In the spirit of the season, the team from Duffy & Sweeney again adopted two families from the Woonsocket Adopt-A-Family program, fulfilling the wish lists of five children. With close to 100% participation from all members of the firm – including attorneys and professional staff – the team capped off its shopping with a Friday afternoon wrapping party.
Adopt-A-Family, Inc. was started by a group of volunteers and has been a favorite local charity in the Northern Rhode Island area since its inception. Its mission is to anonymously match people in the community (donors) with families in Woonsocket (recipients) who are struggling financially. The donors provide each child’s entire Christmas, based on the Wish List provided by the parents.
Duffy & Sweeney’s GIVING BACK initiative runs throughout the year. The attorneys and staff at Duffy & Sweeney are deeply committed to both civic and charitable activities where they work and live. Previous firm GIVING BACK programs have included sorting and packaging food at the RI Food Bank and “running with the bulls” in support of Amos House.
