Since 2012, people around the globe have used #GivingTuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, to give back to their communities as a kick-off to the Christmas giving season. This year Beasley Allen Law Firm is joining those around the United States and in more than 90 other countries on #GivingTuesday as we show our support and appreciation for the nonprofits and businesses that aid our communities.
As part of #GivingTuesday, Beasley Allen began its charitable donations on Nov. 28 for this Christmas season and will continue to donate to a different cause each week until Christmas. Beasley Allen employees collected and delivered toy donations for the Hands of Christ Ministry’s Toy Store. This ministry sets up a “store” where those who qualify will be able to purchase our donated toys for ages 3-16 at extremely discounted prices in order to allow them to feel the joy of providing Christmas for their families. Thanks to the donations from our staff, Beasley Allen was able to donate toys to 75 children in the River Region.
Beasley Allen will be continuing the spirit of #GivingTuesday each week until Christmas by donating to the following:
- Capitol Hill Healthcare—Each year Capitol Hill puts up an angel tree for its residents. Beasley Allen employees will be giving presents to 90 of those angels this Christmas season. These gifts often include items the residents need such as clothing, socks, and hygiene products.
- Friendship Mission—The Friendship Mission houses approximately 100 men, women and children living in two shelters in the River Region. They serve approximately 8,000 meals each month between the two shelters. Beasley Allen will provide 35 Bath and Body Works gift sets and necessities like socks, gloves, hats, deodorant, toothpaste, etc. to be distributed at the shelters this Christmas.
- Family Sunshine Center—The center has served victims and survivors of family violence in the River Region for 35 years. As with the nursing home and mission, Beasley Allen has long supported the Sunshine Center’s work in our community. This year we will donate necessities like clothes and shoes as well as presents for six families.
“The organizations we are supporting this season provide invaluable services to the River Region, and while we support many throughout the year, Christmas giving is especially important to us here at the firm,” Beasley Allen managing partner Tom Methvin said. “We thank these agencies for the great work they do.”
