Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers has helped make the season brighter for families in need by donating 316 pounds of food to the Connecticut Food Bank. The food was collected during the law firm’s first annual food drive to benefit the statewide nonprofit organization.
The practice accepted food donations at its five locations- Bridgeport, Hartford, New London, Waterbury and Woodbridge. A team from Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers personally delivered the bounty to the Connecticut Food Bank’s warehouse in Bridgeport on December 18th. The hundreds of pounds of food equate to 216 meals that will feed residents across the state.
“I want to thank all of our employees, community members and partners who made this effort so successful,” said National Trial Lawyers member Jonathan Perkins. “This first collection exceeded our expectations and the generosity shown by everyone involved will go a long way in assisting our neighbors.”
The Connecticut Food Bank works through a network of nearly 700 community food assistance programs, including soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters to provide nutritious food to people in need in six of Connecticut’s eight counties: Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Windham. They are an affiliate of Feeding America, the nation’s food bank network.
Cynthia Sandoval, a Procurement Assistance rep at Connecticut Food Bank, voiced her appreciation for Perkins’ efforts. “We are so grateful for the contribution and were overwhelmed upon seeing the size of the delivery that was made. This effort is going to positively affect so many communities during the season of giving.”
