Clark Hill Hosts 3rd Annual Clark Hill Cares Service Day June 25, 2011
“For the third year on a row, we have had a great experience volunteering and supporting our area food banks,” said Don Lee, Chief Marketing Officer of Clark Hill PLC. “This is a fantastic partnership for our firm and we look forward to working together in years to come.”
Over the past three years, Clark Hill has hosted fundraisers and food drives to support area food banks and continues to host the annual Service Day in what traditionally is a more challenging time of year for the food banks to secure volunteer services. Nearly 200 Clark Hill volunteers stocked food items, sorted inventory and otherwise assisted the food banks with their goals this past weekend.
Clark Hill’s Chicago office participated in the Greater Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk, which has annually coincided with Clark Hill Cares Service Day.
Teams from Clark Hill’s Detroit and Birmingham, Mich. offices, spent the day at Gleaner’s Community Food Bank in Detroit.
In Grand Rapids, Mich., the volunteers supported the Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank.
In Lansing, Mich., the volunteers worked on behalf of the Mid-Michigan Food Bank.
In Phoenix, the volunteers provided assistance at the Desert Mission Food Bank.
In addition to Service Day, the Clark Hill Cares program hosts an annual “Cash and Cans” drive during the winter months. The firm has raised more than $10,000 for area food banks through this program and donated more than an additional 20,000 meals for those in need.

Clark Hill Cares is the pro-social community involvement effort of Clark Hill PLC, supported throughout the firm. Through service projects and donations, Clark Hill Cares aims to make a difference in the communities it serves. Since the firm’s inception dating back to 1890, Clark Hill, through its employees, has been an active participant in community efforts through organized volunteer programs, pro-bono legal services, and service to the nonprofit community. Our attorneys and other professionals also regularly participate in community associations and have active interests on nonprofit boards, foundations and other community organizations.
The firm formally organized these efforts in 2008, by announcing the Clark Hill Cares program. The first official Clark Hill Cares Service Day, a firm wide volunteer effort, took place on Saturday, June 27, 2009, and included more than 200 volunteers in three states at food banks throughout the region. Our Clark Hill Cares efforts continue throughout the year, with regularly organized fundraising events, sponsorships and an official Service Day, in which all employees and their families are invited to participate.
