Boston, MA, October 11, 2017 – International law firm Brown Rudnick donated over $50,000 to assist communities impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Donations were organized through the Firm’s Brown Rudnick Center for the Public Interest, the umbrella entity that encompasses Brown Rudnick’s pro bono, charitable giving and community involvement efforts.
Last month, the Firm donated over $27,000 to the Texas Access to Justice Foundation’s Hurricane Harvey Legal Aid Fund in support of providing legal representation to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath.
This month, Brown Rudnick donated nearly $26,000 to hurricane disaster relief for Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Florida. This donation was made to the One America Appeal, created by the five living former U.S. Presidents, who have united together to raise money for relief efforts in areas impacted by these storms. The Fund is administered by the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation.
According to Brown Rudnick’s CEO, Joseph F. Ryan, “The recent hurricanes that hit Texas, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and parts of Florida have caused extensive damage, taken lives and left thousands more without water, food, shelter, power, transportation or other basic services. I am very proud that our firm came together to help hurricane victims in these affected communities.”
In the past, through the Center, Brown Rudnick has made similar contributions to humanitarian relief efforts, such as Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and the 2010 Haiti earthquake, as well as to One Boston Fund to assist those affected by the Boston Marathon bombing.
