The staff from Cleveland law firm Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA, is doing its part to help create stronger, more stable families this summer by volunteering at a local nonprofit that serves at-risk local children and families in crisis.
As part of its ongoing commitment to the Cleveland community, all of Lowe Eklund Wakefield's attorneys and staff are spending June 12 volunteering for a one-day service project with Providence House, a crisis nursery that provides emergency shelter, basic needs, clothing and other personal items.
"In looking for an organization that does amazing work right here in the Cleveland area, Providence House stood out as the perfect fit for our mission to give back to the community," said Meghan P. Connolly, a partner attorney at Lowe Eklund Wakefield. "They have helped thousands of children and families. I'm excited to offer our support and see this life-changing work in person. We're all looking forward to getting our hands dirty and working together as a team for such a great cause."
Providence House depends on volunteers to "support our children, our events, and an array of projects and services throughout the year." The "Done in a Day" projects include landscaping, interior and exterior painting, and playground cleaning and repair, and are a great team-building opportunity for business groups.
Providence House offers free, voluntary (non-custodial) emergency shelter to children newborn through 12 years old, actively living in crisis situations that place them at risk of abuse or neglect. Providence House has cared and advocated for over 8,000 children and families in crisis throughout its 37-year history.
Providence House is Ohio's first and one of the nation's longest operating crisis nurseries among the 70-plus in operation in North America. The organization offers free, voluntary (non-custodial) emergency shelter to children newborn through 12 years old, actively living in crisis situations that place them at risk of abuse or neglect.
In addition to donating its time, the law firm will make monetary donation of $2 to Providence House for each new Like of its Facebook page until the end of June. Learn more about Providence House on their website.
