Weld Riley, S.C. – Giving Back
As Weld Riley, S.C. celebrated 25 years of service to individuals, businesses and other organizations in western Wisconsin in 2016, we also wanted to spend some time serving the community.
In December, a group of attorneys and staff decided to spend a morning packing 25,000 meals for kids and families around the area. They called it their “Silver Service Day,” in honor of 25 years of service at Weld Riley. The meals are comprised of rice, vegetables and nutrient powder and vacuum packed into plastic bags designed to feed a family of six.
It’s that kind of community service that is typical of a law firm which serves, among others, numerous public entities like cities, counties and school districts.
Both attorneys and staff members say events like this help reinforce the giving spirit, especially around the holidays.
This is not the first time staff members and attorneys have given their time and talents to help organizations in western Wisconsin. They say it’s a spirit of giving back that permeates the firm.
Since the firm started back in 1991, original partner Steve Weld says volunteerism and service has been a cornerstone of what it means to be an attorney at Weld Riley.
“I think we want to be leaders in the community, and we believe we can provide support to groups in the community. We’re proud of being in the Chippewa Valley, and so we actively encourage our lawyers to give back in whatever way they would like,” Weld says.
With firm locations in Eau Claire, Menomonie, Wausau and Black River Falls, there are ample opportunities for Weld Riley attorneys and staff to help out and get involved.
