In addition to serving people who have suffered a loss because of an injury or negligence on the part of someone else, or who are struggling to make ends meet because of a disability that keeps them from working, Gerling Law is deeply committed to the communities in which we live and work. We connect to the community through our programs that enhance safety, through the volunteer services and donations we provide to persons of limited means, through the public service activities we undertake to build and strengthen the communities we serve, and through the generous financial support we provide to a wide range of charitable and cultural organizations.
As part of our ongoing commitment to the community, Gerling Law and its team of professionals have contributed time or treasure to more than a hundred community organizations. Through the Gerling Law Great Helmet Giveaway initiative, we have provided over 6,600 bicycle helmets free of charge to children in our communities alone and in partnership with multiple civic organizations, including Boy Scouts, the Evansville School Corporation and the Evansville Police Department. We also have provided over 23,000 recycle bags to individuals in our communities alone and in partnership with multiple civic organizations, including the Tri-State Food Bank, Evansville Christian Life Center and Evansville Ministers' Wives Council.
Because we recognize the importance of providing nonlegal community service to strengthen our communities, we strongly encourage our lawyers and staff to participate in community activities, including volunteering with legal service, social service, environmental, educational, civic, religious and other community organizations.
At the heart of Gerling Law's giving pledge is a genuine desire to make an impact where the needs are most critical in our communities. The firm's lawyers and staff have given back in time and talent to nurture and grow the places we call home. We believe that's the right thing to do.
