The Los Angeles-based law firm Greenberg Glusker announced Tuesday that it has donated a total of $250,000 to four organizations that address hunger, homelessness, social injustice and supply of personal protective equipment.
The largest donations of $75,000 each went to:
— The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, which has more than doubled its food distribution in response to the coronavirus pandemic;
— PATH, the largest homeless nonprofit organization working to end homelessness in California; and
— Equal Justice Initiative, which is committed to ending mass incarceration in the United States, challenging economic injustice and protecting human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles received $25,000. Its COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund provides the hospital with specialized supplies, medical tests, expert care and technology.
The organizations were selected after a firm-wide vote.
“Our community needs have never been greater, and I am extremely proud of our collective efforts to commit these funds to organizations that work to improve the lives of people in Los Angeles,” said the law firm’s managing partner, Bob Baradaran. “There has been no better time to contribute to groups that are supporting people who have been directly impacted by COVID-19 and social injustice.”
The law firm also intends to maintain relationships with the four organizations through volunteer efforts, pro bono work and firm-wide drives once permitted in the post-COVID 19 era, company executives said.
