The Michigan personal injury law firm of
Goodman Acker P.C. is honored to announce that they recently received the ‘American
Patriot’ award from the Michigan Veterans Foundation (MVF).
Executive Director of the MVF, Tyrone Chatman, presented the award to the
senior partners of Goodman Acker,
Barry Goodman and
Gerald Acker, and thanked all Goodman Acker lawyers and staff for their help and efforts
in trying to eliminate homelessness among our Detroit Veterans.
On Veterans Day, the Southfield
personal injury law firm held a ‘Caring For Our Homeless Veterans Benefit’ at Detroit
Tough Gym in Corktown. The benefit was a collection drive/walk-run where
community members could donate gently used or new items and walk/run to
deliver those items to Veterans in need.
The event proved to be a huge success collecting over eight truckloads
of clothing, coats, blankets, shoes, business suits, disposable goods
and more for Detroit’s homeless Veterans. In addition, the attorneys
raised over $2,000.00 in monetary funds that went to the MVF.
This award truly is an honor to receive and Goodman Acker P.C. is so pleased
to help our heroic Veterans. The American Patriot Award is given to those
exceptional Americans who have demonstrated a profound and abiding love
of country who whose inspirational leadership and selfless dedication
symbolize the nation’s ideals, values and democratic principles.
“We are deeply humbled and honored by the American Patriot award
presented by the Michigan Veterans Foundation. Jerry and I believe the
only true patriots are those who currently or have served our country
protecting us around the clock while we go about our daily lives. Whatever
we can do to transition their life back home to one befitting to returning
heroes is what we strive for each and every day,” says Barry Goodman.
