4ALL Service Day Is March 2
The North Carolina Bar Foundation’s 11th annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day will take place on Friday, March 2. Call-in centers will operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with the exception of Wilmington (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
Volunteer attorneys will staff call centers in Asheville (WLOS News 13), Charlotte (WBTV), Fayetteville (Hutchens Law Firm), Greensboro (The Volunteer Center of Greensboro), Greenville (WNCT-CBS), Raleigh (WRAL-TV) and Wilmington (WECT/Fox Wilmington).
The 4ALL Statewide Service Day reflects the NC Bar Foundation’s vision of a vibrant North Carolina where legal services are available to all, regardless of ability to pay, and where members of the legal profession provide community service and leadership that profoundly impacts the public. The event was first held in 2008 during the term of NCBA/F President Janet Ward Black of Greensboro and has since taken on a life of its own. Hundreds of volunteer attorneys gather annually to take calls from thousands of North Carolinians who can speak to a lawyer for free during the event.
The 2018 4ALL Statewide Service Day is being led by Adam Arthur, an attorney with Kirkman Attorneys at Law in Greensboro, and Angie Dorsey, Director of Legal Aid’s Senior Law Project in Asheville, and is made possible through the generous support of donors to the NC Bar Foundation Endowment and Annual Fund.
Phone numbers for each call center will be promoted throughout the day by the TV stations hosting call centers. In instances where stations are not hosting, WRAL-TV will display the Fayetteville phone number and WFMY News 2 will advertise the Greensboro phone number.
Please note that the phone numbers should only be accessed during the prescribed hours of the event, and that the statewide service day is a telephone-only program.
The 4ALL Statewide Service Day is presented by the NC Bar Foundation as a public service to the citizens of North Carolina, and no attorney-client or business relationships may be established through this program.
