Jaburg Wilk recently had a diaper drive to benefit families who are clients and prospective clients of NOAH – Neighborhood Outreach Access to Health. Employees of Jaburg Wilk donated diapers, wipes, and Aquaphor cream. There were more than 11,000 diapers collected through employee donations! The two-day distribution event distributed these baby and toddler essentials to more than 100 families. An additional, and unexpected, bonus included connecting families with NOAH who did not know about their services which includes access to primary care and pediatric healthcare appointments, as well as other community-based resources.
“Cori Viola, one our attorneys, saw this unmet need and spearheaded the effort” said Gary Jaburg Managing Partner of Jaburg Wilk. “She conceptualized the idea and created this two-day event that positively impacted over one hundred families. Our employees generously contributed both diapers and dollars.”
“Our goal was to alleviate a financial burden and we certainly accomplished that. So many families expressed their gratitude, and one even sought me out on Facebook to tell me what a blessing this was for her family. Their gratitude humbled me and I am so grateful to my colleagues for their generosity and time” said Cori Viola, Jaburg Wilk attorney and event organizer.
