*** Pro Bono Spotlight — URGENT!
Metro Volunteer Lawyers needs an attorney to assist a client in obtaining a title for the car she purchased. The client purchased a car in June 2008, finished paying for it in November 2008 and the seller still hasn’t transferred the title to her. The client took her car to be repaired at the same place she purchased it; it was stolen from that location and stripped for parts. Now, the insurance company will not issue a check until she has the title. If you can assist this client, contact Patricia Trujillo at (303) 866-9307 or

*** Donate Gifts of Warmth for Melissa by Aug. 18
