Committed to Our Community
At Twiggs, Strickland & Rabenau our clients are those who have been
badly injured and are experiencing the emotional and economic harms those
injuries have caused. Our clients are also family members coping with
injury or death. Our clients’ experiences make us particularly sensitive
to the needs of the disabled, the homeless, and the hungry.
Throughout the year, members of the firm work on behalf of charities helping
those groups. At holiday time, in honor of our clients and friends of
the firm, we make a significant gift to a local charity.
Helping Feed the Hungry
We were asked for help by the
Urban Ministries of Durham whose motto and mission is "food, clothing, and a future." Feeding
600 or more hungry people a day became particularly challenging when their
commercial oven died. We were pleased to provide Urban Ministries with
a brand new commercial convection oven and a complete set of new tables
for the dining area. The dedication of the oven was a wonderful occasion
for all of us, and gave us all the opportunity to bake cookies for the
program’s holiday dinner.
Durham Herald Sun newspaper described in its annual summary of community outreach, the firm
donated $11,000 to replace a broken oven at Urban Ministries of Durham.
The firm’s partners and others didn’t just donate money, as
several of them rolled up their sleeves, some with children in tow, and
baked cookies to try out the new oven. Giving back to the community is
important to the law firm, and their efforts not only to replace the UMD
oven, but to put it to good use, exemplify that belief.
“It’s magic,” UMD Executive Director Patrice Nelson said.
