Once a hero, always a hero. Allen & Allen Cares: Helping Our Heroes is the Allen Law Firm’s community giving program, which connects former Allen & Allen Hometown Heroes with grants to aid their local nonprofits.
Each month, Allen & Allen awards a $1,000 charitable donation to a different 501 (C)(3) organization, to support everyday heroes who make a difference in their communities.
In 2010, in honor of the firm’s 100th anniversary, Allen & Allen kicked off its Hometown Heroes program to honor those helping make our communities better places to live, work, and play. Since then, the firm has honored over 450 heroes across central Virginia.
The Allen Law Firm’s founder, George E. Allen, Sr. said: “The more of our lives we give to others, the fuller and richer, the greater and the grander, the more beautiful and more happy our own lives become…our love, our service, our helpfulness to others invariably comes back to us.” The firm stands by this guiding principle to this day.
