On Thanksgiving we take the time to acknowledge all we have to be grateful for and do so while breaking bread with family and friends. There’s no better way to express the sense of gratitude than to spend time serving others, and on Friday, November 17, Keches Law did just that.
Keches Law team members worked together to pack bags with everything someone would need for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and delivered the over 500 meals directly to recipients’ doors.
“We are fortunate to have a successful firm, loyal hardworking team members, and an insatiable drive to help the families in our communities who need it most,” Sean Flaherty says. “We’re happy to help so many families fill their Thanksgiving table so they can get back to what the holiday is all about—enjoying time with family, friends and loved ones.”
What Did Community Members Receive?
The process started halfway through the day on Friday. Keches team members took a break from their work, met at the Bridgewater office, and packed all the food into bags. Then they split off into small groups and delivered the food directly to the recipients.
When a recipient looked into the bag, they found a turkey, cans of cranberry sauce, green beans and corn, boxes of mashed potatoes, stuffing and brownie mix, a jar of gravy and a jar opener.
“I just wanted to reach out and say thank you again for the Thanksgiving turkey and all the sides you gave me and my daughter,” one recipient said. “It helped make our Thanksgiving dinner and day so much better. We really appreciated it. We are so grateful for your help this holiday season.”
As the deliveries came to a close, Keches employees Caroline Dixon and Samantha Moriarty really went the extra mile. After having trouble locating their last recipient’s house, the two spoke with a mail delivery woman who informed them the recipient had moved away and weren’t going to be able to receive the meal.
However, the delivery woman also told them a disabled veteran lived nearby who would be very appreciative of the donation. Dixon and Moriarty said he was very grateful and the exchange left them all near tears of joy.
This was the third consecutive year that Keches Law has held our Thanksgiving meal drive event, just one of countless charitable efforts the firm makes on a yearly basis. In 2023, Keches Law has donated over $300,000, in addition to our attorneys’ pro bono case work and community-driven non-profit work. This summer, Molly Harrington was chosen as the Keches Law Scholarship winner, which she is using to help her attend school to be a nurse this fall.
Keches Cares is the non-profit 501(c)(3) charity founded by Keches Law Group. Throughout the year, Keches Cares raises funds to support scholarships, community programs, and families that are impacted by tragedy.
