LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Firm Supports the Greater Boston Food Bank, Foodshare, Inc. of Hartford and the Boys and Girls Club of Newark
New York, NY – August 27, 2007 – Day Pitney LLP, a leading full-service law firm with offices in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Boston, and Washington, D.C., announced the completion of the firm’s annual initiative where partners and associates work with the firm’s
summer associates to support non-profit organizations in three Northeast cities.
“We are pleased to have once again supported our communities by involving our summer associates in the firm’s goal to give back locally,” said Hope Cone, co-chair of Day Pitney’s professional recruitment committee. “Meaningful public service needs to be grounded in action.
By taking an active part in our communities, we are able to form a stronger bond with our client base and grow as socially responsible attorneys.”
Each year, Day Pitney as a firm donates more than 2,000 hours of community service to local communities through volunteer activities and pro bono work. The summer associates’ participation in service events further strengthens the firm’s desire to advance a wide range of
educational, cultural and humanitarian causes. This year, the firm’s recent service activities supported the Greater Boston Food Bank, Hartford’s Foodshare, Inc., and the Boys & Girls
Clubs of Newark.
Greater Boston Food Bank: Boston summer associates inspected, sorted and repacked donated grocery products to be distributed to hunger relief agencies. The Greater Boston Food Bank distributes nearly 26 million pounds of food annually to agencies in a dedicated partnership to
feed the region’s hungry.
Foodshare, Inc.: At a local 4H Farm, Hartford summer associates aided local farmers in generating fresh produce for Foodshare, an organization that distributes 12 tons of food daily to nearly 400 charitable organizations, including community kitchens, emergency shelters, food
pantries, and other anti-hunger programs in the greater Hartford area.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Newark Summer Enrichment Program: New Jersey and New York summer associates assisted in a variety of program areas for the Summer Enrichment Program, a Boys & Girls Club program that aims to empower Newark youths to support their community,
maintain healthy, active lifestyles, and develop their creativity and cultural awareness.
“We are proud to develop a program for our summer associates that provides the foundation for a
career in law, while also emphasizing the core values our firm represents,” said Dennis LaFiura, co-chair of Day Pitney’s executive committee. “It’s our privilege to serve organizations like the Greater Boston Food Bank, Hartford’s Foodshare, Inc. and the Boy’s & Girls Club of Newark, and we’re delighted to have had a bright and energetic group of summer associates contributing to these efforts.”
