Firm supports annual holiday food & gift drive


Secrest Wardle supported Troy residents in need this holiday season by participating in the 23rd Annual Holiday Food and Gift Drive sponsored by the Troy Police Department and Alliance Mobile Health. Shelli Eiswerth, building supervisor, led the fundraising effort based upon a list of the community’s needs.

Each week throughout the year, Secrest Wardle employees in all three of the firm’s office locations are given the option to participate in “Casual Fridays.”  In exchange for a $5 cash donation, business casual attire is permitted. Employees are encouraged to suggest charities for sponsorship. During the month of December, Secrest Wardle devoted one “Casual Friday” to raising funds for the cause. The firm successfully collected $225.00 which was used to buy nine Meijer gift cards. Families will be able to use these gift cards for gifts, groceries, prescription medications and gas. Secrest Wardle employees also generously donated new men’s clothing.

The Troy Police Department and Alliance Mobile Health have collected food and gifts for residents of the Troy community for 23 years.

Community organizations aid sponsors in identifying residents who would benefit from the effort, including children that would otherwise not have received gifts during the holidays, struggling families, senior citizens with no family, or any Troy resident in need. Those interested in making a contribution to the Annual Food and Gift Drive may do so by “adopting a family,” making a monetary donation or donating food to the effort.

Secrest Wardle, a law firm specializing in defense litigation and counsel for insurance, municipal, and commercial clients, is headquartered in Troy with additional offices in Grand Rapids and Lansing.
