Mani Ellis & Layne announces community-based fund to help service workers in need
CHARLESTON, WV (March 31, 2020) – Charleston law firm Mani Ellis & Lanye, PLLC is proud to announce it is sponsoring an initiative to help local service workers whose finances have been impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Better Together WV has been organized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit involving multiple businesses and retailers to assist unemployed service workers and/or service workers suffering from reduced income due to the ever-changing circumstances the COVID-19 outbreak has created.
“Our law firm is undertaking a key sponsorship of this initiative, which will help provide necessary support to the dedicated and selfless service workers whose income has been negatively affected by the Coronavirus pandemic,” said Attorney Bernie Layne III, a partner at the law firm. “When times are tough, the residents of Charleston have shown time and time again that they will work together for their neighbors and help members of the community by providing the necessary support. We’re all in this together.”
The COVID-19 Better Together CWV Fund will aid service workers facing unforeseen hardships by ensuring basic needs are being met (food, housing, approved transportation). It will also provide a “family support” subsidy for displaced service workers with children and elder care responsibilities.
Charleston Council Member At-Large Jennifer Pharr and Antony Paranzino, who serves as Director of Tailoring & Design at the Charleston business Tony The Tailor, are organizers of this effort.
