Burnham Brown maintains a strong commitment to our community. Some of the groups we proudly sponsor include:
Alameda County Community Food Bank Burnham Brown is a proud major sponsor of the Alameda County Community Food Bank. The mission of the food bank is to alleviate hunger by providing nutritious food and nutrition education to people in need, educating the public and promoting public policies that address hunger and its root causes. Burnham Brown's commitment to breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty includes staff food sorting volunteer days at the food bank and food drive sponsorships. Burnham Brown attorneys and employees have participated in multiple food drives for the Alameda County Food Bank and have collected monetary donations on their behalf.
Alice Street Learning Center started the Burnham Brown "Adopt a Preschooler" program where participants provide new clothes and toys to these disadvantaged preschoolers at The Alice Street Learning Center in Oakland. The firm also held a Preschool Book Drive to provide new books for "our" preschoolers at the Learning Center, and for the Learning Center itself.
Legal Assistance for Seniors Burnham Brown supports the Legal Assistance for Seniors Program, which is dedicated to ensuring the independence and dignity of seniors through legal advice and representation, senior education, and the Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy Program (HICAP).
