Quarles & Brady’s Indianapolis Office Partners with Shepherd Community Center for Summer Hunger Drive06/06/16
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP today announced that from now until June 30, the Indianapolis office will be raising funds and collecting food, hygiene, and household items for the Shepherd Community Center.
This initiative is aligned with the firm's Quarles Cares program, which supports causes and nonprofits chosen by attorneys and staff in each office—with a particular focus on hunger and education. Last year with the combined efforts of employees, family, friends and clients, the firmwide summer hunger campaign raised equivalent funds to provide nearly 130,000 meals to hungry children and families across hometown office locations.
"Last year, we delivered a U-Haul truck full of donations," said Linden Barber, Quarles & Brady's Indianapolis office managing partner. "We're hoping to do the same this year. The office is committed to the Shepherd Community Center and the Indianapolis community."
Joel Tragesser notes, "This campaign will be successful because of the generous support of our friends at Arizona Sport Shirts, BMO Harris Bank, Centier Bank, Circle City Reporting, College Mentors for Kids, Harnish Agency Nationwide Insurance, Indiana Members Credit Union, Indiana Mills & Manufacturing, Inc. ("IMMI"), Indianapolis Signworks, Indy Chamber, Indy Fuel, JMI-CSM, Pan Testing, the Oak Manor Neighborhood in Westfield, OfficeTeam-RobertHalf, Sondhi-Biggs-Hansen Orthodontics, and Verdure Sciences."
