At Brown Immigration Law, PC, LLO we value the community we live in. With our clients continued support, we have been able to give back to many local, state, national, and international charities. Some of our supported charities include:
Rousseau Elementary – In 2012, David Brown and his wife set out to raise $12,000 to build a track as part of a wellness effort at Rousseau elementary in Lincoln, NE. It was especially close to their hearts as their son Thatcher would soon be starting school there, and this track would give him and other students with disabilities the opportunity to be out on the playground engaging with other children. Through Runners for a Reason, Team Thatcher was set up. Ultimately through the support of more than 30 runners and 200 donors, Team Thatcher raised $41,500. In the year following Team Thatcher solicited additional donations to push the total over $46,500. Rousseau was able to not only build the track, but they also added additional handicap accessible areas in the playground.
El Centro de las Américas – Brown Immigration Law continues to actively support El Centro de las Américas, a local nonprofit organization, focused on educating and empowering Latino/Hispanic Families and the Community at Large. Whether it be speaking to our local Latin community about various immigration subjects, or helping engage other community leaders to increase support for positive immigration reform, Brown Immigration Law continues to reach out to our community through this organization. We also understand the costs associated with El Centro providing services to the community, and in an effort to ensure they continue to maintain sufficient funding, Brown Immigration Law sponsors their largest annual fundraiser each year. The event is held in the Spring each year, and boasts a silent and live auction. A fun evening called Wine, Chocolate, Tango.
