Quarles Cares

Through our Quarles Cares volunteer initiatives, we provide opportunities for attorneys and staff to commit themselves personally to civic and charitable efforts. Our primary areas of emphasis are projects that relate to hunger and education, but whatever the cause, the focus of this program is hands-on volunteerism. In 2015 we embarked on our first firmwide initiative to address the issue of summer hunger. We were dismayed to learn that the need is greater during the summer months when children don’t have access to their schools’ free and reduced-cost meal programs. With the help of our attorneys, associates, clients, and communities, in our first Summer Hunger Initiative each of our 10 offices collectively provided nearly 130,000 meals to hungry children and families through the following organizations:

  • A Just Harvest (Chicago)
  • Shepherd Community Center (Indianapolis)
  • Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin (Madison)
  • Hunger Task Force (Milwaukee)
  • St. Matthew’s House (Naples)
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix
  • End 68 Hours of Hunger (Tampa)
  • Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona (Tucson)
  • Capital Area Food Bank (Washington, D.C.)

Additional community organizations we supported firmwide through our Quarles Cares program include:

  • Blessings in a Backpack – Jenner Academy of the Arts (Chicago)
  • American Lung Association (Indianapolis)
  • Second Helpings (Indianapolis)
  • United Way of Dane County (Madison)
  • Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Dane County (Madison)
  • Open Door Ministry (Milwaukee)
  • Benjamin Franklin School (Milwaukee)
  • Camp Boggy Creek (Naples)
  • Golden Terrace Elementary (Naples)
  • Capitol Elementary School (Phoenix)
  • Crisis Response Network, Inc. (Phoenix)
  • Night Ministry (Chicago)
  • Everyday Blessings (Tampa)
  • Carrillo K-5 Magnet School
  • Voices of Children (Tampa)
  • Children’s Village (Tucson)
