   |   Press Release

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – May 13, 2009 – The Indianapolis office of Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C. (Ogletree Deakins) is among a select group in the six-county Central Indiana area that earned the coveted Company That Cares distinction for results during the 2008 United Way of Central Indiana (UWCI) annual workplace campaign, announced UWCI President and CEO Ellen K. Annala.

The recognition is awarded to organizations that reach their fundraising or participation goal and achieve benchmarks in volunteer community participation, leadership giving, and more. Companies That Care also excel in educating employees about community needs and the best ways to meet them, and exemplify the spirit of volunteerism by allowing employees to give time to United Way programs and/or its agencies.

“Ogletree Deakins is an organization that LIVES UNITED whatever the economic climate. We celebrate their achievements in giving, advocating, and volunteering to improve our community through United Way. Together, we’re addressing today’s needs while reducing tomorrow’s,” said Annala.

Upon receiving word of the United Way award, Chuck Baldwin, managing shareholder of Ogletree Deakins’ Indianapolis office, said, “We at Ogletree Deakins are extremely honored to receive the Company That Cares designation from United Way of Central Indiana. We strive to be good corporate citizens year-round, and receiving this award is very affirming of our endeavors.”    

Honorees each receive a showcase sculpture and the privilege of using the Company That Cares logo in communications materials as a way to show the public they are doing business with an organization that gives back to the community through its strong and consistent support of UWCI.
