The law firm Pepper Hamilton LLP is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. In honor of the occasion, attorneys and staff from each of the firm’s offices are helping their local communities by volunteering during days of service. On June 16, members of the Detroit office were joined by their friends and family to harvest early crops from the Farmington Hills DTE Energy Farm for dinner at a local charity kitchen.

DTE Energy Farm is dedicated to providing fresh, local fruits and vegetables to hungry people in its community. Through the combined efforts of Gleaners Community Food Bank, DTE Energy and dedicated volunteers, the DTE Energy Farm works to fill the hunger gap. The farm is divided into gardens throughout southeast Michigan, and the Farmington Hills garden is located on 10 Mile Road, west of Grand River. Anyone interested in volunteering at the farm should contact Kate Long at 734-545-2758 or

Pepper’s Detroit office has a second day planned with DTE Energy Farm at their Westland location later this month and two additional days of service in July with Forgotten Harvest in Oak Park.

Pepper Hamilton LLP, founded in 1890, is a multipractice law firm with more than 500 lawyers nationally. The firm provides corporate, litigation and regulatory legal services to leading businesses, government entities, nonprofit organizations and individuals throughout the nation and the world.
