On Nov.. 28, 2018, James Quiggle, a paralegal in the Personal Injury Department at the law firm of Laddey, Clark & Ryan, along with the assistance of other attorneys and employees from his department, completed a day of service on behalf of the firm collecting food at Stop & Shop for the Sparta Ecumenical Church Food Pantry.

Laddey, Clark & Ryan was able to raise over $165.00 and collected six full grocery cart loads of groceries, including several turkeys and chickens. The food was given to needy families in Sussex County for use at Christmas. The Sparta Ecumenical Church Food Pantry is expected to hand out approximately 1,000 food baskets this season.

“I feel grateful to my firm for giving me the opportunity to help support the Sparta Ecumenical Church Food Pantry. It is such an important organization in our community. Some of my fondest childhood memories involve spending time with my family at Christmas. The fact that there are thousands of families out in my community who cannot afford to provide a meal during this season greatly saddens me. I’m happy to do my part in helping to ensure that as many people as possible can experience the warmth and love of the holiday.“

Laddey, Clark & Ryan Partner, Andrew Fraser, commented, “We are proud of James for the success of this effort and the impact it will have on so many people in need. When we hired James in 2015, we were looking for someone to assist our growing Personal Injury team in representing individuals and families whose lives have been changed after serious injury or illness through no fault of their own. James has become a vital part of that team and his passion to want to help others is evident in the work he does for this firm and out in the community.”

LCR’s Day of Service is part of a growing trend for corporate volunteer programs that engages employees by providing a meaningful and valuable experience that gives back to the community.
