Metier Law Firm believes that all children have the right to a safe and happy childhood. Unfortunately, early episodes of abuse and neglect can rob many children of a carefree childhood experience.
Realities for Children has supported at-risk youth and victims of child abuse for more than 20 years. The organization works with 25 local youth agencies and more than 150 local businesses to provide “a safety net of service and funding” beyond government agencies, so that no child is left behind.
Children in group homes or foster care may not have access to the school supplies they need to succeed. Even those placed with relatives may still be suffering trauma from harmful events, and the stress can affect their education.
Metier Law Firm has established an ongoing relationship with Realities for Children, making regular donations as a gold-level supporter. The clip below shows the lawyers and their families participating in “Bikes for Tykes” for the charity in 2011.
Realities for Children Back-to-School Backpack Drive
In August, Realities for Children is working to provide new backpacks and school supplies to the abused and neglected children in its program. The organization hopes to provide 400 backpacks filled with paper, pens, folders, crayons, markers, glue and other supplies to help kids make a smoother transition back into a learning environment.
Metier Law Firm is supporting Realities’ efforts by acting as drop-off location for the backpack drive. Those who wish to donate can drop their backpacks at our Fort Collins location weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The drive ends on August 11.
For more information or alternate drop-off locations, please visit the Realities for Children Facebook page.
