With all of the help and blessings the lawyers and staff of Curcio Law have received over the past 30+ years, we try to “pay it forward” as much as possible. From donating to charitable causes, volunteering at events, or sponsoring charity marathons, we truly try to put as much as we can into the community around us.
This year, partnering up with Injury Board, an association of professional trial attorneys who pool their time, talents, and resources to strengthen local communities, we at Curcio Law will be visiting our local Ronald McDonald House of Northern Virginia.
Whether it be recovering from an injury or receiving treatment for an illness, each year, millions of children and families spend several weeks or months away from home and in hospitals to receive care for their child’s health. These houses are sanctuaries for them, created so they can focus on their children instead of finding a place to stay and worrying about the cost.
September 17th is Injury Board’s Day of Action with more than 40 firms participating nationwide and to do our part to help improve the health and well-being of children and families, we want to provide all of our support and assistance to these families with sick or injured children. This outreach program really hits home as the staff members at Curcio Law think of our own families and children, and how fortunate we are that we are alive and well.
When considering the types of assistance we could offer, many of us weighed in on the decision. Julia, Tom’s paralegal, opted to help weed and set up the garden for the Ronald McDonald house. Ally, our new receptionist, thought a variety of goody bags would be a grand idea, from lunch bags, amusement kits, to toiletry supplies. However, Tom hit the jackpot when he suggested, “Let’s cook a meal.”
Sometimes one forgets how special eating a home-cooked meal is. Everyone sitting around the table, talking, catching up on their busy days, lavishing praise on the amazing chef for their delectable feast, no worries in the world besides who is going to get the last piece and who is going to clean the dishes. For many of us, this happens rarely, usually around holidays when the meal becomes stressful due to a need to have the perfect turkey or holiday roast. Sometimes having the family alive, well, and all together, is taken for granted and once lost, it can be incredibly difficult to find.
When it comes to healing and being comforted, sometimes just having a communal kitchen full of amateur chefs laughing and doing all the work is all that is needed to bring some light and life into a forlorn place.
Curcio Law prides itself on being a very welcoming, familial place. We constantly refer to ourselves as the Curcio Law family, and this year on September 17th, we will extending that hand to everyone at the Ronald McDonald House of Northern Virginia.
