$2000 donation meets minimum fundraising goal and allows team to purchase safety equipment.
Mobile, AL, August, 6, 2013: Greene & Phillips – Injury Lawyers donated $2000.00 to the fund for Vigor High School Football Team to purchase needed safety equipment for the 2013 season. This amount increases the total amount of the fundraiser to $8000 which is the minimum needed to purchase new shoulder pads. Coach Ashley Johnson started the fundraiser so his team will be safe during future practice and football games. Many of the shoulder pads the school currently possess are 15 years old and no longer provide the necessary protection that is needed in the game. In a high impact sport such as football, proper and adequate safety equipment is necessary to reduce injury.
David Greene and Will Phillips presented the $2000.00 check to Coach Ashley Johnson on the morning of August 6, 2013 just before the team began morning practice at 10:20am on the football field at Vigor High School in Prichard, Alabama. Coach Ashley Johnson told his team they should remember this gift when later in life they see a need they should pay it forward.
David Greene told the students that when he saw the need he knew he had to do whatever he and Will Phillips could do to help meet that need. “Will Phillips and myself and the entire team of Greene and Phillips want to support you as a team. We are a team and we want to help you as a team. We love you guys. We support you guys. We know you will win, and we want to be apart of that.”
Coach Ashley Johnson, David Greene, Will Phillips and special guest Prichard Chief of Staff, Eddie Brown, posed with team members in front of the media for pictures and video.
Greene & Phillips is a strong ally of injured victims’ rights. As one of the region’s largest personal injury law firms, they firmly believe proper safety equipment is necessary in many aspects of life including driving, sports, and on the job.
Greene & Phillips has a long partnership with the community through support of various church events, Joey Jones Football Camp, giveaways of hands-free cellphone adapters, and sponsoring Mobile Gospel Fest and other events.
