The Law Firm of Gary, Williams, Parenti, Watson & Gary, P.L.L.C. and Gertrude Walden Child Care Center Sponsor and Serve Holiday Meals to Over 1500 Hungry Families for the 10th Consecutive Year
Gertrude Walden Child Care Center Calls on Gary Law Firm to Help Continue the Undertaking of Feeding Disadvantaged Families
STUART, FL – Employees of the Law Offices of Gary, Williams, Parenti, Watson and Gary, P.L.L.C. recently partnered with Gertrude Walden Child Care Center in Stuart, Florida to provide holiday meals to disadvantaged families from the community. This is the 10th consecutive year that the two organizations have joined forces for this worthwhile endeavor. The Gary Law Firm sponsored the cost of the meal as well as assisted the employees from the Gertrude Walden Child Care Center in preparing the delicious, down-home holiday meal complete with turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, dressing, dinner rolls, banana pudding and cake! Together, employee volunteers from the law firm and the child care center served the meals in celebration of the holiday season to families from the surrounding communities.Over 25 employees from the Gary Law Office donated their time for this worthwhile endeavor. Volunteers spent the afternoon cooking the food, packaging meals for take-out, replenishing food items, cleaning tables and serving those families who chose to dine-in. Families began to converge at the child care center early that afternoon in anticipation of the holiday feast. A line of people extended beyond the front door of the child care center into the adjacent parking lot. Over 1500 meals were served throughout the course of the afternoon. Nearly half of those meals were distributed during the first 90 minutes.
“My heart is always with the community,” commented Willie Gary. “I commend Gertrude Walden Child Care Center for their commitment to helping those who are less fortunate. Gertrude Walden works tirelessly to feed families in our community and I am just honored to play a small role in helping them to achieve this goal. Through this effort, we were able to provide dinners to families who, in many cases, might not have anything to eat on Christmas Eve or Christmas day. With today’s needs so prevalent and so pronounced, I’m glad we were able to sponsor this very much needed event,” continued Gary.
Known for his philanthropic endeavors, Willie Gary and his wife, Gloria Gary, founded The Gary Foundation, which provides college scholarships to at-risk students who wish to attend college. The Gary’s have pledged millions of dollars to help Historically Black Colleges and Universities – including $10 million to their alma mater Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina.

I was referred to Ricky Armand through a mutual acquaintance. I was overly happy with the resolution. Ricky was always easy to reach and he answered all my questions. As far as the case, I feel it was handled very well. I would definitely refer him to someone else, it was high quality work. I can’t think of anything that could have been improved upon. Ricky and everyone at the firm treated me top rate right from the start.
I chose the firm, and to work with Ricky in particular because I wanted someone with integrity, character and a good standing in the community. I wanted to know that I could trust them and believe that they had my best interest at hand. They performed above my expectations in all areas. I felt that their consultations with me went beyond being a client and more like a family member. The communication was frequent, and it was clear to me that they cared about justice and helping me during this very difficult circumstance. I highly recommend Ricky, he did everything possible for my case, and I was very happy with the resolution. Cameron T.
“Ricky Armand represented me. From the very beginning Ricky showed he was very professional, asking me all of the questions about the case to get a very clear picture. He helped me understand my options and kept me informed all the time. He would call or text me whenever there was an update, and if he was busy when I called, he would get back to me right away. I was very happy with the resolution and how Ricky handled everything from dealing with the insurance company to the results he was able to negotiate. I would highly recommend Ricky to anyone else that needs legal representation.” Michael B.
