Grand Rapids, Michigan – On Wednesday, August 29th, The International Society of Primerus Law Firms’ staff spent the morning volunteering at a Feeding America facility in West Michigan. The Primerus team worked together to label, scoop, seal, pack and box 3,500 lbs. of sweet potatoes – 2 lbs. per bag! The entire Primerus staff participated including Primerus Founder and President John C. “Jack” Buchanan, who stated:
“We have great people in Primerus. Great lawyers in that of our members, and a great staff here in Michigan. Our people truly care about their communities and work hard to give back where they can. Our effort today is just a small representative example of all the great things the people within our organization are doing in their own communities across the Globe.”
In addition to giving back to the local West Michigan Community, the volunteer effort was a demonstration of Primerus’ commitment to leading the fight against hunger. Primerus, along with each and every one of its member law firms, shares a commitment to a set of common values known as the Primerus Six Pillars. One of the Pillars is Community Service. As such, Primerus has organized an organization-wide Community Service Initiative to combat hunger. Under this “Hunger Initiative”, Primerus member law firms are coordinating local food drives in their own cities as well as engaging in similar ‘days of service’ to volunteer. In recognition of Primerus’ global foot print, Primerus members are also making financial contributions to organizations like the United Nations and its World Food Program as “billable hours for hunger.” Millions of people depend on organizations like the United Nations for survival, and the donations make their work possible.
