Law Firm Provides More Than 93,000 Meals and 313 Coats for Local FamiliesNov 19, 2021 Giving KNR Cares Press Release
Akron, OH – Kisling, Nestico & Redick (KNR) held its ninth annual Coats & Cans for Kids Turkey Giveaway today at their main office in Fairlawn. The partners at KNR gave away 1,000 turkeys to local families in need. Those who received turkeys were asked to pay it forward by donating a non-perishable food item or a gently used coat, which were donated immediately to help other families.
“This is my favorite event of the year,” said Rob Nestico, Founding Partner of KNR. “Our turkey giveaway brings the community together, which is something I think we all need this year. It’s heartwarming to see so many people and to know we are truly making a difference.”
KNR collected more than 3,500 pounds of food that was donated to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.
“The holiday season is about gathering together and sharing a meal with those who mean the most to us,” said Dan Flowers, President and CEO of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. “The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank is grateful to partner with Kisling, Nestico & Redick to provide 1,000 turkeys to our neighbors in need this holiday season. KNR’s commitment to our community and hosting this annual event is admirable.”
In addition to the turkeys and canned goods, KNR collected 313 coats that were donated to Volunteers of America (VOA). VOA is a non-profit that provides affordable housing and other assistance to lower income people in the community.
“While the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, it can also be a very stressful time,” says John Reagan, Managing Partner at KNR. “Knowing we are helping parents provide a warm meal for their families and providing kids with coats to keep them safe during the winter season is meaningful work. Helping others is what it’s all about.”
