Members of the Bisnar Chase staff, along with their families and friends, will be on hand Monday, November 12, 2012 from 12:15 PM - 3:00 PM to donate free turkeys to the area's needy. The event will be held at Connected Blessings located at 166 Donna Court in Anaheim.

The second event, scheduled for Saturday,November 17, 2012, will be held at St. Norberts, located at 300 E. Taft Avenue in Orange from 12:15 PM - 3:00 PM. Bisnar Chase will be on hand once again to donate free turkeys, vegetables, bread and other Thanksgiving food items.

"Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with a feast of food, but many people in our area struggle financially and simply don't have enough to eat," said John Bisnar, managing partner of the Bisnar Chase Law Firm and regular food bank volunteer. "We're committed to sharing in the celebration of Thanksgiving by including those who might not otherwise have a feast of their own."

Last year, Bisnar Chase distributed more than 750 free turkeys to the area's hungry and has worked closely with Second Harvest Food Bank in Orange County to sponsor nearly a dozen food giveaways in all.

According to Bisnar, the firm's free food contributions are, in part, made up of contributions from the law firm's business associates and referral sources.

"A couple of years ago, we chose to earmark referral fees and money that was spent on holiday gifts and invest those resources into feeding the less fortunate," said Bisnar. "As a result, the nearly one thousand turkeys we're donating this year comes from hundreds of other businesses and clients who support us throughout the year. This gift is simply an extension of the close relationships we've built with our clients, our business associates and our colleagues."

Hunger is an epidemic that affects people from all demographics. There are an estimated 615,000 individuals who struggle with hunger in Orange Countyand of these people, 77% do not qualify for government food assistance programs and rely on food banks for meals.

According to FeedingAmerica.org, 48.8 million Americans lived in "food insecure" homes in 2010. Of those, 32.6 million were adults and 16.2 million were children. Statistics for the same year show households with children reporting a much higher rate of "food insecurity" than those without (20.2 percent compared to 11.7 percent).

Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, a member of Feeding America, is the largest private hunger relief organization in the county, partnering with more than 470 charitable organizations to feed an average of 240,000 people each month. Since 1983, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County has distributed more than 272 million pounds of safe and nutritious surplus food. For every dollar that is donated, 94.6 cents goes directly to hunger-relief programs. To learn more, please visit http://www.feedoc.org.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“I have used Bisnar and Chase twice now, both for car accidents. Each time I received a fair settlement and honestly received more than I expected. The entire team of Bisnar and Chase were professional, courteous and friendly. The paralegals there are top notch! I cannot express enough how much I appreciated the constant communication from them and how they explained things I didn't understand in such a way that I could.
Will I ever use them again? I only hope not to get into another car accident ever so that I don't have to, but I will definitely use them if I do (knock on wood I don't). I highly recommend Bisnar and Chase if you are considering hiring a lawyer for an automobile accident.”

“My grandson and I were involved in a roll-over accident in which he broke his ankle, and I broke my neck. Unfortunately it was caused by a hit and run driver who got away. One call to Bisnar/Chase and they came right away. Of course, my case took about 3 years to settle, but Bisnar/Chase was there to inform me every step of the way as to what was going on. They answer calls and emails right away, and I was never left wondering what was going on. The whole staff is caring and friendly and everyone there treated us like family. Not to mention the fact that they never seemed to forget you, by sending birthday cards with BaskinRobbin gift cards and on New Years they always sent the fancy fortune cookies! I always thought that was very thoughtful and caring of them. I had nothing but a positive experience with them and I would recommend Bisnar/Chase to all of my friends and family or to anyone who is in need of legal help.”
