Hancock Injury Attorneys Are Committed to Helping the Community
As attorneys, the main reason we do what we do is to help people in their times of need. Our goal is to have every single client leave our office feeling more in control of their situation than they did walking in. But, we want to extend our helping hands farther than just our clients, which is why we have started a “1% for good” campaign.
We will be donating 1% of all our revenues to local organizations that are doing their part in the community. This year the organizations we are focusing our efforts on are The Tampa Police Department and The Community Food Pantry.
We first started to work with The Community Food Pantry in 2017. We plan to continue to support the organization for years to come.
Right NOW, more than EVER, the Community Food Pantry NEEDS your help. Join us in donating what you can, whether it is money by clicking the link below, physical donations of non-perishable goods, or volunteering any little bit helps. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Food Pantry is feeding more families than ever before. Like they say, “Hunger happens to everyday people, every day.” Take action with us today:
The Community Food Pantry of Carrollwood/Northdale is committed to stopping hunger in our community. The Community Food Pantry helped feed over 45,489 North Tampa residents in 2019. This includes parents who have trouble making ends meet, seniors on fixed incomes deciding between medicine and groceries, individuals who have lost a job or are underemployed. Over 11,971 local families visited the pantry to receive groceries, a gracious welcome and emotional support as well as blood pressure screenings and information on social services. Here are some other impressive statistics for the pantry in 2019:
- 15,921 Children Fed
- 722,872 Meals Provided
- 21,548 Volunteer Hours
- 867,446 lbs. of Food Per Month Served
- 758 Nursing Visits
- 5,462 Bags of Hope
The pantry is able to share their bounty of food with other local charity organizations and has charity events throughout the year including “Everything But the Turkey” providing a Thanksgiving meal to families in need and participating in “Give Day Tampa Bay”.
Something we find unique about the pantry is that they let their clients “shop” just like in a normal grocery store. There is not a predetermined bag of groceries they receive every month. We encourage you to donate either money, food, or time to this incredible organization that betters our community.
The mission of the Tampa Police Department is to reduce crime and enhance the quality of life through a cooperative partnership with all citizens.
Organizations that we support that directly support the Tampa Police Department include:
Rise Tampa will start its work where the city budget stops. It will ensure officers are receiving the latest training, safety equipment and using cutting edge technology to keep our citizens safe while providing growth opportunities to our most underprivileged children.
When people need help, they can always rely on the Tampa Police Department to respond in full force. The budget provides the agency with all the basic tools needed to receive 911 calls and to respond swiftly to those in crisis. During the recent recession, Mayor Bob Buckhorn ensured budget cuts never reduced the number of officers patrolling our city streets. However, the agency was forced to cut back on training and purchasing the latest technology and safety equipment available in the crime fight. As a result, advanced training and specialized technology is often beyond our grasp.
The mission of the Tampa Police Benevolent Association is to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and of the State of Florida; to promote social, charitable, and educational activities; to ensure fidelity to duty under all conditions; to instill a spirit of benevolence, good will, integrity, and mutual respect among our members and the people we serve; to provide for the wellbeing of our members and their families; to promote and sustain fair and equitable treatment of its members; to provide assistance, protection, and support to members who have been treated unfairly; to prevent unfair labor practices; and to maintain the best possible working conditions and benefits for all members of the organization through the collective bargaining process.
In 1997 a group of officers met together to discuss the need for a monument to recognize our fallen officers. On December 1, 1997, the Tampa Police Memorial was officially dedicated to the community by Tampa Mayor Dick Greco and Tampa Police Chief Bennie Holder. The Tampa Police Memorial Committee efforts have provided a lasting monument to those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the citizens of Tampa. The Tampa Police Memorial has become a place for fellow officers, other law enforcement agencies, family members, and the community to visit and reflect on the honor and respect the sacrifice those engraved on the monument have made.
