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.
