As part of Ford’s First Annual Legal Alliance for Women (L.A.W.) Global Day of Service, employees at Gibson, McAskill & Crosby, spent their morning volunteering at the Food Bank of Western New York. They worked on the labeling of some donation bins, packaged food to be distributed, and got to learn about all the great programs the Food Bank benefits throughout Western New York.
Throughout the month of September, the firm ran a food drive which collected more than 450 lbs in food donations along with an additional monetary donation!! This food drive was aimed at helping to support the Food Bank’s Baby Needs Program, BackPack Program and School Pantry Program. These programs help aid and empower 4,516 infants and over 2,900 school children. It was incredible to learn about the nutrition education now offered by the Food Bank which teaches adults and children the importance of practical and sound nutrition.
It was a rewarding experience that the Ford team members at Gibson, McAskill & Crosby will not soon forget and will take with them in the future!
