OUR COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
W ith the end of the year coming up, I often find myself thinking about the beginning — the beginning of the year, my career, my law group, and everything else. In fact, as I meet with more clients and take on more cases each passing year, I can’t help but reflect the abundant reasons I opted to join the legal field in the first place. When I was younger, I watched as my grandparents tried to learn as much as they could regarding their own estate planning. While they had a good attorney, he drew up their will but did nothing else. I knew from then on that I wanted to help people like my grandparents make great informed decisions about their legacy and offer some peace of mind for them and their families. In my years as an attorney, helping clients remains my favorite aspect of my job. However, getting to work with local nonprofits in the area is a very close second. “My team here at Hegwood Law Group hosts four charity nonprofit events each year in order to shed light on all the amazing services they provide and help raise money. That way, they can continue to serve the people who need them most” My team here at Hegwood Law Group hosts four charity nonprofit events each year in order to shed light on all the amazing services they provide and help raise money. That way, they can continue to serve the people who need them most. Over the years, one of the organizations that has really captured my heart is Texas EquuSearch (TXEQ) Search and
Recovery. TXEQ officially started in August of 2000 with a mission to offer volunteer horse-mounted search and recovery for lost and missing persons. The organization was initially founded by director Tim Miller in dedication to the memory of his daughter, Laura, who was tragically abducted and murdered in north Galveston County in 1984. The team, composed entirely of volunteers, has been involved in nearly 2,000 searches across the U.S. and has returned over 400 missing people home to their families — many of whom might have died otherwise. I have heard Tim speak at several conferences, and every experience I’ve had has been profound; his passion for TXEQ is palpable. It is for this reason that my team and I hold our annual Cruisin’ for the Cause silent auction in October. This year, we had 80 people attend and raised approximately $3,300. While the mission of TXEQ is one that I will forever be passionate about, the nonprofit our group will be helping this month is Family Promise of Clear Creek, a network helping homeless families achieve sustainable independence. The organization is one of 200 affiliates across the country that mobilizes the faith community to transition families away from homelessness to permanent housing. This transition includes shelter, meals, and hospitality. It also offers supportive services to assist parents to find a job that can provide sustainable income. Especially with the holidays on the horizon, we want to try our best to help as many families as we can. We will raise money this month by inviting clients,
friends, fellow attorneys, and business owners to our annual Christmas Tea event. Additionally, we will also host a Toys for Tots drive so we can gather as many presents as possible to provide gifts for kids who otherwise feel like Santa forgot about them. If you would like to donate a toy to a child in need this Christmas or want more information about how you can help TXEQ or Family Promise of Clear Creek, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
From all of us here at Hegwood Law Group, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
