WILMINGTON, DEL.—Womble Carlyle attorneys, staff members and family members joined citizens across America in honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through community service.

The service project was part of the Delaware State Bar Association’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. The service day took place Monday, Jan. 18th—the federal holiday honoring Dr. King.

  • Mark Desgrosseilliers, Daniel Attaway, Kristie Dalton, her daughter Maddie, Heidi Sasso and her son Sereno served meals at the Emmanuel Dining Rooms, which provide free, nutritious meals in a clean, cheerful environment to Delaware’s hungry.
  • Matthew Ward and his daughter Dana sorted food and prepared care packages at the Sunday Breakfast Mission, a charity that provides food and shelter to the area’s homeless.
  • Stephanie Quinn assembled on-the-go meals for families at the Ronald McDonald House, while Kevin Mangan helped the Ronald McDonald House put on an evening of fun, including an ice cream social and bingo game, for families staying at the house.

Desgrosseilliers, Mangan and Ward also attended the DSBA’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast. Veteran civil rights attorney Fred Gray was the featured speaker at the event. Gray represented both Dr. King and Rosa Parks during the Civil Rights Era.

Womble Carlyle was a sponsor of the event.
