FORT LAUDERDALE — To keep the spirit of generosity and giving alive through the holidays, attorneys and staff at the South Florida law firm of Brinkley Morgan recently held a food drive for the Pantry of Broward, a local non-profit dedicated to serving elderly residents in need.
“We are very grateful to everyone at Brinkley Morgan for supporting our seniors,” said Trudy Reilly, director of development for the Pantry of Broward. “The Pantry of Broward survives because of caring people like the attorneys and staff at Brinkley Morgan, who have so graciously shared their blessings with our neighbors in need.”
The mission of the Pantry of Broward is to provide food and support services to seniors in need who are living on low, fixed incomes, including grandparents raising their grandchildren. The organization provides monthly food boxes to more than 425 clients and provides services such as housing assistance, emergency utility bill payments, food stamp applications, and free eye exams. The organization aims to improve the quality of life for food insecure seniors, grandparents and their grandchildren by lowering their cost of living, which increases the funds they can spend on other necessities.
Brinkley Morgan has been committed to serving the South Florida community since its inception in 1975. The firm’s charitable campaign, Brinkley Morgan Cares, supports local non-profits throughout the year. Recently, the firm has:
• donated and distributed hundreds of new Halloween costumes to pediatric patients at the Children’s Diagnostic and Treatment Center;
