Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers helped bring Thanksgiving cheer to some of Norfolk’s homeless and needy residents by supporting the Thanksgiving meal at the Basilica of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception.
A donation from Cooper Hurley helped the organizers buy food as more than 100 people showed up for the meal in the church fellowship hall on November 28. Organizers brought 30 turkeys for the meal.
Ashley Womack, the Basilica Thanksgiving Committee Chair, said the meal was aimed at Tidewater Garden residents, downtown Norfolk residents, students, the military, the homeless and those who were lonely at Thanksgiving. She said it was indicative of the “true Holiday spirit.”
“An event such as this will not only serve to provide a meal, but it will also provide a place of warmth and comfort during what is often a difficult time for our fellow residents,” she said.
The event has been running for four years and provides “fellowship and food,” she said.
“We would like to thank Cooper Hurley for contributing to our event. Their donation helped purchase a lot of the things we used; some of our turkeys and some of the food,” she said.
“We are just very thankful that they took part in joining with the community to help support people.”
Benjamin Patterson, of the Knights of Peter Claver, a lay Catholic organization, said the event was inclusive and provided a meal for the homeless or anybody in need at Thanksgiving.
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers support many good causes and community events. On November 23, Cooper Hurley supported the Jingle Bell Run/Walk which raised money for the Arthritis Foundation, at Old Dominion University in Norfolk.
