We are excited to announce that Appelman Law Firm will once again participate in the annual Our Hearts to Your Soles event to benefit homeless and financially burdened individuals in the Twin Cities.
Each year Our Hearts To Your Soles provides individuals with socks, shoes and foot examinations to help them prepare for the cold months ahead. Oftentimes these individuals are homeless, so the new clothes help protect against frostbite during the cold Minnesota winter.
Another aspect of the Our Hearts To Your Soles event is the legal advice session. Local attorneys are on hand to provide attendees with free legal advice on a wide range of subjects. Many times these people are having financial problems do to a current or past legal situation, and sitting down with a lawyer to discuss solutions can be a life changing.
We’ve attended Our Hearts To Your Soles event for a three years in a row, and it’s truly a rewarding experience. The event is always around Thanksgiving, and it’s nice to be able to give back to the community and it helps put what really matters in perspective.
If you know anyone who is down on their luck and in need of legal advice, please let them know about the event. Check out the event details below.
- What: Our Hearts To Your Soles 2014
- Where: Dorothy Day Center, 183 Old 6th Street in Saint Paul
- When: Tuesday, November 25th from 5:30pm to 7:45pm

The event is financed by my friend and colleague Dr. Lance Silverman. I know he is still looking for volunteers to help with set up, clean up, shoe unboxing and general assistance throughout the night. If you would like to get volunteer, send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If you would like to help the cause but cannot make it to the event, you can donate to the program through their website. A donation of $15 provides one person with a new pair of shoes, socks and a free foot consultation.
