Gentry Locke again named to “Most Generous Workplaces” List by United Way of Roanoke Valley
Listed at #15; sole law firm on Top 25 list
Gentry Locke has again been named to the United Way of Roanoke Valley’s list of “Most Generous Workplaces.” We are listed as the 15th most generous workplace in the Roanoke Valley, and are the only law firm on the top 25 list. The list of Top 50 counts philanthropic contributions to the United Way workplace campaign made by both organizations and employees.
Gentry Locke receives a lot of awards and accolades throughout the year. We consider this placement a high honor. It speaks volumes about our caring people and how important we know it is to contribute to the wellbeing of our community.
Gentry Locke attorneys Kelsey Martin and Alicha Grubb led our 2018 United Way campaign. Staff and attorneys opened their hearts and their checkbooks for a total contribution of more than $34,000. Our 2018 participation surpassed that of 2017.
In an article published by The Roanoke Times, United Way Board chair Kerry Edmonds stated that the list represents companies whose “…investments of time, money and passion are making tremendous improvements in the health, education, and financial stability of our region.”
