Members of the Crary Buchanan legal team participated in the 3rd Annual Charger Run to support the St. Joseph Catholic School and Martin County House of Hope last week. The event took place on May 10th, 2013. Melanie Howe and Christine Grant, legal assistants at the firm for Steve Beres and Rob Elder, participated in the race with Attorney Elysse A. Elder. Christine Howe took 3rd place in her age division.
Runners brought non-perishable food items and a $30 participation fee to support St. Joseph Catholic School and the House of Hope food pantry. The race started at St. Joseph School in Stuart, Florida, and featured a 5-Kilometer run/walk and a Kid’s Dash. All proceeds from the race were divided between St. Joseph Catholic School and the House of Hope. Click here to learn more about St. Joseph Catholic School.
House of Hope is a nonprofit agency dedicated to providing clothing, furniture, financial assistance, and food to residents of Martin County who are in need. House of Hope helps single-parent households, senior citizens, veterans, the recently unemployed, and low-wage workers who struggle to meet their personal needs and the financial demands of their families. House of Hope runs three programs: a food pantry, clothes closet, and Project HOPE.
Project HOPE offers financial assistance to families who are unable to pay for rent, prescriptions, utilities, and other necessities. Many Project HOPE clients need more than one-time financial assistance, so the organization developed a network of social workers to provide long-term aid for families in Martin County with ongoing monetary needs. The project provides resources and training programs to help these families achieve financial independence and stability.
