The holiday season is about giving back to those near and dear to you, and since we feel really connected to our community, we thought it would be great to find a way to give back this season. We were given that opportunity through the annual Our Hearts To Your Soles charity event, which provides medical supplies, health screenings and other essentials to homeless and financially burdened individuals here in the Twin Cities.
Another reason attendees come to Our Hearts To Your Soles is because there are legal experts on hand to provide free legal advice. We’ve been participating in this event for years, and we love answering legal questions and providing guidance for individuals who may not otherwise have access to an attorney.
More than 40 legal professionals from many of the city’s top firms came out to St. Paul last week to participate in the wonderful event, and it was a great way to give back to the community. Avery was able to provide some legal direction to attendees who had questions about a specific legal issue, and many of them left with a plan in place to take care of their outstanding legal obligations. Even for those without current legal issues, we were able to give some guidance on topics like where it’s legal to sleep if you’re homeless, and how to best interact with a police officer who is asking for information.
Like always, it was a wonderful night full of thankfulness, and if you believe my friend and colleague Dr. Lance Silverman who helps put on the event, we set a record for the amount of smiles in one evening. So many attendees left the event in a better place physically, mentally and emotionally thanks to the Our Hearts To Your Soles event, and we are blessed that we could be involved with the event.
