The Top 3 Ways That We Were Able To Change Lives By Partnering With Up With People

My wife, Claudia, and I lost a wonderful friend named Bill Holmes on July 18, 2016.  We were fortunate to have known Bill because he was a fantastic person who seemed to move through life with pure appreciation and gratitude.  He was truly interested in having a positive impact on his world.

So in his honor we began to create a legacy for Bill by partnering with an organization named Up With People.  Our goal was to create The Bill Holmes Legacy Fund, and as the presenting sponsor Zanes Law brought Up With People to Tucson as the foundation to raise almost $240,000 in scholarship monies in Honor of our friend.

This was an amazing experience for Claudia, myself, and our Zanes Law team.  Below are the top three ways partnering with Up With People helped us to change lives.

  1. The Bill Holmes Legacy Fund. Establishing this has to be #1.  We raised almost $240,000 that will be used to provide Up With People scholarships to deserving young people over the next fifteen years.  That’s amazing!  Our role in this is something that Claudia and I will always be proud of.  This fund will provide opportunity to its recipients and will change their lives, and they will, in turn, have a positive impact on the world.  Simply put, Claudia and I are grateful.  Grateful to have been able to honor our friend.  Grateful to have been a driving force behind a fundraiser that will have a positive impact on young people for years to come.  Grateful to have been part of an amazing group who worked so hard and raised so much money.
  2. The community service. Community service has always been part of what Claudia and I and Zanes Law are about.  That’s just how it’s always been.  So this was a wonderful opportunity for our Zanes Law team to impact our Tucson community.  As a team we enjoyed volunteering and helping at the Tucson Children’s Museum, at TMM Family Services, and at GAP Ministries.
  3. The Up With People team. Being part of this with Up With People’s young performers changed the lives of some our Zanes Law team members.  We loved getting to know the “Uppies” while doing community service and had a great time with them.  We had two people in the firm act as host families.  Below is what they had to say:
    • Jeanne Cote – What words would describe being a host family for UWP would be; “Life Altering for the entire family.”  Our cast member was so appreciative of what we had to offer. Being a first time host, we almost backed out because we didn’t think we could handle the task. We decided at the last moment to continue and the experience has now given us an extended member of our family. We had been able to show her our neighborhood, church and go on some nature hikes. Our 9 year old knew our cast member as her host sister and misses her dearly. Our cast member helped our daughter with a school project and they spent time doing each other’s hair.  We look forward to being a host family in the future.
    • Richard Edelman – We were hosts for Denis Maurer, a cast member for Up with People during mid-March 2017. Denis has been on several tours with Up with People and comes from a small town close to Zurich, Switzerland.  In the evening we shared history and customs as well as perspectives of world events and values.  It was amazing to learn just how much we had in common despite the distance between Switzerland and the United States.  As a student musician, Denis was a talented instrumentalist who could play several instruments and gave us guitar lessons one evening during the week.  We were very impressed with Denis as well as all others that were associated with the Up with People program.  Everyone we met was respectful, quick to establish a positive relationship and eager to assist others. For us, “Hosting” was a very positive experience and an association that we would like to continue.

This opportunity to give back to the world was an amazing experience for our Zanes Law team.  Claudia and I believe that experiences are what life is all about, and this experience certainly has made our lives better.

If you’d like to help us reach our goal of $250,000- please visit www.upwithpeople.org/give and select The Bill Holmes Legacy Fund!

Zanes Law Partners With Garrett’s Bears

Zanes Law and Garrett’s Bears to Collect Stuffed Animals for Children at Diamond Children’s Center and TMC.

Zanes partners with 9-year-old founder of Garrett’s Bears

Tucson, Ariz. (December 1, 2016) – This Christmas, Zanes Law is thrilled to partner with Garrett’s Bears, a program founded by 9-year-old, Garrett Tews. Garrett’s Bears is a yearly stuffed animal drive for Banner Diamonds Children’s Medical Center and TMC for children.

Four years ago Garrett realized that children would be spending their Christmas morning in pain or frightened. Over the last four years, Garrett has raised 1,600 new stuffed animals for Diamond’s Children’s Medical Center to deliver to the children on Christmas morning.

“I raise bears each year because I believe that even a kid can give back,” said Garrett Tews, founder of Garrett’s Bears.

“Not only is this a fantastic program for children here in Tucson but for Garrett to lead this project at such a young age is a remarkable and selfless act. We want to do everything we can to support this young man live out his dream and continue to be a leader in the Tucson community,” said Doug Zanes, founder of Zanes Law.

As a part of their contribution, Zanes will also open two of their offices to the public as drop-off locations for donations beginning December 1st through December 16th:

  • 3501 E. Speedway Blvd., Suite 101
  • 1185 W. Irvington Road, Suite 155

Zanes Law and Garrett’s Bears are collecting any and all sized stuffed animals to help Garrett reach his goal of 400 new stuffed animals. The stuffed animals must be new with tags on as per the hospital’s policy.

This is Zanes Law’s second year partnering with Garrett’s Bears with the goal of putting as many smiles on as many faces as possible this Christmas.

Zanes Law Donates Food to Youth On Their Own in Tucson

Zanes Law Donates Food to Youth On Their Own in Tucson

Zanes Law Donates Food to Youth On Their Own in Tucson

When our team here at Zanes Law heard about the lack of food at the Youth On Their Own “mini-mart”, we couldn’t sit around and do nothing.

More than 30 teens rely on the food provided by YOTO daily and the organization is in dire need of food donations.

With summer right around the corner, they anticipate even more teens in need of food since school will be out and these teens will now need lunch in addition to dinner.

For more information about the immediate need, please visit: http://www.tucsonnewsnow.com/story/31560656/nonprofit-reducing-food-limit-for-homeless-teens-seeking-donations?sf23126696=1

Zanes Law to Prepare Food Boxes for the ICM Food and Clothing Bank

Zanes Law to Prepare Food Boxes for the ICM Food and Clothing Bank

This March  Zanes Law has a full calendar of charity and community events and one of them is to help the ICM Food and Clothing bank prepare food boxes for local families in need family.

ICM’s core foundation is their volunteers!  In fact, Several hundred volunteers spend time at ICM, providing the following services:

  • At the “front counter” where clients apply for help
  • Interviewing clients one-on-one to determine their specific needs
  • Working the “client boutique” where clients choose clothing for the family
  • Working in the “pantry” where food boxes are made up
  • Supervising children in “Love Corner” while parents meet with interviewers
  • Sorting and hanging clothing in the sorting room
  • Preparing toiletries for needy families

In 2014, Volunteers gave 23,924 hours to ICM, the equivalent of 9 full-time, average wage employees – this would cost ICM $215,316 per year!

That kind of generosity allows ICM to keep 94.5% of their $3.5 million budget going to their clients and building expenses.

The jobs mentioned above are performed from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. every weekday and about 125 of our volunteers come in every week on the same day, and some others once a month.

Some volunteers come in groups from congregations around the Valley and enjoy a combined social and service time together. Others are like Zanes Law, local corporations and companies ready and willing to lend a hand to provide a better community and life for those less fortunate.

If you would like to volunteer and join Zanes Law on March 24th,  click here for an online volunteer interest form!

Hope to see you there!
