The law firm of LewisFox, well known for its focus on legal matters related to the alcohol beverage industry and criminal law litigation, in the spirt of the holidays helped make the season brighter for those less fortunate.
While the partners at LewisFox have collaborated on legal matters for more than 10 years, the firm made it a priority to reach out to community organizations in need during the holiday season.
Attorneys and staff from the firm donated two bins full of children’s books to the Barnyard, a neighborhood community center located in the heart of Coconut Grove Village, that provides free after-school care and summer school for the community’s children.
The team also made it their mission to visit Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and made a large toy contribution to Radio Lollipop, which gives young patients a voice during their stay at the hospital. While patients’ can’t say “no” to taking their medicine or receiving treatment, they can request their favorite songs, win prizes and hear their own voices on the radio.
“Our firm is passionate about being involved in the community,” said Robert Lewis, one of the founding partners of LewisFox. “We have been very fortunate this year but the holidays aren’t bright for everyone, so we do our best to spread as much joy as we can.”
Earlier in the week, the staff of LewisFox delivered 30 winter care packages to Lorah Park Elementary School. The team hopes to make this an ongoing program to help with food supply and activities for some of the school’s families who are greatly in need during winter break, a very strained time for some families as these children rely on the schools for meals and child care.
The firm worked through the Miami-Dade County School Board to select a school for this year’s contribution and then worked with the school’s principal to select the 30 children who would receive the packages. The packages contain breakfast and lunch foods as well as school supplies, reading materials, card games and journals.
“My son helped pack the boxes and even attended with staff to distribute,” said founding partner Marbet Lewis. “We instill this sense of community in our home and in our practice.”
