ELLIOTT GREENLEAF HONORS DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING

Elliott Greenleaf attorneys and staff are playing leading rolls in honoring the memory and mission of Dr. Martin Luther King.

Kate H. Harmon, Esq. of the Firm’s Wilmington office serves on the Delaware State Bar Association’s Statewide Day of Service remembering Dr. King, and is leading the service project providing hot meals to homebound senior citizens throughout Delaware.  Shelley Kinsella, Managing Shareholder of the Firm’s Wilmington office, is participating in the Habitat for Humanity service project, where she will help build affordable housing for families in need. Ms. Kinsella’s efforts to honor Dr. King’s memory were reported in Town Square Delaware.  http://townsquaredelaware.com/2017/01/18/delawareans-pitch-in-on-mlk-day-of-service/

Elliott Greenleaf also sponsored the Daniel W. Dowling American Legion #769 Martin Luther King brunch at Normandy Farms.  The Dowling Post was “formed and dedicated to Daniel W. Dowling, the first African American from the area to volunteer for Civil War service with the Union Army’s 24th US Colored Troop ((USCT) Infantry Regiment. Years later, Mr. Dowling’s son, Charles Dowling, would be the first African American in the area to be drafted for service in World War I.”   Funds raised at the brunch defray the costs of the Post’s community service and scholarship programs.
