In November, Meyer, Unkovic & Scott launched The Kindness Card Project – an initiative developed by the firm’s Wellness and Diversity Committees to encourage the spread of kindness and appreciation during the season of giving.
The firm’s initial goal was to sell 800 cards and raise $1,600. But, in only one month, more than 1,400 cards were sold, and a total of $3,725 was raised for 412 Food Rescue.
Led by attorney Beth Slagle, 40 staff members volunteered to create unique, hand-painted Kindness greeting cards that were available for purchase by attorneys, staff, family, and friends. All donations collected for the cards benefited 412 Food Rescue and its vitally important food distribution and food waste mitigation initiatives throughout the Pittsburgh region.
“The compliments that we’ve received about the cards starting with clients, family, and friends, has been nothing short of amazing,” said Slagle. “They have been inspired by what our 40 artists have created.”
