HOLMES COUNTY – The local law firm of Manuel and Thompson organized a weekly event with area food trucks to encourage additional business for these local small businesses while at the same time, to raise money for a worthy cause.   Together with these food trucks they created a Manuel and Thompson special meal of the week.  A portion of each of these meals purchased have been committed to the Gulf Coast Children’s Advocacy Center.    

Gulf Coast Children’s Advocacy Center has transformed the lives of victims of child abuse and sexual violence by offering a refuge for victims and their families to cope with the terrible crimes of child abuse and sexual assault while reducing the fear and further trauma that disclosure and investigation often creates.

The law firm of Manuel & Thompson have consistently supported numerous area charities including the Gulf Coast Children’s Advocacy Center. This month and while helping other small businesses they have raised and contributed a check to the Gulf Coast Children’s Advocacy Center in the amount of $ 1,000.00. 

Waylon Thompson of Manuel & Thompson is available for radio, print, and television interviews to help get the word out to the community and let them know how important it is to ensure that each child has a coat for winter.
