Robinson & Cole lawyers and staff volunteered more than 325 hours at 22 events across 10 nonprofit organizations based in Boston, Hartford, New York, Providence and Stamford, Conn., this past summer.
Volunteers in Providence helped the Rhode Island Community Food Bank with their warehouse operations by stocking shelves, sorting food and checking expiration dates. The effort is part of the firm‚Äôs ‚ÄúSummer of Service‚ÄĚ program, which aids organizations with providing resources to people in need.
‚ÄúOur Summer of Service program was a new and different way for the attorneys and staff of Robinson & Cole to come together and support each other while helping organizations in our communities that do so much to provide essential resources for people in need,‚ÄĚ said John H. Kane, chair of the firm‚Äôs Diversity Committee.
The firm‚Äôs Diversity Committee and Women‚Äôs Committee co-sponsored the program, identifying organizations in each community that had volunteer needs during business hours and coordinating the participation of all the volunteers. ‚ÄĘ
