The Lewis, King, Krieg and Waldrop, P.C., law firm recently celebrated the holidays by making donations to several area social service organizations.
“We’re big believers in giving back to our community and do so by generously donating our time and financial resources,” said shareholder Richard W. Krieg. “We’re proud to support groups that help children, seniors, minorities and the underprivileged, as well as those that promote health and wellness, education and the arts.”
This year’s donations went to CASA of East Tennessee, Hope Resource Center, Free Medical Clinic and the Love Kitchen.
Linda Glasgow, human resources director, says that the tradition of giving back at the holidays began more than 15 years ago and was initially led by the firm’s support staff. “We held bake sales and silent auctions to help raise funds. In those early years, we called it our Christmas Charity. As more people became involved, particularly lawyers, we decided to form a 501(c)(3), and Lewis King Charitable Giving was born.”
The firm also is active in the community. Lewis King was recently recognized by the Knoxville Bar Association for its support of the Knoxville Barristers’ Mobile Meals project, led by shareholder Ben Jones. In addition to Jones, Lewis King attorneys Katrina Atchley Arbogast, Joseph Ballard, Brad Craig, Preston Hawkins, Chris McCarty, Marshall Stair and Paul Whitt volunteered with the program along with secretary Amy Davis.
Paralegals Cathy Hulsey, Tracie Livesay, Barbara Miller and Jackie Wilson also donated their time.
Lewis King also placed first in Second Harvest Food Bank’s 2012 “Total Pounds + Bonus Pounds” food drive competition and was a covenant partner in Knoxville Habitat for Humanity’s 2012 Multi-House Blitz Build. As a covenant partner, Lewis King and 11 other sponsors donated considerable volunteer time and financial resources to support a build of six houses in seven days on Skyline Drive in east Knoxville.
Lewis King was founded in 1960 and today has 58 attorneys in its three offices in Nashville, Knoxville and Sevierville.
