With the support of NBC 7 and Telemundo 20, Contreras Law Firm was able to provide 1,000 meals to families in need of food assistance this week through the San Diego Food Bank. COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on many San Diegans since Governor Newsom’s March 19th stay-at-home order was initiated. Nearly 300,000 San Diego County residents have lost jobs because of the pandemic leaving them to rely on government assistance to feed their families. Further the closure of schools have put a strain on those that would normally benefit from the free lunch programs available to children 18 and under.
However, San Diegans have stepped-up and those who do have anything to donate, whether time or funds, seem to be doing so. Contreras Law Firm is so thankful that amid this unprecedented time, it has been able to impact the community in a positive way outside of its typical representation of clients. Shareholders Dolores Contreras and Elyse Butler, along with their staff are proud to be among those who have recognized that community outreach is necessary now more than ever. “Our Firm has always had a strong pulse on the community,” says Contreras. “Being able to keep our staff employed was our number one priority. After ensuring this objective was met, we knew that we needed to go beyond our staff and help those outside of our office and within our community.”
