2021 Builders of Justice Phone-A-Thon Campaign

2021 Builders of Justice Phone-A-Thon Campaign

About This Campaign

This year, Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas (Legal Aid) will not be hosting our in-person Builders of Justice Progressive Dinner as we continue to maintain protections that safeguard the health and well-being of our staff and supporters. Held annually since 2013, this popular “Walk Around McKinney Square” dinner event recognizes deserving honorees who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership and service benefiting low-income families in Collin County and raises funds to help those in need. Over the last two years, Legal Aid helped more than 7,100 clients in Collin County.

Since the pandemic began, calls to Legal Aid have increased from Texans facing job displacement, food insecurity, or housing instability, as well as requests for help involving domestic violence. These are but a few of the civil legal issues we assist with, which range from foreclosure prevention and wrongful eviction, to driver license restoration, consumer matters, and end-of-life document preparation, and family law matters including family violence and child custody.

In lieu of this in-person event, we have planned an October Phone-A-Thon, which will be held remotely this month. With your help, we can continue to close the justice gap by providing free civil legal help to low-income community members who desperately need Legal Aid’s assistance.

What we are doing to help our volunteers:

*  Establish and conduct a remote phone bank throughout October to raise financial 
    support

*  Recruit, train, and support the volunteers with making calls or sending emails

*  Provide call lists, sponsorship packets, and phone and email scripts

What ask of our volunteers:

*  Sign up to contact at least 25 potential supporters by phone and/or email

*  Be willing to use your phone to make the calls from your preferred location

*  Complete your call assignment by 5 p.m., on Friday, November 5
