The Eichholz Law Firm recently held a drive throughout the month of July to help those in troubled neighborhoods in Savannah. They collected toiletries, school supplies and cleaning products to help ease the burden of these communities. A lot of the items we may take for granted put stress on these families financially, and it’s important to The Eichholz Law Firm to help those in need in our own community.
The drive benefitted the Ignite Change campaign run by Savannah Youth City Incorporated. Their goals are to help lower income families and children find helpful resources in Savannah, provide food and essential toiletries, and give hope. Ignite Change empowers the community’s youth and shares the importance of banding together to bring change. The events are run on weekdays during the summer, and held on holidays and weekends during the school season and give employment, educational and mental health resources an opportunity to demonstrate the services that are available to help those in at risk neighborhoods.
It’s imperative to the Eichholz Law Firm that they don’t turn their back on their community when it needs help the most. The Eichholz team is always ready and willing to give back, and collected over 50 pounds of supplies to donate to Ignite Change. The Eichholz Law Firm staff collected laundry detergent, dish soap, household cleaning supplies, paper products and school supplies since this can be an especially stressful time of year for families struggling financially, so hopefully our donations will make it easier to make ends meet. The items were given to Ignite Change and distributed throughout their two-week long summer campaign.
David Eichholz and members of his team volunteered at one of the Ignite Change nights and had a blast with the volunteers and visitors who stopped by. They served food, distributed household goods, and talked about the different opportunities there were in Savannah to help them change their current situation.
“Giving back is a significant part of our mission at The Eichholz Law Firm. At the end of the day, our goal is to help our community, and I hope our donations can make a beneficial impact on someone’s life,” said David Eichholz after the event. “We look forward to continuing our efforts to help those in need, and getting them back on their feet.”
