The Arizona Paralegal Association has selected the following Charity for our Annual Holiday CLE Luncheon and Charity Drive:

Developed in 2012, the Packages For Hope program seeks to aid veterans who are in transition, homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless.  
Packages From Home works directly with the Arizona Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Buckeye Outreach for Social Services (B.O.S.S.), and other local veterans outreach experts to provide food and hygiene items to veterans who are in need.
