The holiday season is a special time of year when more people take the time to give back to their community, whether it be through volunteer work, monetary donations or other ways. Members of the Firm team also make an effort to give back to the community throughout the year.
For Amy Fair, RN and head of the medical department at the Firm, volunteering is a yearly must-do. For the past three years, Fair has been organizing a group of employees to volunteer at the St. Louis Veterans Home. Specifically, the group sacrifices their time and efforts to help out at the annual Thanksgiving Dinner, serving meals to more than 800 veterans.
“Volunteering can seem like a chore, especially during the holidays,” Fair said in an employee newsletter, “but…it always benefits those who give ten times over.”
Fair is also a board member for the Firm Employee Foundation where she serves as Volunteer Coordinator, is a coordinator for the Firm’s Adopt-A-Family Christmas program and helped organize the firm’s recent food drive. Fair was recognized by the Alton Branch of the NAACP during its 43rd Annual NAACP Freedom Fund Banquet in 2011. This recognition is awarded to individuals who go the extra mile to help build a better community.
“I don’t have the financial means to change the world, but my volunteer work can,” Fair said in an Alton Telegraph article published in July 2011. “The Firm helps me do that.”
