Wills for Heroes event coming to Hammond
Southeast Louisiana Legal Services will be hosting Hammond’s first-ever “Wills for Heroes” event on Friday, Jan. 24.
When tragedy strikes, first responders selflessly serve and protect the public, but did you know that despite the inherently dangerous nature of their jobs, 80 to 90% of first responders do not even have a simple will.
The Wills for Heroes Foundation works nationwide with organizations like Southeast Louisiana Legal Services to provide free wills and other estate planning documents to America’s first responders who include active, volunteer, and retired police officers, firefighters, paramedics, corrections and probation officers, and their spouses.
By partnering with the Young Lawyers’ Division of the Louisiana State Bar, Southeast Louisiana Legal Services is working to change this statistic by giving back to those who give so much.
Organizers are looking for volunteers to help with the event. For more information or to sign up as a volunteer, go to http://slls.wufoo.com/forms/m7x3k1/
