Helping America's Most Vulnerable

Pierce Atwood Attorneys and Staff Build New Retaining Wall at Bayview Heights

The finished wall is an amazing accomplishment and thing of beauty.

Pierce Atwood LLP is a leading New England commercial law firm headquartered in Portland, Maine and is recognized nationally and internationally in selected areas of expertise.  Besides many financial and volunteer charitable activities, the firm hosts an annual Day of Community Service event for all staff and attorneys. Each year, GreaterPortland non-profit organizations are invited to respond to the RFP. The firm closes for business one day each year so that all employees can participate in a pre-selected activity. This year, Volunteers of America Northern New England was truly fortunate to be chosen along with several other area organizations.  

Two dozen Pierce Atwood volunteers helped with two major projects to assist the low-income seniors living at our Bayview Heights located on North Steet in Munjoy Hill. 

They worked miracles creating a new retaining wall that would not have been possible without their help. Thanks to their generosity and hard work they have certainly more than lived up to their goal: "We hope that our work not only improved the properties we worked on, but more importantly, improved the lives of the people with whom we come in contact."    

They wanted to do hard work outside and, as you can see, we gladly made their wish come true. The first step was removing the previous retaining wall...no simple task. 
Thank you everyone at Pierce Atwood for your generosity and service.  You have made an important difference and we are truly grateful! If your organization would like a volunteer opportunity designed to meet your unique needs, please contact us at help@voanne.orgor 207-373-1140.  Thank you!
