Hollingsworth LLP Selects Carpenter’s Shelter as its March 2021 Community Engagement Partner

news | March 1, 2021

The Firm continues its commitment to addressing ongoing COVID-19 hardships for individuals and families in the DC-metro area by designating Carpenter’s Shelter as its March 2021 Community Engagement Partner.  The Firm will donate to Carpenter’s Shelter and match donations by all Firm employees made in March.

Carpenter’s Shelter is a local non-profit in Alexandria, VA that provides homelessness support to individuals and families in Northern Virginia.  It serves hundreds of homeless men, women, and children annually, last year alone serving more than 780 homeless and formerly homeless children and adults.  Carpenter’s Shelter works with clients to address the causes of homelessness and helps them transition back to independent living by continuing to provide support after they leave the shelter.

As is the case throughout the country, the pandemic has uprooted many individuals and families and caused them to suffer financial instability.  It is our hope that donating to Carpenter’s Shelter, as well as to other like-minded organizations will help support and empower the individuals and families in our community who are most vulnerable.
