White and Williams School Supply Drive Benefits Adopted Schools
White and Williams Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia and Wilmington offices held school supply drives to benefit each of its adopted schools. At the height of back-to-school season, lawyers and staff collected supplies including notebooks, markers, crayons, glue sticks and backpacks to donate to local public school students returning to classrooms after summer vacation. In addition to the supplies, firm members wrote encouraging messages to students, wishing them the best for the school year ahead.
The firm's Adopt-a-School Initiative began in 2012 as a way for the firm to give back to local communities, invest in education and provide a unique opportunity for lawyers and staff to engage through the investment of time, finances and resources. The firm has built relationships with a number of schools across different states since the initiative's inception, which have included donations of Google Chromebooks and classroom libraries, as well as visits from lawyers and staff for reading and career days. Most recently, the Lehigh Valley office began a two-year engagement with Thomas Jefferson Elementary School in Bethlehem, PA, kicking-off the adoption with the donation of funds to provide the school with an educationally based Lego Wall.
