Butzel Long donates $5,000 to Gleaners providing 15,000 meals to neighbors in need

DETROIT, Mich. – Butzel Long is responding to meet the needs of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic by donating $5,000 to Gleaners. The donation through the Butzel Long Charitable Trust, will provide 15,000 meals to neighbors in need.

Butzel Long has been a longtime supporter of Gleaners. Over the years, the firm hosted a PB & J fundraiser for Gleaners and collected boxes of cereal during a food drive for kids, to name a few.

Throughout the year, Butzel Long supports many local organizations, charities, and community activities in an effort to give back to the City that it has been located in for more than 160 years.

“The current health and economic crisis has been devastating to our community,” said Paul M. Mersino, attorney and shareholder at Butzel Long and Trustee of its Charitable Trust. “A growing number of families are looking to Gleaners to secure nourishing food that they may not otherwise be able to obtain elsewhere right now. Gleaners is a vital link in our community especially during these unprecedented times. Butzel Long is proud to be able to assist Gleaners and those in need.”
