Parker Poe recently teamed up with dozens of clients to volunteer more than 560 hours – in a single day.
Attorneys, staff, and clients spread out across the Carolinas and Georgia on March 20 to read to elementary school students, organize school supplies, pack care kits, garden, build a house, prepare meals, clean furniture, and much more. It was a day to give back, as Parker Poe hosted its second annual Community Service Day across all seven of the cities where the firm has offices.
“I think it’s great that Parker Poe organized this,” said Brian Burden of Wells Fargo, who helped unload donated doors and windows at Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Charlotte. “If more organizations got their hands dirty and did this kind of volunteer work, it would make a big difference.”
Approximately 225 Parker Poe attorneys, staff, and clients took part. They served 12 nonprofit and service organizations to help raise awareness about each organization's mission and to provide support for the programs of each partnering organization:
