Firefly tries to take part in some type of community service effort on a quarterly basis because it’s important to us that we’re investing in and truly serving our community (…and not just papers). In the past, Firefly Legal has participated in food drives, school supply drives, 5k Walks, fundraisers and benefits. This time, we decided to do something a little bit different.
April went to the dogs… cats, horses, and bunnies, etc. at Firefly Legal. Headquartered in Mokena, IL,
During the months of April and May, many of our offices participated in an animal shelter drive, helping to raise awareness for the prevention of cruelty to animals. Our Illinois offices concluded the shelter drive at the end of April; in Florida, we extended the drive through May. In donating to the shelters, Firefly associates were able to join forces and make a big impact at local shelters; a cause many of the employees were really excited about and passionate about contributing.
Firefly Legal offices donated to:
- NAWS IL Humane Society, which is located in Mokena, IL
- PAWS of Tinley Park, which is located in Tinley Park, IL
- Humane Society of Tampa Bay, which is located in Tampa, FL
- Humane Society of Broward County, which is located in Fort Lauderdale, FL
The Firefly associates from all of the branch offices were excited to participate. Associates Kristi Lyles of the Affidavits department in Mokena, IL, and Adam Pehas in our IT department of the corporate office donated items to the drive, even though neither currently owns a pet. In South Carolina, Dawn McCoy regularly contributes to the Carolina Hearts Aussie Rescue, and in Illinois, Danielle Loonam volunteers for It’s A Pittie Rescue and even adopted a dog from the organization. Jody Schuldt helped organize the donations at the Mokena, IL satellite office; her team produced a staggering amount of supplies for the Mokena, IL NAWS Illinois Humane Society animal shelter.
And that’s just a small snapshot of the folks at Firefly who were excited to take part in the cause.
