On Tuesday, December 9, 2014, Pond Lehocky partnered with Families Forward Philadelphia, an organization devoted to providing shelter for homeless and traveling families, to spread some holiday cheer.
Attorneys and staff members helped residents brighten their living spaces with holiday décor, joined children in decorating stockings and brought tasty treats for everyone to enjoy. The night ended with a surprise visit from the man himself – Santa Claus. The firm also provided a donation to Families Forward Philadelphia so that holiday presents could be purchased for residents.
Families Forward Philadelphia is the city’s largest privately run shelter for homeless families. It also has 75 transitional and permanent family residential units in West Philadelphia. Its mission is to help homeless families become healthy, productive and self-reliant. To learn more about volunteering at the shelter or to make a donation, visit: http://familiesforwardphilly.org/
