The law firm of Bordas & Bordas has donated a total of $37,000 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Pittsburgh in conjunction with their Pittsburgh Steelers partnership for the 2019-2020 season. A check presentation was held prior to the Steelers’ regular season home game against the Buffalo Bills on Dec. 15, 2019.
The firm, which places a heavy importance on philanthropy, donated $500 to the Ronald McDonald House for every sack made by the Steelers defense this year, including the pre-season. The Steelers ended the season with a total of 74 sacks.
“At Bordas & Bordas, we feel it is important to give back to the organizations in our community. We joined the Sacks for Kids program five years ago and we have been very pleased to provide philanthropic support to the Ronald McDonald House through the partnership with the Pittsburgh Steelers,” said Managing Partner Jamie Bordas.
The Ronald McDonald House is a charity designed to help families with children being treated in a medical center. The organization has local chapters in more than 64 countries and regions. It often provides housing and meals at little or no cost so families can focus on care and togetherness rather than worry about the rising costs of hotels and travel.
“Although the Steelers’ season didn’t result in a playoff run, the defense was outstanding all year and once again was at the top of the league in sacks. That helped make this partnership a real winner,” said Bordas.
Bordas & Bordas is a plaintiff’s litigation law firm of 19 attorneys based in Wheeling, W.Va., with offices in Pittsburgh, St. Clairsville, Ohio and Moundsville, W.Va. The firm’s attorneys practice throughout the region in diverse areas of law and are licensed in West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Texas.
