Kelley Drye co-sponsored the National Association of Women Lawyers' (NAWL) event titled "Night of Giving" on March 24, 2009.
The event was the one of four "Night of Giving" events that were held during March 2009 in different regions of the country, including Boston, Los Angeles, Miami and New Jersey. Each "Night of Giving" enabled women lawyers and other professionals to come together for an evening of philanthropic networking and volunteerism to benefit charitable and community service organizations.
The event was also sponsored by LexisNexis, McCarter & English, Gibbons, and Financial Consultant Group, LLC.
The "Night of Giving" in New Jersey included a group volunteer activity to benefit The Community FoodBank of New Jersey, a food bank and service organization that distributes 23 million pounds of food to over 1500 New Jersey charities. The event was held at the FoodBank Warehouse. Over 100 participants volunteered their time sorting food. They also donated 1,184 lbs. of dry food,
$1,570 in cash and checks and 776 lbs. of items on the Foodbank's wish list.
