The Washington Lawyer highlights various charity efforts at law firms, including Miller & Chevalier's participation in the Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program. From the article:

For the past 20 years, Miller & Chevalier Chartered has worked with the Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program, providing gifts to children who are under 12 and live in the District. Without their participation and the participation of others, families in need chosen by the Salvation Army would not be able to afford Christmas.

Led by member Patricia Sweeney and secretary Monique de Grace, the office originally planned to sponsor 100 children. Within a few weeks, stacks of toys and clothing filled the firm's atrium, while additional money was donated to buy more gifts. People even rolled in bicycles or helped assemble them in the area the firm called the "bicycle annex." The employees were so generous that the firm was able to sponsor an additional 20 children with all the gifts that accrued in the office.

"Over the years, we have been told by many participating members of the Miller & Chevalier ‘family' that this program has become a high point of their holiday season. It certainly is for me," Sweeney said. "It really warms the heart to see the gifts we provide. The program truly puts you in touch with the spirit of the season."
