Project Cheer 2020
2020 was the Year of Change for O’Connor Law. We celebrated and navigated many new experiences, such as operating in our first full year as O’Connor Law (previously Michael J. O’Connor & Associates), conducting business via a fully-virtual office, and of course… living within a pandemic.
Naturally, we were not immune to the obstacles of 2020, and were forced to adjust by sacrificing some of our favorite traditions. However, we were thrilled these circumstances did not interrupt one of our favorite holiday traditions! For the second consecutive year, O’Connor Law and its staff participated in Frackville’s Project Cheer.
Social Security Paralegal Jamie Wolfgang organized O’Connor Law’s participation once again. Jamie started our tradition in 2019 when she learned about the 2nd annual Project Cheer. Since it was such an immense success, and our firm loved participating, she knew it was a no brainer for 2020 as well. Jamie collected contributions, purchased items for donation and delivered them to the Project Cheer Ceremony.
Project Cheer is the creation of Heather and Anthony Kankowski; It aims to deliver exactly what its name would suggest: Holiday Cheer. In 2020, Project Cheer was able to invite the families of 13 children from Frackville to the ceremony. Pizza, snacks, and drinks were served, and Santa met with the children alongside Mrs. Claus.
We are thrilled to be able to continue this tradition, and are looking forward to Project Cheer 2021! For information on how you can participate in Project Cheer 2021, email firstname.lastname@example.org or check out their Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/projectcheer.
