Broward Partnership for the Homeless, Inc. (BPHI); SOS Children's Villages - Florida; and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County are just three of the non-profit organizations that the law firm of Brinkley Morgan aided in spreading cheer and good will during this holiday season.
Broward Partnership for the Homeless, Inc. (BPHI)
In support of BHPI, which is committed to reducing homelessness by promoting independence through advocacy, housing and comprehensive services, Brinkley Morgan held a drive and collected hundreds of ties and shoes to help provide suitable attire for homeless men and women to wear to job interviews.
"Brinkley Morgan's generous donations will help give homeless men and women the professional appearance and confidence to be successful on job interviews in the workplace, which is an important step toward rebuilding their lives," said BPHI Director of Development Berne Teeple.
Brinkley Morgan Partner Kenneth A. Gordon, who serves on the BPHI board of directors added, "We recognize the importance of BPHI's mission and the critical need to help the homeless living in South Florida."
SOS Children's Villages - Florida
To help brighten the holidays for the children at the SOS Children's Villages - Florida campus in Coconut Creek, more than 20 Brinkley Morgan attorneys and staff from Brinkley Morgan, rolled up their sleeves and strung festive lights for all of the residents to enjoy.
"This was a great afternoon and a perfect opportunity to decorate the homes of the foster children in our community who have had a rough start in life," said Brinkley Morgan Partner Bill Kramer, who participated in the event.
SOS Children's Villages - Florida provides care for foster children in Broward County and has raised more than 250 children since 1993.
"SOS Children's Villages - Florida does an amazing job with these kids and bringing the holiday spirit to others is what this season is all about," said Brinkley Morgan Legal Assistant Kaley Lombardo, who organized the event.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County
Brinkley Morgan works every year with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County and "adopts" a family in need during the holidays. This year, a family of five, including two boys, ages 8 and 10, and a girl, age 8, had their wishes come true.
The whole family received bicycles and helmets from the Boys & Girls Clubs, while Brinkley Morgan employees took care of everything else on the family's wish list, including clothes, shoes, board games, a skateboard, a football, a Tinker Bell toy and gift certificates worth more than $200.
"The 9-year-old boy wanted a pet fish, so we made sure to include a gift certificate to Pet Supermarket, as well as other retail outlets including Barnes & Noble, Target and GameStop," said Brinkley Morgan Partner, Harris Solomon, who is a past president and former board member of the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County. "We realize that there are so many in our community who need assistance all year long, but there's no greater feeling than bringing happiness to children during the holidays."
Brinkley Morgan is committed to serving the South Florida community. Brinkley Morgan Cares, the firm's ongoing charitable campaign, supports a number of causes and local non-profits to help people in need. To learn more, please visit facebook.com/BrinkleyMorganCares.
