Ellin & Tucker is pleased to announce that Grace Wickwire has been appointed chair of the firm’s Giving Back Committee. The Giving Back Committee is a passionate, dedicated team of Ellin & Tucker employees who organize community service events, donation drives and internal fundraisers that benefit the causes and organizations that are making a positive impact in the Greater Baltimore community.
Grace joined the firm’s marketing team in 2016 and immediately took a vested interest in the committee’s philanthropic and volunteer initiatives. Since that time, she has worked diligently to organize and execute a number of events with the committee including events for local organizations such as Moveable Feast, The Baltimore Humane Society and Art With a Heart.
“In my time working with the Giving Back Committee I’ve witnessed how powerful it can be when we all come together in support of a cause as a firm.” Grace adds, “Ellin & Tucker is proud to call Baltimore home and as a part of this community we want to make an effort to help our neighbors overcome the challenges that they are experiencing.”
Though in-person volunteering events and fundraisers are on hold, local not-for-profits are still relying on volunteers and donations for assistance. “Our support is needed more than ever and I’m looking forward to working with the Giving Back Committee to find creative ways for the firm to make a difference,” the newly appointed committee chair states. “We have to be aware of what obstacles our community is facing now, amidst COVID-19 and think about how we can help them tackle those obstacles through our efforts.”
