“This day of service is a great way to serve our community, by taking some time out of our everyday lives and giving back to the community in which we live and work. It has been heartwarming to see the generosity of the entire firm as we ran a drive for needed food and toiletry items to benefit the needs of domestic violence victims and their children. We are a firm that prides itself on its founding principles of building relationships and that includes the community at-large outside of our everyday legal practice.” Jenna McDonnell, Esq.

Bringing together volunteers from more than eight countries, this day of service is a collective effort to give back to the communities Ford and its partners operate in.
“Through this day of service, we are aiming to marshal the collective efforts of our partners in the legal profession around world to give back to the community,” said Beth Rose, Chief Compliance, Ethics and Integrity Officer at Ford Motor Company and chairperson of Ford’s Legal Alliance for Women. “The passion we share in advocating for and serving our communities extends beyond this one day.
