Firm-wide, over 500 people annually volunteer their time through firm-sponsored activities outside pro bono legal representation, contributing an additional 4,200 hours of volunteer service to our communities.
Activities include renovating homes for low-income, elderly or disabled homeowners; classroom reading and career days for inner-city students; food, clothing, book and school supply drives; preparing meals for the homeless; participation in city-wide efforts such as Hands on Atlanta Day and the New York Cares Coat Drive; coaching high school mock trial teams and providing other law-related enrichment activities; in-house blood drives; special projects for senior citizens, veteran and military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan; numerous walks and races including AIDS walks and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation’s Race for the Cure; and various holiday projects benefiting children and families in need. We have built seven homes with Habitat for Humanity since 1993.
The firm organized its first firm-wide annual community service day in 2005. On K&S Cares Day, lawyers and staff participate in activities to improve the lives of children, senior citizens, and families in need in each of our communities. Our annual projects have ranged from hosting social events for elderly, disadvantaged and homeless people, repairing and renovating facilities for children and the homes of senior citizens, and river clean-ups to sorting donations and preparing and distributing lunches for a homeless services agency.
