If you follow us at all, you know we hold an Open House and Hat & Glove Drive every December. For the past ten years, we have collected hats and gloves to distribute to the Warren County School districts. We were extremely excited to host this year’s event. With COVID, we had sacrifice some of the normalcy of our event, but we did not let that stop us from making this event the biggest success yet.

Earlier this year, our dear friend, Janine Jensen, lost her battle to cancer. Janine was not only a great friend of Ryan and many of ours here at the office, but she catered our event for the previous four years. Knowing she wasn’t going to be a part of our event this year, we wanted to honor her. We announced in October that we would be holding our annual event in her memory. It quickly became evident that Janine touched the lives of so many people, near and far.

We wanted to honor Janine the best we were knew how, so on November 25, 2020, our office challenged the public and community to donate 750 hats and gloves to be distributed to the the Warren County Schools. In return, Ellis Law Offices, P.C. would donate $1,500.00 to the American Cancer Society in memory of Janine. Not only did we reach our goal, we CRUSHED it. Our community came together and donated over 1150 items!
