You may recall that we mentioned last month that the staff and lawyers at Beasley Allen would be supporting five groups over the Christmas holidays. Wendi Lewis supplied the results of this hard work and I am highly pleased with all that was done. The projects were highly successful, lots of folks benefited, and our firm was blessed to have been able to help them.
Capitol Hill Nursing Home
Capitol Hill is a nursing home in downtown Montgomery. Each Christmas they put up an Angel Tree with the resident’s Christmas wish list. Beasley Allen employee Theresa Perkins led the campaign again this year with great success. Beasley Allen staff and lawyers adopted 150 residents! That means 150 people, who might not have received a gift, a card or even a visit during Christmas, knew that someone really cares for them at this most special time of year. Thank you, Theresa, and everyone who adopted an angel from Capitol Hill.
For many years Willa Carpenter has led the blanket and jacket drive for the homeless served by Friendship Mission. Each year we are so proud of what Willa is able to accomplish with the help of Beasley Allen staff and lawyers. This year is no exception. Willa collected 139 items for the homeless that can be worn or used by them. This will benefit folks in real need on a daily basis. In addition to these things, dozens of toiletries were given. We appreciate Willa’s hard work and also the participation by our staff and lawyers who contributed to such a worthy cause.
This year the children of Adullum House voted to go on a trip to Gatlinburg, Tenn., instead of receiving presents for Christmas. This was the first time many of the children have been on a vacation or a family trip. Fifty-seven children and adults made the trip. Thanks to Angela Talley and all of the staff and lawyers at Beasley Allen who contributed. Angela was able to take a nice gift card to help with incidentals along the way.
United Cerebral Palsy Christmas Casual Day
Beasley Allen employees helped raise funds and awareness for United Cerebral Palsy of Central Alabama (UCP) by participating in Christmas Casual Day on Dec. 13. According to UCP leadership, our firms staff and lawyers donated more than any other participating group in the Central Alabama region! Project organizer Mandy Cook was delighted at the response and she thanked everyone for their support. This was a tremendous effort.
Family Sunshine Center Christmas
In addition to our Thanksgiving dinner project, Angela Talley organized the effort to provide food for six families from the Family Sunshine Center who needed our help and blessing over the Christmas holidays. Lawyers adopted families and donated non-perishable food products, turkey and ham to ensure these families would have food on the table this year. The Family Sunshine Center provides a safe haven for women and their children who are victims of domestic violence. Six worthy families did not go hungry during the holidays because of the generosity of our lawyers and the hard work by Angela.
It’s a good feeling to know that our staff and lawyers supported each of the projects mentioned above. They showed their concern for folks who needed help during the holiday season and went the extra mile to make sure the projects were successful. This sort of things is an indication that our folks understand the real meaning of Christmas.
