first Community Service Award
PaTLA President Timothy A. Shollenberger (left) presents PaTLA's first Community Service Award to trial lawyer Gerald A. McHugh Jr. of Philadelphia. With McHugh is his son Michael. The award honored McHugh's work in establishing a North Philadelphia thrift store that sells only safe children's toys and clothes to families who could not otherwise afford them. The store is unique because it employs residents of Hospitality House, a non-profit residential program for male ex-convicts. The award was presented on October 20 at PaTLA's Board of Governors meeting on Center City.
