  • Bringing Christmas Cheer to Senior Citizens

    On December 26, 2015, I volunteered with the Armenian Church Youth Organization of America from the St. John’s Armenian Church in Southfield, Michigan.

  • Spreading Holiday Cheer to Children’s Hospital

    The Sunday before Christmas of 2015
    these Clark Hill employees were nobly seen.
    They felt the spirit of the holidays deep in their hearts
    and they wanted to share it in the most possible parts.
    They worked with a hospital to provide kids with a gift
    in hopes that this season their spirits will lift.
    Provided with a goal and determination in their minds
    these Clark Hill elves left work and started their grinds.
    They shopped and they searched stores far and wide
    to find the perfect presents wherever they hide.
    Once gathered and collected, the DC office bundled near
    bagging gifts and donations in numbers to fear!
    There were board games and legos and toys for tots
    there were too many to count – lots upon lots!
    After the Holiday Party, hosted by Ken and Carly,
    the gifts were given to the hospital, by Regina and Charlie.
    This act started in the heart of this office of Clark Hill
    and outreached into the community with every crevice to fill.
    From our office to yours we wish you joy this season
    and may you laugh and smile for so many reasons.

    Happy Holidays from the Washington DC office
    and the Children’s National Hospital in Washington DC.

  • Remembering Those Who Served

    I had the privilege of joining many others to lay wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery. More than 10,000 wreaths were contributed to remember those who served our nation. A truly awe inspiring and memorable experience.

  • Feeding the Homeless at Thanksgiving

    With the holiday season rapidly approaching and twelve thousand people without a place to spend the holidays, three individuals, on behalf of the Clark Hill Washington DC office, answered the calling to help those in need. Francina Faulkner, Michael Meeks, and the newest Office Manager, Regina Blackmon, using the surplus food from our Thanksgiving Holiday Potluck, prepared meals and distributed them to families in need within the Penn Quarter neighborhood. The Thanksgiving festivities, led by Office Partner, Charlie Spies, and beautifully orchestrated by Regina Blackmon, extended beyond the work environment and into the hearts of those within reach. With much appreciation to the generosity of the Clark Hill employees who contributed homemade dishes, these three Samaritans were able to spread the holiday cheer to 40 additional families in the area. The feedback from the public was heartwarming in the sense that it further solidified the status of Clark Hill as a meaningful contributor to the Washington community.
