Around 40 Davenport Evans lawyers, staff, and family members continued the firm’s annual holiday tradition of volunteering at The Banquet, a feeding ministry, on December 19. The meal served 248 adults and 10 children.

We also gave out winter gloves donated by individuals and purchased through a Thrivent grant secured by legal assistant Martha Nelson. (Thanks, Martha!)

The Banquet relies on volunteer groups to sponsor, prepare, and serve meals to their guests. It only takes 6 people to prepare, and 20 people minimum to serve, a meal. There are new openings for individuals who wish to join existing groups, as well. Learn more here about volunteering as a group, and individual or special event volunteer opportunities at The Banquet.
