In honor of Human Rights Day, the Pond Lehocky Giordano will donate to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as part of the 4th Annual 25 Days of Giving Campaign. This partnership was forged through the firm’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee. Once again, the firm be spreading holiday cheer over the next few weeks leading up to the new year by contributing to local and national charities selected by the firm’s clients, partners, attorneys and staff. This is one of many initiatives that the firm sponsors through its charitable arm, Pond Lehocky Community.
This will be Pond Lehocky’s fourth straight year presenting 25 Days of Giving. Beginning December 1, the firm is holding gift drives and donate to charities across the country. Traditionally, the firm’s staff and attorneys have volunteered at local non-profits throughout the month, in addition to monetary donations, but has since transitioned to virtual events and donations, considering the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
