Tully Rinckey PLLC’s “Sneakers and Jeans” Initiative Provides New Activities for Residents
March 6, 2014 –Syracuse, N.Y. – There’s a growing need for elder care in Central New York, as evidenced by a recent expansion project at one of the area’s largest rehabilitation centers. This week, Tully Rinckey PLLC stepped up to meet that need by donating from an employer-sponsored program to The Centers at St. Camillus in Syracuse.
Tully Rinckey PLLC Partner Richard Sargent – who regularly helps Central New Yorkers through the process of developing a will, trust, or estate plan – Thursday presented The Centers at St. Camillus sing-along movies, birdhouse craft kits, and watercolor paint sets. These are items The Centers’ staff said topped their wish list of items to help enhance the lives of their 280 residents. St. Camillus is one of the largest rehabilitation facilities in Central New York, founded on values of Caring, Commitment, Respect, Professionalism, and Innovation.
“Much of my career in law has focused on helping Central New York’s families ensure that their loved ones are adequately provided for in times of need through sound estate planning,” said Mr. Sargent, who has over three decades of experience practicing law. “On behalf of Tully Rinckey, I am extending this tradition of assisting the senior members of Central New York’s families to residents of St. Camillus through this donation.”
The donation was made possible by Tully Rinckey PLLC’s “Jeans and Sneakers” initiative. Under this initiative, employees who wear jeans and sneakers to the office on Fridays place a dollar in a donation box for each piece of casual clothing they wear.. At the end of the month, Tully Rinckey PLLC matches these donations dollar-for-dollar, and employees nominate a nonprofit organization they would like to see receive the funds.
Since February 2010, the firm has made monthly donations totaling more than $14,000 to over 35 employee-nominated organizations. Recipients include Western New York Heroes in Williamsville, City Mission of Schenectady, the Albany Housing Coalition’s Veterans Housing and Services, Trillium Health in Rochester, and Helping Hounds Dog Rescue in Syracuse.
In addition to providing trust and estate planning, real estate law, criminal defense, and family and matrimonial law services at its Syracuse office, Tully Rinckey PLLC also helps people navigate the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Social Security Income (SSI) process across Upstate New York. The Social Security law attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC have more than two decades of experience representing disabled New Yorkers and their surviving spouses or disabled adult children.
