Local Groups Working to Improve Lives in Little Rock
The Little Rock personal injury attorneys here at Rainwater, Holt & Sexton understand the importance of giving back to the community where we live and work. That’s why we would like to tell you about some local citizens who are striving to make Arkansas a better place to live.
One group of volunteers gathered at Camp Robinson to help clean up after a tornado ripped through the area in April. The team labored for four days to have the property ready for use this summer.
Giving young people the tools they need to succeed is important too. That’s why one local Little Rock business, Skillz Barber Shop, launched a mentoring campaign for the city’s youth. Young boys are each partnered with an older mentor who works to be a role model in the child’s life by participating in activities with them and guiding them to make the right choices in life. FOX 19 News says there are already 19 boys participating in the program and the next event is slated to take place Sunday, June 29, at 3 p.m.
While the last organization was looking to help young people, the next group is helping children help others. Former professional skateboarder, Daniel Haney, organized a youth clean up event at the Riverside skate park to teach children who use the park to take pride in it’s upkeep and improvement.
Rainwater, Holt & Sexton’s team support the efforts made by others to better neighborhoods in Little Rock and other areas of Arkansas. We encourage you to read about The Ripple Effect campaign we launched to help others in our state.
