The Phoenix office of Quarles & Brady LLP is pleased to announce that after a month-long donation campaign, it raised enough food and cash donations to provide 7,500 meals for those in need at the St. Mary’s Food Bank. This effort is one of many activities the local office takes part in through its Quarles Cares initiative, a firmwide effort to connect directly with local communities, to best understand the residents’ needs. Through the volunteer initiatives, attorneys and staff commit themselves personally to civic and charitable efforts, and their personal growth is reflected in the workplace. Over the last several years, the primary areas of focus have been hunger and education, but whatever the cause, Quarles Cares’ focal point is hands-on volunteerism.
