Alston + Bird LLP lends a hand

June 21, 2010

We’re feeling the volunteer love!

Last week, a team from Alston + Bird LLP, led by Blas Arroyo, who’s on our Board of Directors, stopped by our Retail Operations Center to help process donations. The group managed to package 13 gaylords (bulk bins used to store and ship in bulk) worth of donations, that will head to our retail stores and eventually be priced and placed on the sales floor. Here’s the team, flanked by Goodwill team members Michelle Daley, Manager of Donor Development, and Don Davis, Assistant Transportation Manager, still looking great, even after four hours of hard work!

Part of the firm’s Pro Bono Week, Alson + Bird also collected donations of gently-used clothing and housewares, raised nearly $300 by asking employees who wanted to wear jeans to work on Casual Day to make a donation of at least $5, and even offered “Ask a Lawyer” services to Goodwill team members.

“It’s really important to our organization to be able to give back to the community,” said Chandra Clouden, one of the volunteers.

Thanks so much to Alston + Bird for all of your hard work!
