Partridge Snow & Hahn LLP, a business-law and litigation firm, recently donated 25 backpacks filled with school supplies to the annual Back to School Celebration event as part of its 25/25 initiative, a yearlong commemoration that gives back to its supporters.
“We are very pleased to be able to commemorate our milestone anniversary by helping less fortunate school children prepare for the upcoming school year,” said Managing Partner David Gilden. “We also want to thank our friends at United Way of Rhode Island for connecting us to Back to School Celebration and for the outstanding work United Way does in our community.”
Back to School Celebration distributes school supplies to more than 14,000 children at 11 sites around the state. The nonprofit organization was created 14 years ago to engage families in their children’s education and provide school supplies for all families that attend. The event features live music, food and refreshments, along with more than 150 exhibitors with information on various programs available in the community. •
