Community Activities

Mr. Lawton serves on the Wallace Inn of Courts Charity Dinner Committee, which raises money for Make-A-Wish Foundation children each year during the holiday season. In 2011, this committee raised over $22,000, enabling two Make-A-Wish kids and their families to visit their chosen destinations.

Mr. Lawton has served for several years as a volunteer in the Family Literacy Program at St. Vincent De Paul Village in San Diego and at Mama's Kitchen (a non-profit agency which delivers meals to men, women and children affected by AIDS and other critical illnesses). He is a mentor at Nativity Prep Academy (a tuition-free, inner-city Catholic middle school for at-risk children in Logan Heights).
