OGR Stock Denton are delighted to announce that the firm will be participating in Mitzvah day this year.
Mitzvah Day is a day of social action led by members of the Jewish faith, which brings together thousands of people of all faiths and none to make a difference to their local communities. It is the largest multi-faith day of social action in the UK, with 40,000 volunteers contributing more than 150,000 hours of their time in 2016.
It brings together people of all ages, faiths and backgrounds, to volunteer side-by-side and build longstanding, genuine relationships.
Social Action projects make a vital difference to the world around us and can include a wide variety of activities.
This year the firm decided to donate items to a charity called “Separated Child UK”. The Separated Child Foundation offers emotional, social, financial and physical support to separated children and young people in Britain up to the age of 21. They also engage in educational activities that raise awareness of their needs and encourage positive responses to them. Separated children arrive in the UK exhausted, dishevelled, vulnerable and traumatised.
Ben Menahem, Senior Associate at OGR Stock Denton LLP, said: “Mitzvah Day is a wonderful opportunity to bring together people from a diverse range of backgrounds to make a difference for an equally diverse range of people locally.
“I am delighted that we have been able to play a part here at OGR Stock Denton LLP and help make a real difference to some of the most vulnerable members of our local community.
“Here at OGR Stock Denton LLP, we are committed to contributing positively to our local community and I would like to thank our team for their donations.”
OGR Stock Denton LLP is a long-standing supporter of the Mitzvah Day initiative and will continue to support this in the near future.
