The Adams and Reese Jackson office continued its annual philanthropic tradition of collecting presents for the children of Wingard Home as they adopted “little lambs” to provide a better holiday season for children in need.
Wingard Home has been ministering to the homeless and needy of Jackson since 1990, and houses women, children, pregnant teens, men, and whole families who are homeless, living in dire straits, displaced, or abandoned. The nonprofit home works with each person on an individual basis by teaching them how to work hard and meet their needs themselves.
Adams and Reese adopted 20 kids for the little lamb project, plus one that employees collected money for to buy a baby bed, sheets, and other items. Other donated items included cleaning supplies, gloves, toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates, alcohol, peroxide and other needed items for the home.
After collecting the donations, the Adams and Reese Jackson office held a wrapping party and lunch at the office. Employees then brought the presents to the home on December 19th.
The holiday project was part of the Adams and Reese HUGS (Hope, Understanding, Giving and Support) community service and philanthropic program, which for 25 years has donated time and financial resources to more than 100 organizations throughout the law firm’s regional footprint.
Wingard Home is funded solely by donations from individuals, private foundations, and corporations.
