The Waterfront Law Team Supports MLK Community Unity Celebration on the Eastern Shore of Virginia
On Monday, January 15th, Martin Luther King Day, Bryan Peoples, Mancha Stanton, Cozette Holland and Abigail Wilcox, (along with her three children, Graham, Perry & Reid) from the Waterfront Law Team joined the team from Citizens for a Better Eastern Shore (CBES), members from the Northampton County NAACP and community volunteers to package and serve or deliver soup to seniors at the oldest African-American owned and operated business in Northampton County, Gidden's Do Drop Inn. The purpose of the event was to bring the diverse population of Northampton County together as a community.
“Our friends at Pender & Coward are a full-service law firm in more ways than one! For the 6th year they have not only financially supported our Community Unity Day, but they brought a great bunch of folks over to pitch in for a day of service in honor of Martin Luther King. Jr,” said Donna Bozza, Executive Director, CBES.
Our team helped to assemble soup and crackers for delivery to shut-ins in low-wealth housing complexes as well as for folks who wanted to drop in for a bite to eat. In addition to the food assembly help, our littlest volunteers made sure to decorate each bag the food was delivered in for a fun pop and surprise.
Even the local media took a liking to the community’s volunteer efforts at Gidden's Do Drop Inn and featured our work in the local paper, Eastern Shore Post. Read more here (see page 18, right after the obituaries).
