After months of being put on pause over COVID-19 safety concerns, Carlson Cares made a comeback in a major way through our to-go snack pack giveaway down the street from our Waco office in the Waco American Classifieds parking lot. Much like the rest of the country, Carlson Cares has been working tirelessly to think of innovative ways to serve our community through the pandemic.
On Saturday, July 11, Carlson Law Firm employees gave away 160 snack-packs in a drive-thru service.
“When we started thinking about how we wanted to serve the Waco community this year, we had to take a lot into consideration,” attorney Dominic Braus said. “We knew that we had to practice social distancing and we knew that we had to give away something people needed.”
In the snack-packs, children received a variety of breakfast and lunch items as well as snacks.
Over 30% of Wacoans live below the poverty line and many suffer the devastating consequences of hunger. The Carlson Law Firm launched its Carlson Cares program two years ago to laser focus our charitable efforts on the people in our community who need it most.
“We recognize that this is a time when people are hurting, financially and, maybe in some cases, mentally because they’ve been stuck in the house,” Braus said. “It was our pleasure to host an event that got people out of the house and helped families worry less about where the next meal will come from.”
Families also had a chance to win a family membership to Cameron Park Zoo by posting a fun photo on social media.
This event wouldn’t have been possible without the support of others in the Waco community:
