Law firm seeks help for our neighbors

Posted in Gallatin News

The responsibilities we all share as Americans and as good citizens within our respective communities are important.

As we approach the upcoming holiday season, we, as a law firm, are reminded of how fortunate we are to live and work in this great county. However, despite our county's excellent reputation as one of the state's foremost marketplaces, its wealth, and its acclaimed growth, we still have those within our community who are in need.

We have many who are out of work, who have families to feed, or who may be elderly and simply do not have the resources to adequately provide food for themselves or their families.

We believe we have a responsibility to help our neighbors, who perhaps have not been as fortunate as we. To answer these calls for help within our community our law firm is initiating a campaign to facilitate the replenishing of local food bank shelves.

In the coming weeks our law firm plans to make an all-out effort through a special awareness campaign to encourage our citizenry to join with us in making contributions of cans of food and other nonperishable items to area churches and charities.

We want to ask you to help us with this very special project. This effort is about serving our community and coming to the aid of our neighbors.

We are also reminded at this time of year of how fortunate we are to be citizens of this great country. In just a few days we each will have the opportunity to perform one of our civic duties when we are asked to go to the polls and vote on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

We each plan to vote as do the other attorneys in our office and members of our staff. If you haven't already voted, we encourage you to do so. To vote is one of the most sacred privileges afforded by our great democracy. And it's the right thing to do.

Please join us in serving our community and helping our neighbors by donating cans of food to local churches and charities. To us it's much like voting. It's the right thing to do.
