SAN DIEGO, Calif. – January 29, 2014 – Higgs Fletcher & Mack, San Diego’s oldest and one of the largest law firms kicked-off its 2014 “7,500 Hour Volunteer Challenge” campaign yesterday (Tuesday, January 28) at USO San Diego’s downtown facility.
More than 20 firm participants turned out to serve dinner to more than 200 service members as well as present a $1,000 check to the non-profit organization.
“Supporting our military men and women and their families is extremely important to us,” said Christina Bobb, attorney at Higgs Fletcher & Mack and past service member. “As a firm with a number of former military personnel, we understand the sacrifices they make day in and day out.”
The USO provides support services, as well as a “home away from home,” for all members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.
