Lawyers from a Finchley-based law firm marked Mitzvah Day on 27 November by providing new thermal clothing and other clothing for local homeless people.
Members of the team at OGR Stock Denton LLP donated two boxes of brand new thermal gloves, socks and neck warmers and one box of donated knitwear to Homeless in Action in Barnet in aid of Mitzvah Day.
Homeless Action in Barnet provides a night shelter for the street homeless at St-Mary-at-Finchley Church, close to the firm’s offices on Regents Park Road.
Mitzvah Day is a Jewish-led day of social action that brings thousands of people of all faiths and none together to make a difference to the local community around them. It is the largest multi-faith day of social action in the UK, with 40,000 volunteers giving their time in 2015.
Richard Denton, Managing Partner at OGR Stock Denton LLP, said: “Here at OGR Stock Denton LLP, we are committed to making a contribution to our local community.
“Mitzvah Day is a great opportunity to build on this track record and make a real difference to lives of some of the most vulnerable members of the community.”
OGR Stock Denton LLP’s involvement in Mitzvah Day follows on from its fundraising efforts as part of the Macmillan Coffee morning initiative in September, which raised more than £400 for the cause.
