Clark Hill Builds on Tradition of Community Service With Thrive125
Lansing, MI – Clark Hill recently completed Thrive125, a two-year community service program that encouraged everyone within the firm to spend 125 minutes annually volunteering in their respective communities, during office hours and beyond. The Thrive125 program began in 2015 to celebrate Clark Hill’s 125th anniversary and 125 years of helping communities, companies and organizations grow and succeed. Throughout the course of the campaign, the firm donated more than 1,150 hours of time and the made financial donations in excess of $20,000 to local organizations in every community across the nation where Clark Hill operates.
In the second year of Thrive125, Clark Hill’s Lansing, Michigan office had the highest participation rate of the firm’s 12 offices and was awarded funds to donate to the organization of its choice. The office collectively selected to donate the funds to Haven House of East Lansing which provides emergency housing and support services for families. The Lansing office team so enjoyed the volunteer experiences, they have been inspired to continue their monthly service projects.
“Clark Hill’s Thrive125 initiative provided a one-of-a-kind opportunity to make a positive impact in communities. We are proud of the time and talent our teammates gave to our project. With participation across the country and at every level of the firm, we helped advance the mission of dozens of organizations. As a firm, Clark Hill will continue to contribute and enhance the communities where we live and work,” said Charley Lawler, Managing Member of Clark Hill’s Lansing Office.
