DURHAM, N.C., Oct. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin recently donated urgently needed items to the Urban Ministries of Durham (UMD) through employee donations and payroll deductions.
The law firm's President's Team coordinated the effort, which yielded 24 large garbage bags of fall clothing, 130 personal hygiene items, 115 pairs of socks and underwear, 72 cans of soup, and 172 pounds of dried beans.
President's Team members contributed their time at Urban Ministries to sort household items and clothing for the ministries' Clothing Closet, measure dried beans for their Food Pantry, organize and process school supply donations, and prepare folders to be reused by case managers.
