TBHR established a fund with contributions from employees, matched by
the firm, with the goal of purchasing supplies for three first grade
classes. In the end, the Team raised enough funds to purchase supplies
for the entire first grade.

supplies the first graders would need for the start of their year,
including plenty of pencils, markers, crayons, erasers, scissors,
rulers, glue sticks, addition flash cards and water
bottles.Representatives from TBHR’s Community Team, joined by attorneys
Albert DeNapoli, Mark Furman
and Terrence Schwab, gave classroom supply bags to each child in all
six of the school’s first grade classrooms. Al DeNapoli remarked that
the assembly process was a great team project for TBHR and added, “We
really appreciate the hard work of our Community Team. Everyone at the
firm was excited to help them with this project.”
Simon Ho, principal of the Josiah Quincy Elementary
School, greeted the firm’s representatives while they were delivering
the supplies to one of the classrooms. “I’m so appreciative of
everything [TBHR] is doing for our children,” said Ho. Beverly Ryan, one
of the school’s first grade teachers, echoed the principal’s

Josiah Quincy Elementary School enrolls children in grades K – 5.
More than three-quarters of its students come from low-income
households and receive free or reduced school lunch. In tough economic
times when school systems are squeezed by budget demands, the burden
of acquiring enough school supplies for students often falls upon
teachers and school administrators. In addition to providing the
school children with supplies, the TBHR Community Team purchased cases
of tissues and hand sanitizer for the first grade classrooms. “The
response we’ve received from our employees has been excellent. Everyone
has been eager to help these kids,” said Mark Furman.
The TBHR Community Team is comprised of three
attorneys, Jennifer Civitella Hilario, Karen L. McKenna and Terrence M.
Schwab, paralegal Jackie Scott, and four legal assistants, Christine
Courtney, Nakeisha Johnson, Jennifer McGill and Jessica Spruill. Ms.
McGill, one of the organizers for this project, said the team looks
forward to continuing its work with the Josiah Quincy Elementary School,
and noted TBHR hopes to host an event later this year to solicit
donations for providing hats, gloves and winter coats to the school’s
children in need.
