SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - As temperatures get a little chilly and Christmas just days away, members of the Roden Law firm are making sure students across the Savannah-Chatham County school system have warm clothes to wear.
They unloaded hats, gloves and coats at the Student Affairs Support Services Center on Wednesday morning. Those items will then be distributed among students in the district.
“Many students across the school district do not have the basic necessities of a hat, scarf, gloves or even a coat and Roden Law firm is making sure no child goes without,” Briana Bridge said.
Eric Roden, of the Roden Law firm, says everyone isn’t as fortunate this time of year. He says they saw a need in the community and quickly jumped at the opportunity.
“I think everybody has a soft spot in their heart for kids and we started looking around at the end of the year saying what can we do to give back to the community and who can we help. We see in our line of work a lot of people and we get everybody on their worst day and that starts to both wear on you after a while and make you appreciate how fortunate you are,” Roden said.
The law firm also presented the school board with an additional $3,000 check for anything else the students may need.
