Greensboro Bar Association Community Involvement Committee Is Working On Worthy Projects

The Community Involvement Committee has been helping to serve meals at the Greensboro Urban Ministry's community kitchen, known as the Potter's House.  On the third Sunday of each month, five members of the bar association volunteer their time and help serve about 300-350 meals at the Sunday brunch.  

The committee also participates in the City of Greensboro's Adopt-A-Park program, and we have adopted Sussmans Park, a 14-acre park near Hampton Homes and Florida Avenue.  The City has installed an Adopt-A-Park sign announcing that the park has been adopted by the Greensboro Bar Association.  Last Saturday, 10 bar members planted flowers around the park, spread mulch around trees, picked up litter and debris, did some weedwhacking, and painted colorful hopscotch lines on the concrete slab.  

The committee is close to announcing a new project involving donating old, unused office supplies to the Teacher Supply Warehouse operated by the Guilford Education Alliance for the benefit of teachers and students in the Guilford County Schools.  

Anyone wanting to be a part of these worthy projects should contact the committee chair Jim Bryan, at Nexsen Pruet.
