Shoe Boxes Packed; Family Adopted

Each semester, Professor Daniele Le encourages her students to participate in a service project. This past November, the students in her Legal Research and Writing 1 class eagerly shopped and filled shoe boxes as part of the Operation Christmas Child (OCC) program. OCC ships these boxes to children around the world.

The nine students in Professor Le’s class filled nine boxes, praying over them and for the children who would be receiving them. Professor Le and the students are looking forward to finding out where their boxes were delivered.

As one of its service projects for the year, the Delta Theta Phi chapter at TLS adopted a family of six through South County Outreach (SCO) and blessed them with groceries and gifts to make their Christmas season more enjoyable. Chapter leaders Michelle McCracken and Bethany Broussard had the joy of delivering the gifts and spending time with the family.

SCO provides much-needed food, housing and other resources to the unemployed, underemployed, seniors, veterans, disabled and children in South Orange County.

Space Gets Much Needed Improvements

Over the last several months, renovations were completed to an office suite jointly occupied by two of our four partnering agencies—the Christian Legal Aid Office and the Christian Legal Society‘s West Coast office.

First Program fully Funded

Last month, Trinity Law School (TLS) announced the release of Connect2Need, a project-centered fundraising tool specially designed for Trinity Law School by Advisory Board member, Stuart Orr. The law school now reports that of the five projects launched one has been fully funded and another at half its goal less than one month after being announced. There are other projects that still need support and new ones being worked on weekly. As a reminder, here’s how friends and alumni of TLS can use Connect2Need and help TLS in the process. It’s just three simple steps:

Promote a Project
Step One – access Connect2Need via the link at the bottom of this section. There you will find a variety of projects to choose from to promote.

Step Two – simply select a project from those shown by clicking the project image or name.

Step Three – on the individual project page, select the media in which you wish to share the need with your network and then post away—for example, by selecting the Facebook icon you can post a project on your Facebook page asking family, friends, and connections to support this particular project and why it’s important to you.

Donate to a Project
Step Four – follow the same steps above to access an individual project and choose the donate button to make a financial contribution. If you choose to make a gift before you share the project via social media, now do Step Three as outlined above to encourage or challenge others to join you and TLS in its work.

New projects will be added every four to six weeks, with an emphasis on Student Group projects coming in 2013.
