Giving Back

Giving Back to
our Oklahoma Community

At Maples, Nix, & Diesselhorst, family and community are at the core of what we do. It is our goal to be productive members of our community by helping those around us. While normally done anonymously, one of our favorite contributions is the annual Backpack Drive. 

Annual Backpack Drive

For the past five years before the COVID-19 outbreak, Maples, Nix, & Diesselhorst has participated in a joint venture with Graves McClain, a law firm in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Every year, our community comes together to raise money for backpacks and pass them out to children from pre-K to 5th grade in Title I schools.

This backpack drive would not be possible without the support of surrounding law firms in Oklahoma, our community,, and our team’s family members.

A Little Goes a Long Way

Backpacks may seem trivial compared to school supplies or books. However, backpacks not only lighten the physical load for students but also lighten the emotional load. Our goal is to create an inclusive and inviting environment by providing these students with backpacks.

In a thank you note that we received, a little boy thanked us for his backpack and shared how he gave it to his little brother. It is stories like these that we want to be a part of and share.

If our family can make a small impact on another family, then we are doing our part to make our Oklahoma community a better place– one backpack at a time.
