November is here and the holidays are right around the corner. At this time of the year I like to reflect on what has occurred throughout the year and to count my blessings. However, there are many people in Kern County who are shut-in or are afflicted with an illness that has affected their ability to count their blessings. For this reason the Kern County Paralegal Association accepts donations from its members in November so that we can purchase a Thanksgiving meal for families who are in need. Last year, between your generous donations and money that we budgeted, KCPA gifted meals to six families, at a cost of about $100 per family.
I encourage each of you to contact the KCPA Community Affairs Director, Danielle Rodrigues, at firstname.lastname@example.org to nominate a family that you believe would benefit from a Thanksgiving meal. We will attempt to accommodate as many families as are nominated.
On another note, KCPA has changed the location of its regular monthly meetings from The Petroleum Club to the Klein DeNatale Goldner training room. This change has been wonderful for our organization, and we are thankful that KDG has agreed to host the KCPA.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and be blessed.
