McNair Honored With Spirit of the Midlands Award
United Way of the Midlands presented its 2015 Spirit of the Midlands Award for Corporate Leadership to McNair Law Firm at the organization’s Major Firms CEO Breakfast on May 7 in Columbia.
The law firm was recognized for its overall spirit of giving through contributions of time, leadership and resources in support of United Way’s work in the priority issues of student success, financial stability and health access.
McNair’s philanthropic efforts in 2014 included raising funds for the United Way of the Midlands through its annual workplace campaign, logging nearly 3,700 hours in pro-bono legal service, providing a Thanksgiving meal for women and children at Sistercare, and organizing a coat drive for Transitions Homeless Shelter, to name a few.
“Supporting communities through giving, advocacy and volunteerism has long been a cornerstone of McNair,” said Managing Shareholder David Tigges. “As a law firm, we believe that we have a responsibility to give back to the communities from which we receive so much. We are proud to partner with United Way of the Midlands to see this duty fulfilled.”
