United States: Kilpatrick Townsend Once Again Gives Back At Annual Partners & Counsel Retreat
Last Updated: May 30 2013

At Kilpatrick Townsend's recent annual Partners & Counsel Retreat in Las Vegas, our attorneys continued a long-standing tradition of giving back to our host city. This year we helped Walter Bracken Academy, a charter school that serves a predominately low income population.

In connection with the firm's education-based community leadership, one group of attorneys built eight large bookshelves while another group assembled 175 literacy kits for K-2nd graders. Each literacy kit contained a:

  • drawstring backpack 
  • notebook 
  • Leap Frog reading workbook 
  • book 
  • box of pencils 
  • box of pens 
  • eraser 
  • bookmark 
  • pack of letter flashcards 
  • pack of word flashcards 
  • reading light

Also, both teams painted tiles that were ultimately put together to create a beautiful literacy-themed mural that will hang in the school's library.

At an event during the retreat, Katie Decker, the principal of the school joined the attorneys, and we surprised her with 250 books to fill her new bookshelves, a $100 Office Depot gift card to buy school supplies, and five $25 Visa gift cards for her to give to her teachers as teacher appreciation gifts.

Walter Bracken has highlighted the firm on the school's website (click here) and Facebook page (click here).
