Raleigh, NC- The Whitley Law Firm donated $5,000 to the North Carolina Restaurant & Lodging Association Foundation and challenges other law firms across North Carolina to show their support for hospitality workers by donating to the organization. The donations help employees in the hospitality industry who are facing financial hardship obtain much-needed funding because of furloughs and reduced working hours caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Many organizations experience a decline in donations after the holiday season and the Whitley Law Firm wanted to step in to fill the void,” said Ben Whitley, partner at the Whitley Law Firm. “The hard-working men and women in the hospitality industry have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 restrictions. They do so much for us throughout the year, and now it is our turn to help them. I challenge other law firms in Raleigh and throughout North Carolina to donate to the NCRLA Foundation.”
