Special Counsel Gives Back This Holiday Season

Special Counsel Gives Back - Holiday Charity Food Drive

Special Counsel is proud to give back to our community. This year we’ve raised money, donated school supplies and given countless hours of our time to those less fortunate in our communities across the country.

Last holiday season, we made a donation and volunteered at Miriam’s Kitchen, an organization committed to ending chronic homelessness in Washington D.C. by connecting them with permanent supportive housing, and ensuring they have the necessary support o remain in housing. Our Thanksgiving with Miriam’s Kitchen was an incredible experience and we’re excited to once again provide food to make the season brighter for those in need.

This holiday season as you sit down with your family and friends to enjoy your holiday meal, take a moment to think about the millions of Americans that suffer from food insecurity; forcing them to skip meals, eat less, buy inexpensive foods that do not meet their daily nutritional needs or sometimes feed their children and not themselves.


49.1 million Americans struggled to put food on the table for their families in 2013, including 33.3 million adults and 15.8 million children.
