Associates & Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, is proud to have joined forces with several local organizations to provide clothing, supplies, and words of inspiration to teen mothers in our community. A donation drive was held across the firm and the community to help gather necessities, and the giveaway was held at the Lee Adolescent Mothers Program (LAMP), where the mothers attend school. Seventeen mothers attended the event and received gift bags containing diapers, wipes, personal care items, baby soap, lotion and other essentials, as well as being able to select outfits for their children. Paws Crossed, Uplif, and One More Child also participated in this project.
Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner understands the good that happens when members of a community help each other. “A community is defined by how it cares for those in need,” said attorney P.J. Scheiner. “These young mothers and their children have faced tremendous challenges and hardships. By lending a helping hand to those less fortunate than us, we are working to build a stronger foundation for a community that empowers the success of even the most disadvantaged.”
The Lee Adolescent Mothers Program (LAMP) is a Title 1 school whose mission is to provide a nurturing academic environment for teenage parents and their children. Teenagers who attend LAMP can continue their middle and high school education, receive training on coping with the added stress of having a baby, and learn how to take care of and raise their children. This year, 16 teenage mothers will graduate and move forward with their lives.
