White and Williams Employees Donate School Supplies to Philadelphia Public School
During the month of August, White and Williams collected school supplies generously donated by its lawyers and staff to support Spring Garden Elementary School, a Philadelphia Public school with approximately 300 students. The school supplies collected ranged from writing utensils and paper, to calculators and backpacks, as well as school uniforms and classroom supplies. Collecting school supplies is just one way the firm has partnered with the school.
White and Williams launched its “Adopt a School” initiative in 2012 as a way to give back to the community, invest in education, and provide a unique opportunity for lawyers and staff to engage through the investment of time, finances and resources. Last year, the firm supported extracurriculars, awarded college scholarships and taught a course on legal career options.
"As a proud member of the Philadelphia business community, we are committed to its viability and started the Adopt a School initiative as a means of supporting our city, its families and, most importantly, its students," said Guy Celucci, Managing Partner of the firm. "By arming students with the tools they need to succeed, we can inspire Philadelphia's future business leaders."
White and Williams officially "adopted" Spring Garden Elementary School on March 22, 2013 with a $10,000 donation toward the reestablishment of the school's library. The library had been closed for ten years due to a lack of books and major renovation needs. The firm also supported Spring Garden by hosting a career day in the Philadelphia office for 7th grade girls in the "Girls Unite" program.
