Bingham McHale Announces Donation to Howe High School to Replace Equipment Lost in Fire
Bingham McHale LLP announced today that the firm will make a donation to Howe High School to assist in replacing equipment damaged by a fire at the school on Monday. Bingham McHale LLP will donate $3,000, and will match up to an additional $1,500. The firm is calling on clients and fellow community leaders for matching donations.
Nearly $12,000 in equipment was damaged by the fire on Monday. The amount lost is less than the amount of the insurance deductible, therefore the decision was made not to cover the loss through insurance.
"Bingham McHale LLP has an ongoing relationship with Howe High School, going back more than 10 years," said W. Tobin McClamroch, Managing Partner of the firm. "We understand the importance of this school to the community, and that's why we believe it is important to donate funds to replace the lost equipment. We are calling on our clients and colleagues to do the same."
Bingham McHale LLP attorneys have been involved with Howe High School for more than 10 years through a variety of programs, including one-on-one mentoring and classroom reading. The firm also holds an annual silent auction in December to raise funds for troubled families at Howe. In addition, the firm holds an annual clothing drive for students who need school uniforms. Last year, the firm also began a scholarship program for Howe students to provide academic scholarships for two students annually.
Bingham McHale LLP and corporate partner WellPoint are working together to bring the non-profit Street Law program to Howe High School. The Street Law program provides at-risk students with practical, participatory lessons on law and legal careers.
To make a matching donation, please contact Jim Reed, Business Development Partner, 317-635-8900 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
