East Texas Giving Day: What the Smith Co. Bar Foundation does and how can you help

East Texas Live

The Smith County Bar Foundation exists to further justice and the rule of law in Smith County, Texas by educating and serving its citizens.

The Foundation accomplishes these goals by:

  • establishing programs designed to educate members of the general public as to their legal rights and responsibilities
  • promoting and facilitating the exercise of the legal rights of the poor
  • serving the community through programs designed to assist those affected by the justice system

East Texas Giving Day is an 18-hour day of giving that provides critical funding for our area nonprofits. This year the date is April 27.
