Helping Feed Local Families for the Holidays
During a time when many Connecticut families are struggling to put food on their tables, five deserving families sat down to a fully-prepared holiday meal thanks to the kindness of Jacobs & Wallace, P.L.L.C, personal injury, medical malpractice and worker’s compensation attorneys located in Bridgeport, CT. The fully cooked meals were provided to families on Christmas Eve by partner Adele Jacobs and her colleagues. “Being able to help these families during this difficult year, was truly the best part of my holiday season,” says Jacobs. “It was a true reminder of what the holidays are all about.”
The firm is committed locally to giving back year-round, through several charitable initiatives and programs annually to raise funds and awareness for the needy and those struggling with illness, living in Connecticut. They partner with many charitable organizations to help make a difference, including CT Food Bank, Bridgeport Rescue Mission, Breast Cancer Emergency Aid Foundation, and Habitat for Humanity, to name but a few.
This year, because so many families were struggling due to COVID, the firm created a holiday meal giveaway initiative on Facebook, asking for help in choosing five worthy families. Any resident of Connecticut could nominate themselves or another family, for a free fully cooked holiday meal. Out of the nominees, five deserving families of up to 10 family members each, were chosen. The meals, which included soup, turkey, mashed potatoes, vegetables, stuffing, cranberry sauce, bread, and desserts, were provided to the families on Christmas Eve.
Partner, Andrew Wallace was pleased to be able to have the firm participate in this charitable effort this year. “We feel that the holiday season is a perfect opportunity for the firm to extend a helping hand to families who are in need, especially during the pandemic.”
One of the five families shared that they were faced with a very bleak Christmas if it wasn’t for the generosity of the Jacobs & Wallace holiday giveaway. “What your firm did for us was truly a blessing and we are forever grateful,” explains Tammy G., a mother of three teens, of which two have special needs. Tammy lost her job due to Covid-19, and was recently diagnosed with chronic congestive heart failure. Her fiancé is also dealing with health challenges and is awaiting a pending knee surgery. “We thought our Christmas was going to be as grim as this year has been for us. Thankfully, this meal gave my family hope, and it put the holiday spirit back into our home.”
