In the Community
Since Harris Lowry Manton LLP’s inception, our firm has shared a strong commitment to giving back to the community and to making a positive impact across Georgia.
Throughout the year, our partners, associates and staff join forces to support a wide range of important causes. Community-based initiatives at Harris Lowry Manton LLP include the following:
Harris Lowry Manton LLP Honors Legacy of John Lewis with Portrait Unveiling and Donation to John and Lillian Miles Lewis Foundation
Harris Lowry Manton LLP held a special ceremony on April 2, 2021, to unveil its commissioned portrait of the late U.S. Congressman and Civil Rights leader John Lewis. The portrait was the work of acclaimed Atlanta-based artist Patrick Lewis. During the ceremony, the firm presented a $5,000 donation to the John and Lillian Miles Lewis Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to continue the legacy of Congressman Lewis and his wife Lillian Miles Lewis.
Harris Lowry Manton LLP Announces New “Banded Together” Campaign
Harris Lowry Manton LLP recently launched its “Banded Together” campaign, designed to encourage vaccination throughout Georgia, and to help support the educational needs of children who have lost parents and guardians in the pandemic by creating and funding scholarship opportunities for those children. Green wristbands which read “PROUD TO BE VACCINATED – BANDED TOGETHER” were delivered to Fulton County Department of Health vaccination sites in Atlanta and at Coastal Health District of Georgia vaccination sites in Savannah, to be given to those who are vaccinated.
FIRST RESPONDER APPRECIATION CELEBRATION
For seven consecutive years, we have provided free hot lunches, giveaway items and more for local paramedics, firefighters, police officers and emergency medical responders in Savannah. The event, which typically takes place on Chatham County’s First Responder Appreciation Day or National First Responder Appreciation Day, is an important way for us to express our gratitude for everything first responders do for the community.
HARRIS LOWRY MANTON LLP CIVIL JUSTICE SCHOLARSHIP
Each fall, our firm’s partners present the Harris Lowry Manton Civil Justice Scholarship to an outstanding law student. The annual $5,000 scholarship is designed to support aspiring attorneys with a strong commitment to justice and to give back to individuals with a passion for the legal field. In 2020, we received more than 150 applicants for this competitive scholarship.
BOX LUNCH DONATIONS FOR FRONT-LINE CORONAVIRUS WORKERS
In March and April 2020, we joined forces with Empire State South, a midtown Atlanta restaurant owned and operated by Chef Hugh Acheson, to donate 100 box lunches a day to local healthcare workers and first responders on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. We donated lunches to healthcare workers at Piedmont Atlanta Hospital and Grady Ponce de Leon Infectious Disease Center and to first responders at police precincts and fire/EMS locations throughout downtown and midtown Atlanta.
FACE MASK DONATIONS FOR FIRST RESPONDERS
In April 2020, we collaborated with Nine Line Apparel to donate 1,000 free protective masks to Savannah-area first responders serving on the front line of the battle against the spread of the Coronavirus. Organizations receiving mask donations included the Savannah Fire Department, Savannah Police Department, Chatham EMS, Chatham County Sheriff’s Office and Chatham County Police Department.
