Zarwin Volunteer Day at S. Weir Mitchell School
June 27, 2016
Philadelphia elementary school students and teachers can expect to come back to refreshed classrooms in September, thanks to the team at Zarwin Baum. On June 27, nearly two dozen Zarwin Baum attorneys and associates spent the day priming, painting and brightening up the classrooms and hallways, with hues of red, yellow, green and blue, at S. Weir Mitchell Elementary School in Southwest Philadelphia.
This beautification effort is a part of the firm’s ongoing commitment to serving the community through charitable and philanthropic activities. In 2014, Zarwin Baum adopted Mitchell Elementary after hearing about the lack of resources in some of Philadelphia’s public schools, and seeing a need that it could help fulfill. Since that time, the firm has provided ongoing support through quarterly fundraising and the donation of refurbished computers, printers, tables, bookcases, and a host of school supplies and upgraded technology, ensuring young people have the tools they need to succeed.
As a ‘Thank You’ for the firm’s hard work, students and school administrators gave the Zarwin Baum team a framed, hand-painted piece of artwork, depicting the Philadelphia skyline, and with messages of gratitude and appreciation.
