Most people get something – or derive utility from, in other, more proper, words – out of donating one’s time, money, or resources to charities or other non-profits. The same holds true for carrying out community service functions, such as picking up litter on residential or city streets that are seldom cleaned up, just one of many examples of community service that is likely helpful to society at large.
However, not everybody has enough spare money to break off from their household budgets and give to good causes, a good-enough able body to help charities through performing physical activities of need, enough free time to do any of these things, or otherwise be in living situations that lend themselves to making getting engaged in philanthropic endeavors easy.
Whether you’re philanthropically active or not, it’s always nice to hear about the good things done by local businesses for people, causes, and organizations who genuinely need such assistance.
Kisling Nestico & Redick’s Stuffed-Backpack Giveaway
Its operations spread across nearly a dozen field offices throughout the state of Ohio, Kisling Nestico & Redick recently gave out tons – although they weren’t weighed, they, collectively, had to have weighed more than two tons – of school supplies.
The firm’s attorneys worked tirelessly to pick up school supplies for needy children – 200 of them.
Kisling Nestico & Redick’s shoppers also bought 200 backpacks. Each was stuffed to the brim. To give needy families all around Ohio an equal chance, the law firm spread the backpacks evenly across five of Kisling Nestico & Redick’s official locations:
Kisling Nestico & Redick’s Rob Nestico shared with a local news agency around the time the backpacks were given out that the total dollar value of each of the backpacks, fillers and all, was $54 per unit.
