Conshohocken, PA (PRWEB) May 18, 2014
Like every firehouse in America, the firefighters of Conshohocken’s Washington Fire Company #1 were deeply affected by the loss of life of both citizens and emergency response comrades on 9/11. Having been entrusted with a relic from that day, the “Washies” as they are affectionately called, recently embarked on a mission to raise the needed $75,000 for a memorial monument on the firehouse property in honor of those that lost their lives on that day. As a community member and business neighbor to the Washies, Carpey Law is working to spread the word on their efforts and help them reach their goal. You can see many instances of this on his website CarpeyLaw.com.
Carpey has been actively involved in many supportive roles stemming from 9/11 starting with his federal government volunteer trial counsel appointment for individuals injured in the World Trade Center attacks. “My staff and I often see the Washies roll out to risk their lives for their community just as their comrades did on 9/11. Spreading the word and helping financially with this fund drive is just one way that we can honor the victims of that day and show our gratitude for the sacrifices made by the 9/11 firefighters while simultaneously honoring the dedication and sacrifices of our own Washies every day, said Carpey.
The Washies have joined efforts with the Conshohocken Mayor’s Special Events Committee to raise the necessary funds to erect the publicly accessible memorial monument on the firehouse property. Donations to purchase and engrave the bricks are $60, $100, and $200 and can be ordered by calling the Mayor’s Special Events Committee at 610-825-7072 or Washies at 610-828-4293. In addition to their own donation, Carpey Law is using their website, newsletter and community access to reach out to others in the community to purchase an engraved brick that will be part of the memorial.
In addition to being a supporter of the community, the highly respected Philadelphia attorney has always been a dedicated supporter of tomorrow’s leaders. To that end, Carpey Law sponsors an annual legal essay contest that awards a one-time $500 scholarship to a deserving college or university student in the U.S. Students were tasked with choosing from topics such as pedestrian safety, medical malpractice, and eliminating incidents of texting while driving.
Carpey Law is proud to announce that this year’s winner of the annual Best Legal Essay Scholarship is Samantha Braudrick of Roswell Georgia. Samantha, who attends Saint Mary's College of California as a Communications major, hopes to one day become a broadcast journalist. “For us at Carpey Law, this is not only an ideal way to help a deserving student with their college education, but to also bring attention to legal issues that affect millions of Americans in serious ways. Our goal is always to be good stewards of the communities in which we live, as well as the broader community of Americans in as many ways as possible beyond our practice, said Carpey.
