As one of the top patent law firms in the U.S., the partners, professionals and staff at Harness Dickey understand the correlation between the community and our success. In turn, the firm seeks to continually give back to the community in a variety of ways, whether it’s through volunteering time or donating money to worthy causes and charitable organizations. In one recent example, Harness Dickey’s St. Louis office held their 15th annual charity week. All money collected during the week of October 9 went directly to The Joshua Chamberlain Society (“JCS”).
About Harness Dickey’s 15th Annual Charity Week
The St. Louis team kicked off the week with a visit from one of JCS’s heroes, Corporal Todd Nicely of the United States Marine Corps. Over lunch, he shared his story about his time in the Marine Corps, his life changing injuries sustained while on tour in Afghanistan, and the impact of JCS. Corporal Nicely currently lives in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, in a smart home that was built with the help of JCS and the Gary Sinese Foundation, where he receives ongoing support from JCS.
Inspired by the visit from Corporal Nicely, Harness Dickey set its sights on a plan to raise money and awareness for the JCS cause. The week-long effort included money-raising efforts in the form of food days, casual days and various raffles for staff. In total, the St. Louis office collected more than $5200 that will go toward supporting veterans and their families.
