Lerner & Rowe Gives Back is a charitable organization founded
by Kevin Rowe, managing partner of Lerner & Rowe, P.C.
Lerner & Rowe Gives Back is a nonprofit organization dedicated to extensive and various community outreach programs. The idea was inspired
by the 2000 movie “Pay it Forward”, where an intriguing assignment is given to a young boy from his social studies teacher. The assignment
was to create something to change the world, and put it into action, through direct action, in hopes of bringing a revolution in
an ever-widening circle of people completely unknown to one another.
We believe in paying forward the success our firm has achieved through our newly established foundation and team of employees. We work to advance
the missions of community organizations that serve children and families struggling from the aftermath of the recent economic downturn.
Any organization operating independently can only do so much. But collectively, through a network approach, we help one charitable organization
and in turn they “pay it forward” by helping families or another charitable organization. We hope our program will lead to social and community
changes on a much larger scale that will have a greater impact to those in need.
We believe it is our responsibility to advocate for and improve the lives of children who live in poverty, cope with the effects of illness
or disease, or otherwise need assistance. There is no reason that any child should go without. In addition to children in need, we serve
other various organizations in the hopes that our compassion touches the lives of the homeless, the hungry, the abused and sick, and even
to our four-legged friends.
We hope that our efforts will inspire our colleagues in the community to do the same. The greater need exists. The bigger difference is made
when we seek to directly better the lives of struggling individuals and families.
Join Lerner and Rowe Gives Back today, and see the difference you can make.

Join Us in Giving Back
The Phoenix Rescue Mission is doing great things for the local community to ensure that many families have food on their tables over the holidays.
There are three ways that you can help make a difference in the lives of the homeless and hungry in Phoenix this Thanksgiving:
Drop off a frozen turkey at the the Mission’s Community Solutions Center located at 1801 S. 35th Ave.
Fill a box with non-perishable Thanksgiving sides for a disadvantaged family to use to make Thanksgiving dinner in their own home. Decorations and notes of encouragement and best wishes are also welcome “sides” to include in the box. These boxes will be distributed on the Saturday before Thanksgiving so donations need to be to the Mission by Friday, November 17th.
Donate $1.92 to the Mission to provide someone with a hot Thanksgiving dinner at Phoenix Rescue Mission.

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back joined other community organizations in supporting Feeding Matters with a $10,000 sponsorship of their 5th Annual Community Luncheon held today at The Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, AZ. In addition to members of Lerner and Rowe Gives Back, other charitable foundation representatives were among the approximated 900 attendees that included business owners, community leaders, families, and healthcare professionals.
The luncheon served as both a fundraiser and awareness event to help support Feeding Matters’ vital programs and initiatives. Children and families who are achieving success because of the work of Feeding Matters presented their first-hand experiences.
What Feeding Matters Does to Make a Difference
Pediatric feeding disorders often compromise a child’s health and development by making it difficult or impossible for a child to eat, drink, or digest food normally. Feeding Matters was developed to help accelerate identification, ignite research, and promote collaborative care for children and families because too many children were suffering from pediatric feeding disorders due to:
Lack of trained specialists;
Limited early identification, intervention, and treatment options; and,
Failure of the general public to recognize pediatric feeding disorders as real medical conditions.
By partnering with families and healthcare professionals and raising overall awareness about pediatric feeding disorders, Feeding Matters is making progress by helping others understand this real medical condition.
You can join us in supporting the cause to fight pediatric feeding disorders! Learn more about volunteer and gifting investments at feedingmatters.org/support.
