At Ketterman Rowland & Westlund, we strive to treat everyone like they are our neighbors. We believe in partnerships with our community and we share in each others’ struggles and triumphs.
By extending the hand of help to as many as we can, we hope to lift a spirit, further a dream or impact a future. We have been honored to be able to put our hands together for our neighbors.
National Teacher’s Appreciation Day
Each year, we celebrate National Teacher’s Appreciation Day. It’s a day to honor their hard work and dedication throughout the year. To show our appreciation, we provide lunch to the teachers and staff at a local elementary school for the day, and make fun gift baskets for some lucky winners. We continue supporting our teachers all year long and look forward to meeting with them again!
Cardboard Kids by ChildSafe
April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. To raise awareness, we display the Cardboard Kids provided by ChildSafe for the entire month of April. Each cardboard displayed a name of a child who was a victim in Bexar County. Our staff help to spread the word by uploading numerous pictures on social media. It’s a very meaningful campaign and we enjoy being a part of it.
Walk to End Lupus
Our staff joins together to represent KRW in the Walk to End Lupus. With thousands of people to support the cause, it is truly a great experience. Two of our own employees live with Lupus today. We enjoy joining the community to support them and everyone else who suffers from Lupus. We look forward to participating and supporting those who are fighting to end this disease.
Community Justice Program
KRW volunteers their time to the Community Justice Program (CJP) Family Law Clinic every year. The CJP provides help to individuals and families who are in need of legal help, but can’t afford the costs of legal services. These individuals are in dire need and meet certain poverty guidelines. We are truly grateful to be helping others in need, and look forward to participating each year and helping other individuals in need.
San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo
Every year since 2007, KRW has contributed to the Junior Commercial Steer Show. This show is a contest for young adults providing a learning experience emphasizing selection, record keeping, animal health, industry standards, public speaking and technical knowledge. It’s truly a great program helping teach our youth about raising livestock and contributing to the well-being of our society.
Every year we donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This foundation grants wishes to children that are undergoing difficult medical treatments. Helping grant these children’s wishes is truly life-changing for all of us.
Elementary School Speaking
In February, our attorneys visited a local elementary school to talk to our youth about education and career goals. We believe that leadership starts at a young age, and is built by making good decisions, choosing the right direction in life, and being a good example for others to follow.
