Posted By: Ward Black Law

Texting and driving is a rapidly growing trend that claims far too many lives each day.

Sadly, this doesn’t stop most, as a study found that 77% of young adults say they feel confident that they can safely text while driving. This notion of invincibility is a true epidemic and causes nearly 25% of all car crashes. Have you been involved in a serious accident where texting and driving was cited as the cause? You may be able to file a claim against the negligent driver, seeking compensation for your damages. Read More

Ward Black Law’s 8th Annual “Toys For Tots” Drive

Posted By: Ward Black Law

It’s almost that time of year again- Jack Frost is starting to nip at our noses, Christmas tree stands are popping up and everywhere you look there are miles of decorations. Christmas is officially around the corner. While that statement might bring a twinkle to your eye and some items to your shopping list, the sad reality is that approximately 16.4 million American children are currently living in poverty.

Lending A Helping Hand

This Christmas, Ward Black Law would like to announce their continued partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve to sponsor the eight annual “Toys For Tots” drive in the Greensboro, N.C., community. “Toys For Tots” is an organization whose mission is to “help the less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas.” They also strive to “unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year… and contribute to better communities in the future.”

The kick-off event for the 2015 “Toys For Tots” drive will be held on December 4th in front of the Ward Black Law offices from 7am to 6pm and is open to anyone who would like to donate to this worthy cause. Just bring new, unwrapped toys for children from infants to 12-year-olds to one our donation sites before December 19th.

Monetary gifts to “Toys For Tots” are also appreciated, but not required.  Donated toys will be delivered to needy children in the Triad area by volunteer Marines before Christmas Day.

Come Celebrate With Us!

Please see the flyer below for specific event details or call (336) 333-2244 for more information. We hope to bring some cheer to the less fortunate in the Triad area this Christmas and hope you will join us!
