Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner Supports Memorial Elementary in Arcadia

Fourth-grade teachers at Memorial Elementary School in Arcadia

Firm provides supplies to students of employee-turned-teacher.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (Oct. 9, 2018) – Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured routinely gives to local schools, but the firm’s latest donation was extra special. Longtime firm employee Katie McDonald, now a fourth-grade teacher at Memorial Elementary School in Arcadia, recently received four giant crates of supplies for students in her classroom as well as all the other fourth-grade rooms in the school.

“I’m so thankful, and it was just so heartwarming to see how much they care,” McDonald. “It’s made my first full year as a teacher a lot less stressful.” The notebooks, folders, markers, crayons, colored paper and more are enough to last a couple of years, she said. The firm also sent ancillary items like tissues, paper towels and sandwich bags.

“People don’t think about those little things, but they’re needed just as much,” McDonald said. “The Scheiners really want to make sure children have all the tools they need to learn.”

McDonald has worked for the firm for seven years, starting in the file room and ultimately becoming a go-to person for help in every department. She still works occasional outreach events for the firm even though her primary job is now teaching.

“Katie is an exceptional young woman who we are proud to call an alumnus of the Scheiner team,” trial attorney P.J. Scheiner said. “We’re ecstatic to have the opportunity to support her and her Memorial classroom. We know that Katie is helping to shape a great future for her students and our community.”

The firm is also committed to service learning through its annual Make a Difference Awards, which recognize Southwest Florida middle and high school students who have performed outstanding volunteer and community service. The awards are typically handed out in the spring.
