high-risk and homeless veterans with one-day bus passes to assist them with any transportation needs.

The response was HUGE! Maricopa County StandDown’s original request was for 2,000 bus passes, and they were given 4,200. KUPD listeners raised $3,600 and our founder Kevin Rowe decided to go ahead and donate the full $5,000 that he had agreed to match dollar-to-dollar at the beginning of the fundraiser.

Joan Serviss, executive director of Arizona Housing Coalition, said that the 4,200 will cover bus rides for veterans for the next 6 months so that they can make it to the VA, a job interview, school, and anywhere else Valley Metro goes.

Lerner & Rowe Gives Back Joins 98KUPD’s Troop Transport

American Flag

Our very own Kevin Rowe is teaming up with Fitz Madrid from 98KUPD and the Maricopa County StandDown to provide local homeless veterans with one-day bus passes to assist with any of their transportation needs.

Many homeless vets have no means of transportation preventing them from obtaining the things they may need. With your help we can provide those who served our country with a day pass to get where they need to be, whether that be to work, to an interview, an appointment, the grocery store, the pharmacy, etc.

Please consider donating to this worthy cause and Kevin Rowe will match each donation dollar-for-dollar up to $5000 aiming towards the 2000 one-day bus pass goal. Your appreciated donations can be made here.

“These people are over there fighting for our freedom, fighting for our life, the way of living that we have and we’re not here for them when they come back?” said attorney Kevin Rowe. “Our firm and Lerner and Rowe Gives Back has been really involved to try and help our vets in different capacities.

The Maricopa County StandDown is an annual event for veterans and their families. Serving over 2000 veterans, it’s known to be one of the largest in the country. This event is offered to provide assistance in obtaining and maintaining housing, medical and dental, education and training opportunities as well as financial advice, counseling and much more.

Give back to those who fought for your freedom. With just $4 you could change someone’s life.
