At the Pels Law Firm, we strongly believe in giving back to our community, whether that be through volunteering our time or through financial giving. These are just a few examples of causes we support.
Andy Talley Bone Marrow Foundation
Pels Law is a proud donor to the Andy Talley Bone Marrow Foundation. Jon Pels played Football at Villanova for Coach Talley in the late 1980s. Andy Talley started this foundation upon learning that bone marrow matches for transplants were very difficult to obtain and asked his football players to volunteer. What started as a match project at Villanova has spread across the country to many collegiate programs and has helped save many lives.
Yellow Ribbon Fund Events
Jon Pels has been involved over the past years in helping to raise thousands of dollars at local Yellow Ribbon Fund Events. The Yellow Ribbon Funds serves our injured service members as they return home from battlefields by, among other things, helping to keep the family together during the critical recuperation phase.
Youth Leadership Foundation
Jon Pels has helped raise money for the Youth Leadership Foundation at the Johnny Holiday Classic Golf Tournament. The Youth Leadership Foundation builds character among youth of our Nation’s Capital by serving 350 students annually with its quality mentoring programs in seven school partners across the city.
