Terry Brown organizes drive for Ranson Middle School's "Secret Pantry"
Horack Talley's Terry Brown, an associate in our litigation practice, organized a drive to stock the secret pantry and hygiene closet at Ranson Middle School in Charlotte. The donated goods will be available in a private area of the school, where students and their parents may "shop" free of charge for these essentials.
A friendly competition between Horack Talley's two floors in the One Wells Fargo building provided Terry with boxes filled with personal hygiene items, non perishable foods and snacks to deliver to the Ranson Middle School where 80% of students receive free or reduced lunch. The supplies collected by Horack Talley lawyers and staff will help students focus on getting the best education they can instead of being self-conscious or hungry throughout the day.
The drive was made possible by a collaboration between Urban League of the Central Carolinas Young Professionals group, of which Terry is a member, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.
