From sorting clothes to making birthday bags for kids, the volunteer commitment continues at Phillips Law Group, with many of our staff members giving their time to assist with amazing causes. In February and March, we continued to pursue community service work with several of our volunteer partners, and Phillips Law has lots of opportunities coming up in the future that could use some more helping hands. 

Volunteers Continue Community Service Work

In late February, a few members of the Phillips Law Group team volunteered with NourishPHX to sort clothes for the people the organization serves. Previously known as formerly ICM Food and Clothing Bank, NourishPHX is a “trusted community hub serving vulnerable individuals and families by offering resources to satisfy immediate needs and to provide pathways to self-sufficiency,” according to the organization’s website.

Then, on March 4, Phillips Law Group helped host another Feeding Arizona event with Cloud Covered Streets. As part of the outreach opportunity, volunteers gave homeless individuals 23 haircuts, and three individuals got pampered at a makeup station. Plus, 14 individuals enjoyed showers, and two people got to have their nails done at the event. 

Additionally, three boxes of clothes were given out to the people at the event with Cloud Covered Streets, and several more were donated to St. Vincent. Two boxes of shoes were distributed as well. 

People who attended the event also got food, coffee, and orange juice, with a total of 80 meals served, six cartons of coffee given out, and two gallons of orange juice served by the end of the Feeding Arizona outreach opportunity. 

Notably, five pet blessing bags were also distributed at this event. Four were gifted for dogs, and one cat blessing bag was handed out, too. All in all, six Phillips Law Group volunteers made it all happen. 

Birthday Bags and Easter Eggs

Two other recent outreach events touched the hearts of Phillips Law Group volunteers as well. On March 7, several people volunteered with Foster Alliance to decorate birthday bags for the kids the organization works with. Some had simple messages, while others featured a pet theme or carefully drawn free-hand designs. 

More than 20 bags were assembled at this volunteer opportunity. Plus, as a special treat, the volunteers enjoyed some time with a pair of registered service dogs who usually visit with the sick at hospice facilities.

Finally, on March 8, a couple of volunteers lent a hand to Maggie’s Place, one of our longtime community service partners. They were put to work stuffing Easter eggs for the individuals and families the organization serves, and in the end, they managed to stuff more than 500 eggs in two hours!

These are just a few of the chances staff at Phillips Law Group had in recent weeks to show that our company’s volunteer commitment continues at the firm. We have plenty of opportunities to give back to the community coming up soon, and we are always willing to welcome new faces into the fold.
