The Adams and Reese Jackson office held a March Clothes Drive to benefit the Madison Countians Allied Against Poverty (MadCAAP) nonprofit organization, which is dedicated to assisting families living in poverty in Madison County. Employees donated clothes to help replenish the organization’s clothes closet.
MadCAAP was founded in 1985 by Sister Grace Mary McGuire who assembled some citizens concerned about the needs of the large population of people living in poverty in Madison County. Through the first few years, MadCAAP realized that education, housing and emergency assistance were the biggest needs. These programs have continued to expand over the past 28 years.
In 2013, MadCAAP served more than 3,000 families and operated a Clothing Closet, Food Pantry, Housing Repair and Krista Cottage Program, Helping Hands Garden and New Attitudes Classes.
MadCAAP is one of several organizations that is a part of the Adams and Reese HUGS (Hope, Understanding, Giving and Support) employee volunteer and corporate philanthropy program, which donates financial resources and volunteer hours to more than 200 community organizations in need across the law firm's regional footprint in seven states.
