Glasser and Glasser, P.L.C, was awarded the 2013 Community Service Award for its commitment and dedication in contributing to the betterment of its community by the National Association of Retail Collection Attorneys (NARCA) at its recent Fall 2013 conference held in Washington, D.C. The firm’s employees and attorneys volunteered their time and raised money for a number of causes throughout the year including, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Legal Food Frenzy campaign, and Soles4Souls organization.
In support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s “Over the Edge” event, Glasser partner Mark Groves volunteered to rappel down a 200 foot building while the firm’s other attorneys and employees rallied to the cause by raising $2,000 towards granting wishes for children with life threatening medical conditions. NARCA made an additional $1,000 donation to the Foundation on behalf of Glasser and Glasser in recognition of their 2013 Community Service Award.
Groves noted “The Make-A-Wish foundation touches the hearts of many and several of our employees have gone on to receive additional “Wish Granter” training and participated in other events. The foundation brings out the best in people and we are proud to support it and other good causes for our community.”
In addition to its work with the foundation, Glasser and Glasser once again competed in the 7th annual Virginia Legal Food Frenzy campaign, raising donations of canned-goods and cash in support of local homeless shelters and food banks. Firm employees also volunteered their time at the food bank to help pack and distribute meals.
Supporting those in need, both in the U.S. and abroad, Glasser staff worked with the Soles4Souls organization this Summer to solicit and collect over 250 pairs of shoes which were distributed to victims of natural disasters and others in need.
“We are blessed with the opportunity to be of service to our community and extend our special thanks to all our staff who so generously participated throughout the year,” said Groves.
