Cislo & Thomas LLP Builds a Home for a Needy Family in Baja

In May 2008, employees of Cislo & Thomas donated their entire weekend to building a home for a needy family of five in Baja, Mexico. In addition to providing the labor, the firm also donated all the funds to build the house. “Not only was it a great team-building exercise,” said Managing Partner Dan Cislo, “but it was gratifying to be able to give something to those less fortunate than us.” Legal Assistant Erin MacDonald was in charge of rounding up the Cislo volunteers, and did a superb job. The project was organized by Baja Christian Ministries, which selects the deserving families and coordinates volunteers to build houses in Mexico.
