We count our blessings every day. We have jobs we love, families we adore, roofs over our head and food un our cupboards. But we know not everyone is this secure, and the pangs can be felt even more deeply during the holidays.
That is why the rocky McElhaney Law Firm is so very proud to support Gallatin C.A.R.E.S, a food bank and thrift store that helps families throughout Sumner County who might otherwise have to go without. We want our Food & Donation Drive to absolutely FLOOD Gallatin C.A.R.E.S this year – and we hope you’ll help us do it.
From now until December 5, 2016, the Rocky McElhaney Law Firm will be collecting the following items, to benefit this incredible organization:
- Non-perishable food items, especially peanut butter, jelly, canned meat, canned fruit, and pasta, or cereals like oatmeal, granola and fruit or protein bars
- Gift cards to local grocery stores like Aldi, Kroger or Wal-Mart
- Cash donations (Click this link to make a tax-deductible donation)
We know that by working together, we can ensure that so many more people don’t go hungry this year.
All donations can be dropped off at our Music Row office at 1516 16th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37212, but if you cannot come to us, we will come to you; please call 615.425.2500 for more information.
We also need volunteers to help us on December 6th! We’re hoping to be totally overwhelmed by the number of donations we have, and we could use a hand sorting and packing it all. We would love you to join us.
