SOS: A local Charity Supporting Foster Children
We first started showing our support earlier in the year when we helped sponsor a runner for their Steps for SOS 5k Run. All donations and contributions for this event went towards programs to help their older foster kids. These teenagers were in transition into adulthood and would be moving on at age eighteen; but not without some continued programs of help and guidance from SOS to ensure their success.
That’s when we found out more about the wonderful things SOS does for the children whom they foster. Admittingly, we were all but taken by a rule they adhere to which includes never separating siblings; no matter how many there are.
And that’s when we decided to make them our our charity of choice for our firm’s Spring Mixer.
To date we have donated more than $1,200 to their cause. But we’re just getting started! We’re also looking forward to working again with them later this year.

Law Offices of James G. Graver, P.A. Helping Those in Need
Helping our injured clients to the fullest capacity under the law is our number one priority. We seek justice for those who’ve been wronged and for those who are victims of negligence and/or violence. And that same passion we have for helping people extends outside our offices and into the community at large.
