Interact of Wake County

Interact of Wake County is the only provider of domestic violence and sexual assault services in Wake County, North Carolina. Domestic violence and sexual assault survivors are often left with nothing when they leave an abusive home. In an effort to brighten the holidays for families starting over, InterAct hosts an annual Holiday Bazaar in which their agency is transformed into a store where parents can “shop” to choose toys and gifts for their children — and children can choose gifts for their parents too!


InterAct is collecting gifts until 5pm TODAY at 1012 Oberlin Road. They are most in need of gifts for boys and girls ages 6-12 and teenagers.

UNC Children’s Hospital Toy Drive

This year Whitley Law Firm is continuing the holiday season for those less fortunate by hosting a toy drive until Valentine’s Day for the UNC Children’s Hospital.

We are accepting all new and unwrapped toys that weight less than 20 lbs. No religous items, food, or drinks please. For specific suggestions of gifts or to learn more about the children’s hospital click here.

Wake County Animal Center Donation


In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, Whitley Law Firm donated $5,000 to Wake County Animal Center. Our donation will help the animal shelter partially cover adoption fees for families looking

to adopt a pet this December. If you would like to adopt an animal it is $25 for dogs (normally $95) and $10 for cats (normally $45) this month. Hopefully, these deserving animals will find a forever home this holiday. Our attorneys are so happy to help local families looking to adopt and the animals themselves move out of the shelter and into their new home!

Feeding the Hungry with Urban Ministries

Ben-Whitley-Urband-Ministries[2]The Whitley Law Firm received the opportunity during the holiday season of 2014 to give back to the community by partnering with Urban Ministries to feed those in need. Through our “click” drive, we committed to donating $1 to Urban Ministries of Wake County for each new “like” we received on our Facebook page. With the efforts of this organization, each dollar was able to provide food for one hungry individual in the county for the entire day. The efforts of this organization are useful in providing both food and healthcare to those in need throughout Wake County.

Food Drive for the Hungry

For the past two years, the Whitley Law Firm has been a part of feeding the hungry by being a host law firm for the North Carolina Advocates for Justice Annual Food Drive. As a host of the food drive, we have collected non-perishable food items which we then donate to local food banks throughout Raleigh and Eastern North Carolina.

Food DriveEvery year, the North Carolina Advocates for Justice come together to help fight against poverty all throughout North Carolina. The food drive ran from November 10 to November 25 this year. During that time, the Whitley Law Firm was a key figure in collecting food items at their Kinston, Raleigh, and New Bern offices. Combined, our offices were able to donate 90 lbs of food to various food shelters in North Carolina.
