$4,000 Donation to Benefit 4 Pets for Vets

Partnering Up to Aid Soldier’s Best Friends

4 Pets for Vets Donor SponsorsMark and Neanderpaul of KSLX team up with Soldier’s Best Friend to help raise funds to cover the costs of pairing four specialty-trained dogs with four Vets with disabilities. This is the second year Lerner and Rowe Gives Back has supported the 4 Pets for Vets fundraiser. We just love how much these radio hosts have stepped up and taken action to help make a difference in the lives of local combat Veterans.

To help the station reach their goal of pairing four pets with local Vets, we’ve agreed to pitch in and match up to $4,000 in donations.

Once a Veteran and dog are paired, they will train together to build a trusting relationship that saves two lives at once and inspires countless others.

How Soldier’s Best Friend Makes a Difference

Soldier’s Best Friend is a 501-c3 non-profit organization. The organization is dedicated to pairing and training service or therapeutic companion dogs with U.S. military veterans who live with combat-related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TCI) at no cost to the veteran.

The extra special twist to these pairings is that in most instances the dogs chosen for training were rescued from local animal shelters. Meaning that two lives are touched for the good when a companion dog is chosen to help a veteran.

So donations not only help improve the life of a vet living with a disability, but they also help a homeless dog be placed into a forever home!

Paying It Forward in the Community

Special Feature in So Scottsdale

 

Kevin Rowe and Glen Lerner | The Man IssueIn this special feature edition of So Scottsdale, Kevin Rowe and Glen Lerner discuss how the law firm does more than protect their personal injury clients against big insurance companies.

With the help and support of their team at Lerner and Rowe, they also make a positive impact by giving back to the community through their nonprofit Lerner and Rowe Gives Back.

Read the interview for more details on how they’ve made a difference in people’s lives as a law firm and through their nonprofit organization.

Code Red Heat Relief Water Drive 2019

Code:Red Summer Heat ReliefWater Bottle Drop-Off Locations to Benefit Homeless and Homebound

For the seventh consecutive year, Lerner and Rowe Gives Back hosts Code Red Heat Relief water bottle drive drop-off locations for the Phoenix Rescue Mission. Additionally, our team donated $7,500 directly to the rescue mission in support of their annual heat relief campaign. And because we know the dangers that hot Arizona summers present to our homeless community members, we’ve agreed to additionally contribute up to $5,000 towards 98 KUPD’s Operation Hydration. In fact, Operation Hydration also benefits Phoenix Rescue Mission’s Code:Red Heat Relief campaign.

Bottled Water Saves Lives

Ultimately, we want to do our part to help the rescue mission save as many lives as possible among the homeless throughout the next few months of elevated heat, as well as those financially disadvantaged and homebound.

Summer Heat Relief Drop Off Locations

You can help join the fight against heat-related illnesses, injuries, and even deaths that can be brought on by Arizona’s hot summer months. All you have to do is drop-off cases of bottled water at any of Lerner and Rowe’s following Arizona law office locations during regular business hours.

Similarly, the law firm is also accepting water bottle donations at their other Arizona law offices in Tucson, Yuma, and Bullhead City to help those in need outside of the Phoenix area.

National Police Week

National Police Week 2019

LRGB Water Bottle Donation 2019President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation in 1962 which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day. From that point forward, the week in which that date falls was named National Police Week.

As such, the Police Wives of Southern Nevada (PWOSN) seek donations from local organizations and businesses to be handed out to the 6,500 law enforcement officers of Southern Nevada during this week. PWOSN does this as a means to show appreciation of the law enforcement officers who take an active role in protecting communities on a daily basis.

For the second year in a row, we’ve stepped up to support PWOSN’s efforts by donating water bottles, time, and other resources throughout this week of gratitude.

A Day of Fellowship, A Week of Goodwill

Water Bottle Assemble - National Police Week In preparation for National Police Week Guy Williams, our community outreach coordinator, joined with PWOSN on multiple days to help assemble a portion of the 6,500 bottles our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back foundation donated to the group.

The portion of water bottles Guy helped assemble were passed out to every police officer of the South Central Area Command, the Bolden Area Command, and the North Las Vegas Area Command.

“The Police Wives of Southern Nevada play an integral role in supporting the police officers, their spouses, and families. It is an honor for Lerner and Rowe Gives Back to support our Southern Nevada police officers and their wives for the second year in a row,” shared attorney Glen Lerner.

National Police Week Las Vegas

Wrap-Up at Community Cookout

To wrap up National Police Week, our Gives Back team supplied water for a community cookout hosted by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD).

The community cookout took place at Doolittle Park as a means to show support of the many neighbors who live in this area of town.

The water we supplied was used to help ensure the hundreds of children and families in attendance remained hydrated while enjoying the planned festivities.

During the afternoon of food and fun, children and their families were all smiles as they enjoyed the nice weather, face painting, grilled hot dogs and burgers, disc jockey, and taking tours of a pink and white Metro cruiser.

Moreover, we were grateful to make new friends with other community-minded organizations and individuals; and were especially blessed to meet with Pastor Matthew Teis of Liberty Baptist Church and the staff and students from Cornerstone Church.

Both community churches are doing a fabulous job with the neighborhood youth providing everything from ice hockey camps to bible studies.

Glen Lerner recapped on the week-long events by sharing, “We are honored to support LVMPD in their community engagement activities such as the community cookout that took place at Doolittle Part.”

“Over the past three years of working with local law enforcement officers, we have witnessed a reduction in violent crime. We believe these positive results are a reflection of LVMPD’s efforts to invest in reaching out to the most disadvantaged and hardest hit Las Vegas neighborhoods. Further, we were honored to give back and support this community cookout. It was a perfect ending to our week-long celebration of National Police Week!”

#LovePup It’s Hip to Chip Sponsors

Hip to Chip 2019 SponsorLerner and Rowe Gives Back is very excited to be part of the one year anniversary of the #LovePup It’s Hip to Chip microchipping initiative. This is #LovePup’s biggest program yet, and we’re so pleased to be a part of it for another year.

One Year Anniversary Details

Join us in celebrating the success of the It’s Hip to Chip program and meet some of the microchipped dogs that have been adopted out to furever homes over the past year.

Event highlights include dog food and treats handed out by Safeway/Albertsons for the four-legged guests, tasty offerings from food trucks for the two-legged guests, and educational information explaining the importance of microchipping. AZ Pet Vet will also be microchipping all dogs that come without microchips.

Details to save:

DATE: Saturday, May 11, 2019
TIME: 9:00 a.m. to noon
LOCATION: Maricopa County Animal Care and Control West (2500 S. 27th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85009)

Why It’s Hip to Chip

The It’s Hip to Chip Program aims to ensure that all dogs adopted from either of the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control Animal Shelters locations receive a microchip upon their adoption. Microchips make it easier for owners to find their lost pets.

By storing the owner’s contact information in a database, a microchip takes the guesswork out of trying to find a runaway pup. And, since the microchip is implanted under the dog’s skin, there’s no need to worry about losing the device like a collar or tag.

The People Who Love Pups

Radio host Johnjay Van Es and his family have been fostering stray dogs for adoption in their home for years. The entire family shares a passion for helping animals and preparing them for their future forever home. Since the creation of #LovePup, the family has rescued, fostered, and found homes for over 500 dogs. Van Es uses the power of social media to screen interested owners and match the dogs with the perfect home.

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back would like to encourage you to adopt your next family friend instead of buying. Check out the #LovePup Foundation for an array of furry companions waiting for their forever home.
