Zarwin Baum Adopts S. Weir Mitchell School, and Partners with Artist Perry Milou to Construct School’s ‘Anti-Bullying’ Mural

February 6, 2014

Zarwin Baum continues to increase their positive imprint in the community as the firm proudly announces the ‘adoption’ of the S. Weir Mitchell School, located in Southwest Philadelphia. In addition to providing the school with twenty (20) computers, ten (10) additional printers, three (3) tables, three (3) book cases, two (2) televisions, an iPad and a host of school supplies, the firm will kick off this bright beginning on Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 10am by constructing an ‘Anti-Bullying’ mural to empower the school community to take a stand against the rise of bullying amongst young people.

Zarwin Baum was first introduced to S. Weir Mitchell School earlier this Fall by firm Of-Counsel Alan E. Casnoff. After hearing one too many stories about the lack of resources in some of Philadelphia’s public schools, Casnoff felt compelled to offer a helping hand. Casnoff reached out to Superintendent Dr. William Hite for direction on where to start and was immediately told about the S. Weir Mitchell School. Upon visiting the Mitchell, Casnoff found a school filled with wonderful teachers doing their best under difficult circumstances; and a principal, Cheryl Hackett, who is working hard with limited resources. The need was there; and Zarwin Baum found a need that could be met.

The mural theme of ‘Anti-Bullying’ is both timely and important to the S. Weir Mitchell School. Along with having a Bully Protection Program, principal Hackett understands the rise of young people using the internet and social media to harass and threaten one another, in the form of cyber bullying. The firm’s adoption of S. Weir Mitchell School helps to make a better environment for the students and teachers.

The painting of the “Anti-Bullying” mural will be led by artist Perry Milou and will take place at the school, located at 5600 Kingsessing Avenue. Joining Milou in painting the ”Anti-Bullying” mural on Thursday, February 6 will be students from the Mitchell School, Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, and Zarwin Baum attorneys.

For over 50 years, Zarwin Baum attorneys have contributed their time, energy and economic resources to improve the quality of life to those around them. Participating in opportunities such as this speaks to the firm’s commitment to empowering the communities that it serves. For more information about Zarwin Baum’s support of S.
