McLane Middleton Donates Backpacks as Part of Centennial Celebration

As part of its annual backpack drive, McLane Middleton, Professional Association donated 419 backpacks to The Manchester Salvation Army and Woburn Council of Social Concern.   The backpack drive is part of  the firm’s year-long Centennial celebration focused on its clients, the community, and its colleagues. 


Each month during 2019, McLane Middleton makes a donation to the community based on the number “100.”  The firm exceeded their goal of donating at least 100 backpacks more than their 2018 backpack drive, with a total 2019 donation of 419 backpacks. The backpack drive was made possible with contributions from colleagues in each of the firm’s five locations.


The Manchester Salvation Army is dedicated to changing people’s lives. They offer a variety of programs and services throughout the community. Each year, they organize a back to school drive to provide backpacks and school supplies to families in need.


The Woburn Council of Social Concern was founded in 1969 by a group of concerned citizens who wanted to promote a sense of "neighborliness" in the community and address the absence of quality, affordable childcare and housing issues.  Today, they assist approximately 2,200 individuals per year, with the support of approximately 200 volunteers via a range of services to address community needs, including: safe, affordable, quality child care through its Children's Center and Family Childcare System; parenting education and supervised visitation services through its Family Skill Building Program; and food assistance and community resource education through its Food Pantry.


The delivery to The Manchester Salvation Army was made by Ashley LaPointe, an administrative assistant, and Brittany Piet, a Trusts & Estates Paralegal.  Laura McKelligott Kahl, an associate in the firm’s Litigation Department, made the delivery to the Woburn Council of Social Concern.
