The Houston County Bar Association for young lawyers, raised $2500 for the Exchange Center for Child Abuse Prevention. This year the center didn't receive a $2300 grant. Staff members say the attorneys' donation makes up for the loss.
"They wanted to raise awareness about the impact they have on their community and they wanted to be able to give back even more and they did that by raising money for the exchange center," said Pamela Miles, Executive Director of the Exchange Center.
This year the exchange center did not get a 23 hundred dollar grant... But miles says this donation makes up for it
