Fostering Excellence in Professionalism, Ethics, Civility, and Legal Skills

Community Outreach Programs

As a member of the American Inns of Court, the Doris Jonas Freed Inn is involved in a community outreach program. Outreach involves hosting, mentoring or providing activities that promote our Inn's movement in the legal community and public in general.
Here are some of our recent efforts: 
On Saturday, October 13, 2018, members of the Doris Jonas Freed Matrimonial Inn of Court participated in the Chester County, Pennsylvania Light the Night Walk held by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  The one mile walk, which is held all over the country, helps to raise money to benefit research and patient advocacy efforts for persons suffering from Leukemia and other blood cancers.  The Inn's team, the Running Objections, raised approximately $1,000.00 towards this worthwhile cause. Inn Member, Mary Cushing Doherty, also served as the Walk's keynote speaker, reflecting on her late Husband's battle with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. 

In 2017, for our first community outreach activity, the members of the Inn have organized a clothing drive through Career Wardrobe, a non-profit organization in Philadelphia.  Career Wardrobe focuses on providing low or no cost work wear to men and women trying to reenter the workforce so that they have appropriate interview and work attire to obtain and maintain employment.  According to their website, 67% of their clients gain employment and discontinue cash assistance. Further information on the organization can be found in the attached document or on their website, careerwardrobe.org.
