PPA is committed to strengthening our community by volunteering our time to assist attorneys and/or other legal service providers in pro bono activities, as well as participating in a number of community service projects. PPA is proud to have partnered the South Carolina Young Lawyers Division to serve as volunteers at their Wills Clinics. In addition to our involvement with pro bono projects, PPA enjoys reaching out to the community to serve where we can. In past years we have collects Easter baskets for several local children's homes, collected canned goods Harvest Hope Food Bank and adopted military legal professionals through the Navy Legalmen program.
If you have a program that you believe can benefit from our membership, please contact our Pro Bono Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
