RHS participates in ALS Walk

RHS participates in ALS Walk

On Saturday, April 2nd the firm participated in the Walk to Support ALS. The ALS Walk is an annual event and everyone at our office looks forward to participating each year. It is a great way to show our continued support for ALS patients and caregivers. This event brings awareness to ALS and we always have fun when families get together. The team at the ALS Association did a great job organizing food, music, and activities. It is also a way for us to keep the legacy of our partner, Stephen Holt, alive for all of our employees. Stephen was a fantastic lawyer and is still a large part of this firm. It is an honor for us to continue to be involved with supporting the ALS Association Arkansas Chapter in his memory.

We are excited to be able to donate $5,000 to the ALS Association of Arkansas’ Walk to Defeat ALS. The ALS Walk is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts, as our partner Stephen Holt, passed away a little over two years ago from ALS. Read about Stephen here. Since his diagnosis supporting the ALS Association of Arkansas has been one of our biggest priorities and a way for us to honor his memory.

This year we will once again be attending the ALS Walk in Little Rock with a large contingency from Rainwater, Holt & Sexton. It is a time for fellowship with our coworkers, and most importantly a time to remember Stephen. Many of our newer employees never had a chance to meet Stephen, or understand what ALS is and how we can help. This serves as an opportunity to tell both stories and keep his memory alive within the firm.

If you would like to join us at the ALS walk please register at the ALS Association of Arkansas’ website.

Girl Scouts Help Veterans

Girl Scouts Help Veterans

It’s always good to see our money at work in the community, it’s even better when we see young people using it to help veterans. We were lucky enough to be able to donate $974 from our employee driven vending machine charity to a wonderful Girl Scout Troop. Troop 6292 raised money to make care packets for patients at the North Little Rock Veterans Administration Hospital. Recently they prepared those packets and were able to get them to the hospital just in time for Veterans Day.

Check out this article from the Arkansas Catholic on these girls serving their community.
