The Personal Injury Attorneys at Smith, Gaskill & Shenkman, P.A.,( including Managing Partner, Donald Smith, Senior Attorney, Brooke Grogan, and Associate Attorney, Brandon Smith) partnered with Operation Hope last night and distributed over 300 Thanksgiving turkeys and sides to homeless and low income families in the Lake Park and Riviera Beach communities! Hundreds of people lined up at Operation Hope to collect their meals, including young children, families, and wheelchair-bound veterans. The need was great this year- even after distributing over 300 meals, there were many families still in line. Senior Attorney Brooke Grogan stated “the most rewarding aspect of the Turkey Drive was knowing that we made a difference in the lives of over 300 people.” All that were in attendance last night were profoundly touched and humbled to be present at such an inspiring event for such a worthy cause. Managing Partner Donald Smith expressed that “the real purpose of Thanksgiving is the giving.” Operation Hope is a local non-profit organization founded by Executive Director, Kenneth Bowers, 1989. Operation Hope provides emergency, transitional, and/or permanent housing and essential supportive services to homeless men, women, and children and assists them in becoming independent and productive citizens in society. We would like to personally thank the volunteers that came who helped make this event a success! We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to Mr. Kenneth Bowers, Pastor Nelson, and Ms. Sheila for allowing us to partner with them in this extraordinary event.
