The holiday season is a time to celebrate all that we have been given and to help folks who are not as fortunate. There are many in our community who struggle to put food on the table and to meet the basic needs of their family every single day. For many years the employees at Beasley Allen have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that they do their part to help others. This year our firm’s staff and lawyers supported six organizations. Each effort was spearheaded by one or more of our employees. I will describe each charity project, along with the persons in charge, below.
Capitol Hill Nursing Home
Theresa Perkins organized a wonderful assortment of gifts for 100 residents of Capitol Hill Nursing Home in Montgomery. For many years now the firm has “adopted” residents to provide a gift for those who will not receive a gift and will likely not be visited by anyone. Theresa and her many helpers visit with the residents and pass out gifts including socks, pajamas, hats, and perfumes. The residents of Capitol Hill always enjoy visiting with our staff.
Family Sunshine Center
Angela Talley, Mary Jane Smitherman, and Michelle Bailey started the season by gathering a Thanksgiving meal and food to sustain several families who are currently being served by the Family Sunshine Center. Once Thanksgiving festivities passed they started work gathering toys for the children of those families. These ladies, along with all who supported the cause, were a true blessing to the families who received help this year.
Compassion 21 Food Pantry
Brandi Lucio led the charge for a new campaign this year. Brandi raised money for the Compassion 21 food pantry. Compassion 21 serves poor and homeless in the Montgomery area with counseling and a food pantry. The money raised by the firm will be used by the organization to purchase food from the Montgomery Area Food Bank at a discounted rate. With record numbers of people receiving assistance this year, the monetary donations were very much welcome.
Willa Carpenter once again took over the project involving donations for The Friendship Mission. Willa has worked with the Friendship Mission homeless shelter and soup kitchen. Many blankets, socks, coats, and other various necessities were gathered to help ease the burden of those who live on the streets. This is an organization that Willa holds dear to her heart as she volunteers and helps to fill needs throughout the year.
Family Guidance Center
Helen Taylor worked with lawyers in the firm to provide Christmas for 14 children who are currently enrolled in the Family Guidance Center “Success by Six” program. This program is supported year-round by Judge Jimmy Pool and was designed to help parents of children ages 3-6 learn valuable skills to improve the education success rates of their children. Parents learn parenting skills; ways to help their child succeed in school with positive study habits, as well as training in personal finance to ensure that they take the knowledge with them that they need to improve their family situation.
Helen Taylor and Kristin Piatek also coordinated a toy and everyday necessities donation to 12 children from an area elementary school. These children are at risk, several are living in homeless shelters or with non-parental caregivers and would have otherwise not received any gifts this Christmas. Thanks to the overwhelming response from our staff an lawyers not only did the children get several toys to enjoy they also received undergarments, hats, gloves, toiletries, and snacks to help ease their way.
A very special thank-you to all of the folks in our firm who donated their time, money and gifts to these good causes. Many families were able to enjoy the holidays because the lawyers and employees at Beasley Allen cared enough to give so they these families could enjoy Christmas.
