At Rodriguez & Associates, our Bakersfield injury lawyers strive to serve our community both in and out of the courtroom. We know how important it is to give back through our local organizations and charities. By doing so, we can help those in need as well as strengthen the community we work and live in.
We are a drop-off location for their annual Christmas Toy and Shoe Drive for Farmworkers’ Kids. Celebration Nation is a nonprofit focused on helping the Indigenous/Latino Community.
The Sikh Women’s Run
Our firm proudly supported the 2022 Sikh Women’s Run. The Bakersfield Sikh Women’s Association’s annual 5K run provides scholarships to Kern County high school seniors and supports community programs. The theme for 2022’s run was “Walk for Hope” and we are happy to be a part of providing hope for a brighter, safer, and healthier future for our community.

The 8th Annual Kern County Sheriff’s Office Employees Benefit Association Honor Run supports the children of fallen Kern County Sheriff’s deputies. We sponsor this local 5K and 10K race with the proceeds going to support scholarships for the fallen deputies’ children and the Sheriff’s Activity League (SAL) children.
The East Bakersfield Festival
The East Bakersfield Festival at Jefferson Park in East Bakersfield aims to bring the community together, offering music, food, and fun for the whole family. We give our support to this local community event because we love to develop partnerships and engage with the people and organizations that make Bakersfield a welcoming and thriving community for all.
Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Burn Unit
In 2019, we made a donation of $200,000.00 to the Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Burn Unit and the Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Neuro Trauma Unit. We are passionate about this contribution because people in our community will be able to receive medical services locally without having to travel outside of Bakersfield!
