During the months of January and February, BrownWinick collected items and raised funds for the House of Mercy. BrownWinick was able to collect five boxes of items, which included personal hygiene items, baby wipes, water bottles and notebooks, as well as boxes of diapers. The House of Mercy was also the selected charity for one of BrownWinick’s jeans days where attorneys and staff are allowed to wear jeans in exchange for a donation. Through the jeans day and the collection of cash donations and gift cards, BrownWinick was able to give $280 in cash and gift cards to House of Mercy.
