As part of the firm’s continuing commitment to the communities it serves, law firm Berman & Simmons has selected three local nonprofits to partner with during the 2018 holiday season: Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maine, The Root Cellar and Community Cat Advocates. The firm is supporting these organizations with holiday gifts and much needed supplies.
- The Ronald McDonald House provides an affordable "home away from home" for families of children receiving medical treatment, so that families can focus on the care of their children without the added stress of commuting between the hospital and home. Maine has two Ronald McDonald Houses: Bangor & Portland. The firm donation provided gifts for patients and supplies for the families staying at the House.
- The Root Cellar is an independently run nonprofit supported by volunteers from multiple area churches and denominations. Located in downtown Lewiston, The Root Cellar is committed to providing enriching services to neighboring youth and their families. Berman and Simmons donated to the organization’s Wish List, providing coats, boots, and toys for the children.
- Community Cat Advocates is a locally run licensed program established to help the most at risk cat population within Maine shelters: Feral Cats. Its mission is to help Maine become a no-kill state through its Trap, Neuter, Return process. The firm’s donation includes cat food, cleaning products, paper goods and feline medication.
These holiday contributions are part of Berman & Simmons year-long commitment to giving back to the community where its attorneys and staff live and work.
