Miller Johnson Day of Service Helps Organizations in Need

Miller Johnson attorneys and staff will join together for the firm’s 7th Annual Day of Service on Monday, January 18, 2016 to support nonprofit organizations in Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. In keeping with the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day legacy to “Make it a day on, not a day off,” Miller Johnson’s offices will be open for business with participants volunteering time out of the office at local sites.

More than 150 Miller Johnson volunteers will be at various organizations working on projects of need. Services preformed include the assembly of water filtration devices to serve populations in need of a clean water supply, stocking and organizing food pantries, restoring and painting facilities, preparing garden environments, cutting and hauling brush and logs to clear grounds for ease of access, preparing meals, insulating structures, and interacting directly with residents. The firm worked with the Heart of West Michigan United Way Volunteer Center in Grand Rapids and Volunteer Kalamazoo to identify the following partner organizations:

Grand Rapids

  • 20 Liters
  • Beacon Hill at Eastgate
  • South End Community Outreach Ministries (SECOM)
  • Blandford Nature Center
  • Community Rebuilders
  • Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services
  • Well House

Kalamazoo

  • Housing Resources Inc. (HRI)
  • Boys & Girls Club of Greater Kalamazoo
  • Grace Hospice

At the end of the Day of Service, Miller Johnson participants will come together to reflect on the service projects and share experiences.
