The annual Harvest for the Homeless drive ended its three-week campaign with an abundance of donated blankets and warm clothing. This year’s drive included volunteers from Ballard Spahr and more than 10 other Philadelphia law firms, as well as from three local law schools.

The donations were sorted at Ballard Spahr and distributed to the People’s Emergency Center, Salvation Army, Sheila Dennis House, and St. John’s Hospice. The Harvest for the Homeless Drive is made possible by the Young Lawyer’s Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association.

Lisa Whiteley, Ballard Spahr’s Pro Bono Coordinator, said: “We very much appreciate the donations and can assure everyone they will be put to good use at the local shelters. All of the organizations that participated helped make this event a success. We were able to contribute more together than we ever could have done alone.”

Ballard Spahr has a longstanding commitment to provide pro bono legal services to individuals and organizations in need. That commitment is embraced by all of our lawyers, paralegals, and staff in every office and within every practice. We encourage each lawyer to devote meaningful time to pro bono matters, offer billable hour credit for pro bono work, and recognize lawyers’ pro bono achievements.
