There are pirates in Indiana, and Vogelzang Law is setting sail.
This year, the Vogelzang Law team is proud to work with Pirates, Inc., an organization in northwest Indiana whose mission is to make the world a better place, supporting and funding care for children. The Pirates benefit three charities: Tradeswind Services, Inc; the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana; and the Down Syndrome Association of Northwest Indiana. Each of these groups serves children, helping to provide access to things like childcare, extracurricular activities, healthy lifestyle support, and occupational and speech therapy. Both Tradeswind Services, Inc. and the Down Syndrome Association of Northwest Indiana provide particular care for children with special needs, building positive spaces for children and families.
“It has been inspirational to be at these meetings and to see so many union leaders and supporters coming up with ways to raise money for the three organizations the Pirates represent. They collaborate in hopes that the children of these organizations can have a better quality of life through the various programs offered,” said Mirela Stefanescu, Vogelzang Law Union Liaison.
Since 1966, the Pirates have donated over $4 million, all of which has gone toward providing support to children and families in need. Through their work with countless families over the years, the Pirates have made a huge impact in the community, building foundations of hope and independence that have a ripple effect.
As Vogelzang Law knows well, true change begins with families. By providing much-needed support to those in need, organizations like Pirates, Inc. build a better future. Programs like behavioral services, extracurricular activities, and educational initiatives help to create a more inclusive future where everyone has a seat at the table. Thanks to the Pirates, countless children have been provided with the help they needed to build a future they never thought possible, giving families hope when it was most needed.
Serving others in need is integral to the mission at Vogelzang Law. Often, the financial compensation received through asbestos and mesothelioma lawsuits helps get families back on their feet after expensive medical bills. More than once, the funds have reached into the future, helping families pay for college tuition, weddings, and more. Through our work with the Pirates, we hope to extend our impact in the community and help support even more families in need.
It is an honor to work with the Pirates, an organization which shares the commitment to community service and dedication to supporting families with Vogelzang Law. Stay tuned for more updates and information about how the Pirates are spreading hope in 2019!
