JSH FIRM ANNOUNCEMENTS JSH GIVES BACK 027 JSH GIVES BACK JSH Sponsors 37th Annual Arizona Women Lawyers Association Convention JSH proudly sponsored the Arizona Women Lawyers Association’s (“AWLA”) 37th Annual Convention. The theme was “Learning to Love Your Professional and Personal Life.” Attendees identified and developed professional and personal goals and received instruction and advice on methods to eliminate challenges standing in the way of achieving goals; gained a greater understanding of how to achieve professional success by rising within the ranks of their current work environments or by choosing to change their work environment to better meet their professional and personal goals; and increase awareness of how the practice of law is changing and how to adapt to those changes Back to School Clothing & School Supply Drive For the past two years, the firm’s Charity Committee has coordinated a donation drive for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students at Desert View Elementary School in north central Phoenix. JSH employees purchased much-needed items, including socks, underwear and tennis shoes, as well as helped to stock the “lending closet” with gently-used clothing for students who need a second set of clothing at home or require a change of clothes mid- school day. Our employees donate a majority of the money by purchasing $5 Jeans Days coupons which allow them to wear jeans to work on certain days throughout the year. First Annual Tour de Ren JSH cycled for a cause this summer, namely for kids at Phoenix Children’s Hospital! The First Annual “Tour de Ren” was hosted by our building management company, Hines. Our employees joined other Renaissance Square tenants for a day of cycling on stationary bikes in an effort to support initiatives to cure and treat Cerebral Palsy, among other diagnoses. JSH Sponsors Arizona Association of Defense Counsel Softball Tournament for Southwest Human Development The Young Lawyers Division of the Arizona Association of Defense Counsel (AADC) hosted its annual softball tournament to benefit Southwest Human Development.
