We at Spada Law Group, LLC. are very aware of how fortunate we are and believe we have an obligation to give back and help those around us that are less fortunate. As a firm we want to be involved in a positive way in the communities we serve. It is towards that end that Spada Law Group has implemented its Lawyers Paying It Forward program.
Each year two local charities will be identified and selected based on their ability and past history of making a dramatic positive impact on the lives of the poor, the hungry, the homeless or the sick. Once selected, Spada Law Group, LLC will earmark and donate a percentage of its revenues (not profits) to these organizations equally.
We are pleased to announce that for 2017 our selected organizations are My Brother’s Table and New England Center and Home For Veterans. A brief summary of each is listed below. We hope you will take a minute to learn more about each and if you too are moved by their work and want to help, go to their website and Pay It Forward with us!
My Brother’s Table
Founded in 1982 My Brother’s Table, the largest soup kitchen on the North Shore, has provided over 2.9 million hot, free meals and outreach to men, women and children in need. Last year alone MBT served over 126,000 meals.
Since the second year of operation MBT has been open 365 days a year, through snow and ice storms, power outages and other difficult events. My Brother’s Table has been open over 10,000 consecutive days, offering free meals to everyone who comes to our door, regardless of race, color, creed or sex.
My Brother’s Table has been able to provide meals and a wide range of other services to those in need in our community through the support of donors and over 2,500 volunteers each year.
In addition to serving meals 7 days a week MBT provides meals to homebound individuals, participates in a family dinner program, provides meals to at risk-seniors, and hosts a free weekly medical clinic.
Today the problems of hunger and poverty continue to exist in Lynn and across the country.
