Silver & Wright LLP’s ongoing mission to protect and serve the community is closing the year on a high note as they adopted a family of four – including three children for The Priority Center’s Families Helping Families Holiday Drive in Orange County.
After signing up to adopt the family (who’s cared for by a single 30-year-old mother), the firm fulfilled all 20+ wishes on their Christmas list just three days later; we even had an abundance of gift cards that we were able to bless a second family.
The three children who range in age from three to eight will be receiving booster car seats, three bikes, clothing, socks, and shoes; and we collected over $500 in Target gift cards – which will go to the mothers of the two families.
As our firm has been heavily involved in the Orange County community for many years, we’re taking our community presence to the next level by rolling out an Employee Volunteer Program for the newly formed Silver and Wright Cares Team.
“Our firm is looking forward to future accomplishments with our newly formed employee volunteer group the Silver & Wright Cares Team. Our team is working diligently this holiday season and beyond to give back to our underserved communities in Orange County. I’m excited for us to collaborate with new partners and show our love to the community in a whole new way.”

One of those partnerships we forged this holiday season is with The Priority Center, which serves at-risk adults, families, and children in crisis; and is the coordinator of the Families Helping Families Holiday Drive.
Now and in the coming weeks, after long days in the office, members of the Silver & Wright Cares Team are also donating their time volunteering as phone banking volunteers, collecting gifts from Santa’s drop-off locations, and serving as sorters and distributers for The Priority Center.
“The holidays can be financially challenging, especially for families living below the poverty level. So it’s important for organizations, like our firm, to come together and give back to the community, especially for the children. I’m proud of our team for taking the initiative so quickly to contribute to our adopted family by fulfilling their essential needs. This is what the holidays are all about.”
