LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Mitchell Williams Selig Gates & Woodyard, P.L.L.C. is currently accepting nominations through Nov. 20 for its “Take Time To Give” program, the firm’s primary community service initiative.
Through Take Time To Give, Mitchell Williams provides support to civic and charitable organizations through volunteer hours, pro bono legal services and financial contributions. The firm will select one organization from each of the areas where the firm’s offices are located in Little Rock/Central Arkansas; Rogers/Northwest Arkansas; and Austin, Texas.
“The Take Time To Give program was started as result of our founder Maurice Mitchell’s commitment to non-profit organizations and his commitment to serving the community,” said Attorney Mary Catherine Way, chair of the Take Time To Give committee.
The Take Time to Give program was established in 2004 to celebrate the firm’s 50th anniversary with the firm challenging every employee to donate 50 hours of their time to community service. In 2009, the firm began selecting a “primary” Take Time To Give charity annually donating volunteer hours, pro bono legal services and a $25,000 contribution. The Take Time To Give financial contribution has since increased to a $50,000 donation. In addition to the primary charity, the firm also supports over 100 charitable and community organizations throughout the year through sponsorships, financial contributions, leadership and volunteer service.
Applications for the 2019 Take Time To Give program are available now at http://www.taketimetogive.com/. To apply, organizations must have a 501(c)3 tax status and must not have been the Take Time To Give primary charity within the past five years. Applications must be received electronically or by hard copy no later than Nov. 20, 2018 at 5 p.m. CST.
