Charleston, SC (Law Firm Newswire) November 12, 2017 - While the Steinberg Law Firm is best known for protecting the rights of injured people, they also take pride in their service to the Charleston community. For over 90 years, they have made it their mission to give back to local organizations across the lowcountry who are dedicated to improving the lives of others.
The Steinberg Law Firm Community Fund Program supports the local community by donating to non-profit organizations that focus on education, literacy, healthcare or workforce development. One of the recipients of the grants this year is Camp Happy Days. Attorney David Pearlman visited with this remarkable organization to personally thank them for the impact they are making in our community. Pearlman was pleased to present a donation of $2,500 from the Steinberg Law Firm to help support children diagnosed with cancer, and their families, with financial assistance for rent or housing, utility bills, automobile repairs, gas and grocery cards.
The mission of Camp Happy Days is to offer support and encouragement to children who are diagnosed with cancer, and their families by providing free programs throughout the year, special events and access to resources in times of crisis. Its objective is to improve the physical, emotional and psychological health of the family confronting pediatric cancer. The organization serves the tri-county, including Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties.
The Steinberg Law Firm is “honored to make a donation to Camp Happy Days, Kids Kickn' Cancer, an organization that has helped pediatric cancer patients and their families for over 35 years.”
The Financial Assistance program of Camp Happy Days assists families with children suffering from cancer, with necessities, such as food, gas, rent and utilities. Having a child diagnosed with pediatric cancer is a devastating and life-changing situation for all members of the family. Their lives are upset emotionally, psychologically and economically. Since one parent or guardian has to be with the child at all times in the hospital and in treatment, that person must take a leave of absence from work and pay for meals and incidentals. If there is just one parent, then the only person providing financial support may lose part, or all, of their income.
Camp Happy Days created a week-long residential camp in 1983 in order to provide a safe and fun environment for children and their siblings who are struggling with a cancer diagnosis. Since then, Camp Happy Days has established more than 14 programs to serve children and their families.
The Steinberg Law Firm Community Fund is pleased to be able to assist this much needed community program. For those interested in volunteering or donating to Camp Happy Days please visit their website.
