Giving Back To The Community

Carr & Carr Donate To Homeless Alliance

In 2019, Carr and Carr Attorneys partnered with the Homeless Alliance of Oklahoma City and Red Coyote Running to host the inaugural Fun Run to raise shoe donations and monetary donations for our homeless neighbors.

The need for help in our homeless community is greater than ever during the Coronavirus. Unfortunately, the Coronavirus also limits our ability to host a fun run this year while still practicing social distancing and protecting our team and the community.

This year we will adapt to the new circumstances and will donate $2,500 to help the Homeless Alliance buy the essential needs they have to operate. We also want to spread the word of need to our communities.

Immediate Needs

Hygiene packs: in a gallon-size Ziploc bag include soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste.

Summer packs: with the hot months upon us a summer pack is easy and inexpensive to put together: sunscreen, insect repellent, deodorant, chapstick.

Additional donation items include:

  • Masks to be handed out to our day shelter guests
    • Alcohol wipes
    • Men’s Underwear
    • Deodorant
    • Hand sanitizer
    • Soap
    • Shampoo & conditioner (travel and large sizes)
    • Toothbrushes & toothpaste
    • Sunscreen
    • ChapStick
    • Vaseline
    • Insect repellent
    • Disposable razors
    • Combs
    • Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Aspirin, allergy pills
    • Antibiotic ointment
    • Band-Aids
    • Cotton balls and cotton swabs

How You Can Donate

Deliver your donations to the Resource Center lobby between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is located at 1729 N.W. 3rd Street (one block east of Penn on N.W. 3rd) in OKC.

Monetary Donations Help The Most

Monetary donations are the most impactful for the shelters. They are able to take a monetary donation and stretch it much further than the individual. The shelters can buy in bulk needs and save thousands of dollars doing so. A monetary donation can be made online at http://bit.ly/donateHA

Volunteer Opportunities

Although what you might be able to do during the covid-19 pandemic might look different than what it has in the past, there is still a need for volunteers. To get involved and give back please contact: [email protected]

Asbestos In The US

When, Where, And Why It Was Used

Asbestos is defined as a heat-resistant fibrous silicate mineral that can be woven into fabrics and is used in fire-resistant and insulating materials such as brake linings.

Who uses Asbestos?

The United States is one of the few major industrialized nations without an asbestos ban in place. It continues to be used in gaskets, friction products, roofing materials, fireproofing materials, and other products that are used every day.

More than 50 countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and all 28 countries of the European Union, have banned the use of asbestos.

Everything You Need to Know About Rideshare Accidents

When you need to get somewhere but don’t want to drive or take public transit, “taking an Uber” or “taking a Lyft” is probably your go-to option.

Many people use ridesharing services to get where they need to go. About 36 percent of American adults say they used a ridesharing service at least once, as of 2018. That’s more than double the number of Americans who said the same in 2015.

However, there’s an area of ridesharing services that seem vague and obscured: rideshare accidents.

How are drivers and passengers protected if an accident occurs? Who’s at fault, or responsible for insurance coverage?

Know Your Recall Rights

What to Do If You’re Injured by a Recalled Product

Consumers are surrounded by products we rely on in our day-to-day lives.

Our vehicles get us where we need to go. We use appliances to keep our clothes, dishes, and homes clean. Some of us depend on medical devices to keep us in good health.

Unfortunately, when these products fail, people can get injured especially if the product has been recalled. 

If you’ve suffered from an injury from a recalled product, you may be able to start a claim and receive compensation. However, product liability claims and product recalls can be complex and confusing. Read on to learn more about how the process works.
