Murthy Law Firm Gives Back to the Community05 Jun 2019
Last week, ten Murthy Law Firm employees spent a rewarding day of service, volunteering at the Baltimore Humane Society. In between raking leaves, cleaning cages, and cuddling the adoptable dogs, cats, rabbits, and hamsters, the group learned how the organization finds good homes for countless animals every year. This outing was part of the Murthy Law Firm’s community service program, which encourages firm employees to engage in volunteer activities. A limited number of volunteers are approved each quarter. This ensures that smooth operations at the office continue; since, of course, our clients’ needs are our priority.
As well as the Baltimore Humane Society, the Murthy Law Firm routinely partners with other local charitable organizations for events designed to stir excitement about volunteering at the local level. Some of these organizations include the House of Ruth, which provides a safe haven and resources to victims of domestic violence, and Paul’s Place, which offers hot meals and other services to those in financial need. Opportunities during the holiday season include the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, which helps to sort toy donations for more than 4,000 children in need, in addition, and several events with the United Way of Central Maryland – a toy drive and pop-up holiday market that offers access to health screenings, flu shots, and job recruitment services along with fun and holiday cheer for families enduring hardship. A number of Murthy Law Firm employees participate in the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Baltimore Annual Red Shoe Shuffle 5k Run / Walk in the spring, to help provide temporary housing for critically ill children and their families who come to the Baltimore area for medical treatment. The MurthyNAYAK Foundation covers a portion of the registration fees for firm participants.
The MurthyNAYAK Foundation, is a nonprofit family foundation established by Murthy Law Firm founder and president Sheela Murthy and her husband, Vasant Nayak, which is involved in many good works in the U.S. and India. Sheela Murthy strongly believes that giving to charitable causes enriches the lives of the volunteers as well as those they serve. Judging by the enthusiasm of her employees when it comes to helping out, and the team-building that is a natural off-shoot, these service days are a win-win for everyone.
