Earlier this week, we received heartbreaking news that Sandi’s father, Jerry, passed away. Sandi, our passionate Office Manager, has always attributed her extreme work ethic to him and loved him dearly.
Read his obituary here.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests we remember Jerry by doing a kind act for a child or to donate in his memory to a charity of one’s choice. In his honor, Whitley Law Firm will be hosting a toy drive for UNC Children’s Hospital until February 13. We will be collecting donations at our Raleigh office located in 3301 Benson Drive, Suite 120, Raleigh, NC 27609. We will then spend Valentine’s Day, February 14, delivering these gifts and spending time with the children!
Additionally, we will match donations made via our Facebook fundraising link.
