Each year, Cunningham Swan chooses a local charitable endeavour to support through the holiday season. This holiday season, the firm chose to support Blessings in a Backpack. Blessings in a Backpack is a charitable programme designed to feed elementary school children who may not have any or enough food on the weekends. The goal is to meet the weekend food needs of children who rely upon school breakfast and lunch programmes during the school week. Blessings arranges to have backpacks filled with food for the kids to take home on Friday evening. Then the kids bring the empty packs back on Monday morning, to be filled again for the next coming Friday.
Through donations from lawyers and staff as well as friends of the firm, we raised over $1,000 in support of Kingston’s Blessings in a Backpack chapter along with numerous large boxes of non-perishable food items.
