Millar & Mixon, LLC staff believe that serving and assisting those that have been injured by the negligence of someone else is very momentous but so is helping those neighbors that are in need. We believe in helping our local communities thrive and making the world a better place for our families and the generations to come by helping when we are called upon and many times, even when we’re not.
Our firm has been in the south metro area for 20 years and has always desired to help local charities, fundraisers; from little leagues to specialty hospitals. We have donated money to the Project Walk Foundation, Salvation Army Summer Camp programs, and other Clayton County youth organizations, to name a few and look to give additional help each year. As our firm has grown so much in the recent years, we hope to be able to focus more on these community efforts as more time and resources have become available these past two decades. In 2014 we will begin a scholarship program for local students that will be awarded to two individuals in need of financial assistance and exemplify extraordinary skills within their school and community.
Please help us with our efforts and if you know of local charities or organizations that may be in need, submit an online submission to inform and keep us up to date. If you are able to donate to some of the charities below, please click on that charities link, find out more and donate today!
