Philadelphia’s legal community recently hosted two school supply drives for needy students in the area.
The Philadelphia Bar Association’s young lawyers division and the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s minority bar community outreach committee sponsored its first “Back to School Supply Drive.”
Martin LLC hosted the final collection night of the drive August 27 at the firm’s office.
All of the supplies were distributed to local schools and recreation centers throughout Philadelphia, a release said.
Maria E. Bermudez-Harris, an associate with Martin LLC, is the current vice chair of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s young lawyers division.
