Blank Rome’s Adopt-A-Center Program supports local nonprofit organizations that provide essential outreach to underserved children and families in Los Angeles.
Together, Blank Rome and the “adopted” nonprofit organization plan an event for the children and families of the nonprofit's community, as well as guests invited by our Firm. Our Adopt-A-Center Program’s previous commitments include supporting such noteworthy endeavors as a rehabilitative drama and arts program for young women in the Los Angeles County juvenile justice system, an orchestral instruction in East Los Angeles, art programs for abused children, services providing healthcare for low-income families as well as housing for runaway and homeless children, and distributing school supplies and backpacks to needy children before the start of the school year. The events are fully underwritten by Blank Rome, and additional funds for the organization are raised and donated annually by supporters of our Adopt-A-Center Program.
But, Blank Rome’s commitment does not end there. Our Advisory Board and the Firm’s attorneys and professionals also volunteer to participate in the adopted organization’s events that are hosted throughout the year—and frequently, beyond. In past years, participating attorneys have stayed involved well after the completion of our Adopt-A-Center Program’s commitment, in order to assist as board members and volunteers.

2020 ADOPT-A-CENTER PROGRAM CANCELED
Due to the current uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic, and in order to help protect the health and safety of our Adopt-A-Center participants as well as our colleagues, employees, and their families, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel this year’s Adopt-A-Center Program, which was scheduled for Fall 2020.
For 22 years, it has been our most cherished tradition and deepest commitment to recognize and support local nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to helping underserved children and families in the Los Angeles area. We are deeply saddened and disappointed that we cannot host this year’s program, but very much anticipate once again moving forward with this important initiative in 2021. We will personally reach out with additional information to the organizations that have already submitted their proposals for this year, and keep everyone notified of our plans as they develop.
For more information on dealing with the legal and business issues surrounding this pandemic, please visit Blank Rome’s Coronavirus (“COVID-19”) Taskforce page, which offers our Firm’s latest updates, resources, guidance, and webinars on COVID-19.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
On behalf of the Blank Rome family, please be well and safe.
