TUCSON, ARIZ. - Quarles & Brady LLP today announced it is a finalist for the El Rio Community Health Center Community Service award, honoring a Southern Arizona business that demonstrates extraordinary civic leadership. The award winner will be announced at the annual Copper Cactus Awards event, which recognizes business leadership across the region.
Quarles & Brady's community activities in Southern Arizona are part of the firm's national community service program, called Quarles Cares.

The groups served by the Quarles Cares-Tucson team include the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, Tucson Metropolitan Ministries' Family Services, Inc./Children's Village and the Carrillo K-5 Magnet School Reading Program.
In addition to the hands-on volunteer work performed by Quarles & Brady's Tucson office employees, the firm's attorneys provide extensive pro bono legal services.
