PBCBA BAR BULLETINS pbcba_bulletin_Dec. 2019 - Page 17

National Adoption Day Book and Bear Drive Friday, November 22, 2019 was by far one of the best days of the year at the West Palm Beach Courthouse because it was National Adoption Day! Thanks in part to our Lawyers for Literacy Committee, every child (and their siblings) were given a goody bag to remember the day including books and bears that were donated by our generous members. For all of our members who collected items for this special event– thank you! PBCBA Board of Directors brought in their donations to support this worthy cause.
