Distracted driving happens any time a driver takes attention away from driving. It could be glancing at the time, adjusting music or climate controls, or even talking to your passenger.
While distracted driving is not new, it has grown exponentially over the past 20 years.
GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys’ Fall Coat Drive collected 702 coats plus cash donations from generous donors in the community.
The firm primarily gave the coats to the Salvation Army, which distributes them to local children and many others in need, and the Hampton Veterans Administration Center, which serves many homeless veterans.
Gibson, Singleton chair Christmas project to deliver 90 turkey dinners to local families in need
Our attorneys, Ken Gibson and John Singleton, wanted to help local people who might not be having a Christmas dinner this year. To fulfill the mission, they enlisted their fellow members of the Middle Peninsula Bar Association.
The Association jumped in wholeheartedly, and the first “Lawyers Aren’t Turkeys” Christmas Dinner Project was born.
Judging by their heartwarming commercials, catchy phrases, and pledges to be “on your side,” you would think that insurance companies are the most compassionate and benevolent companies on earth. But are these “helping hands” and “good neighbors” as selfless as they would like us to believe? And do these multimillion-dollar corporations care about compensating those hurt in accidents fairly?
We have great news….
Middle Peninsula and beyond, you’ve done it! We asked for 500 coats for our annual Fall Coat Drive…
If you’re like most parents (including us!), you always worry a little when you’re separated from your children. For many of us, letting go of our child’s hand and watching him or her board a school bus for the first time is a moment you remember.
Children’s coats are needed most of all!
Since the beginning of October, we’ve been collecting donations for our annual Fall Coat Drive. The Eastern Virginia community has answered our call, generously donating 180 coats to date! We want to THANK YOU all so much, and at the same time let you know that the Salvation Army REALLY needs more children’s coats. If you’re planning to donate, you can’t go wrong with a child’s coat! Please, bring your new and used coats to our office in Hayes. We’re open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
An inspiring story from WUSA 9 News shows the real spirit of America’s veterans. I’d like to share it with you.
Army Captain Pat Horan was serving in Iraq in 2007 when he was shot in the left temple. The bullet destroyed the communication center of his brain. Doctors doubted he would ever communicate with the outside world again. The wound also caused Captain Horan to lose a great deal of motor function, practically paralyzing him.
Brandt Buchler, 2, came in this week with his mom, Shannon Pratt, to donate a coat he had outgrown. His gift was the 71st coat in our 2017 Fall Coat Drive! We always need children’s coats because kids grow so quickly that it’s hard for many parents to keep up. Thank you, Brandt and Shannon, for being so generous.
“We’re just going around the corner.” “We’ll be right back.” “We’re almost home.” These are just a few of the reasons people use for not buckling children into car seats—or buckling their own seat belts.
A Pennsylvania mother is thankful she didn’t make any of those excuses when she picked up her children—a 6-week-old and a 3-year-old—from preschool.
