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:
FIRST RESPONDER APPRECIATION CELEBRATION
For 10 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.
