Joining volunteers around the world, nearly 20 employees from Huie took part in the inaugural Global Day of Service, a worldwide initiative spearheaded by Ford Motor Company’s Legal Alliance for Women (LAW), the company’s professional organization focused of women in the legal practice. The coordinated global effort will assist organizations in supporting the empowerment and well-being of women and girls in their respective communities. Huie was among more than 90 law firms around the world partnering with LAW to volunteer time and perform pro bono work on a day of community service on September 27th.
Huie employees brought the Global Day of Service to Birmingham by volunteering at Pathways, an agency that serves approximately 1,600 women and children experiencing homelessness in the Birmingham area each year. The team from Huie painted the kitchen and dining room and provided lunch to guests at Pathways.
Ford LAW and partner’s Global Day of Service kicked off this year with a singular vision to help community organizations that are assisting women and girls through educational, empowerment and support programs. Bringing together volunteers from more than eight countries, this day of service is a collective effort to give back to the communities Ford and its partners operate in.
“Through this day of service, we are aiming to marshal the collective efforts of our partners in the legal profession around the world to give back to the community,” said Beth Rose, assistant general counsel at Ford Motor Company and chairperson of Ford’s Legal Alliance for Women. “The passion we share in advocating for and serving our communities extends beyond this one day. It is part of who we are as individuals and drives our community service year-round.”
