Bill Berenson has always strongly believed in community service and his law firm again made a donation to the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) today.
Why we support the NTFB
This incredible non-profit organization performs so many critically needed jobs including
- collecting and distributing food to those in need,
- providing disaster relief,
- teaching nutrition education,
- ensuring that seniors have access to nutritious foods, and
- helping people apply for SNAP and other government programs
Most of the Food Bank’s items are donated by grocery stores and other partners in the food industry. Companies, individuals and farmers help out tremendously. They have a small army of volunteers who collect, sort, box and carry the food to distribution points across 13 counties in North Texas.
The NTFB distributes perishable items like dairy and produce and also canned fruits and vegetables, rice, and peanut butter. An incredible 26 million pounds of fruits and vegetables were distributed last year. Unsold food is donated so it is not wasted.
The NTFB is top-rated by the Charity Navigator since it gives out almost all (95%) of the money and items collected and keeps its administrative costs to a minimum.
And it was started in 1982 – the same year Mr. Berenson opened his personal injury law firm in Fort Worth. He has maintained his primary office there in the 11-story Westbend One Tower on University Drive overlooking the Trinity River, just down the street from NTFB’s headquarters and warehouse.
Do You Need Help From the Food Bank?
Please call 817-534-0814 and you can learn how and where you can get food. Or visit its web page for more information including a map of where the food is available. The NTFB works with several hundred partners to distribute food.
Why we support food banks
Our law firm is keenly aware of the economic hardships that so many people are unfortunately now experiencing. And we know that many of our area’s residents were already food-insecure well before the coronavirus suddenly disrupted our worlds and millions lost their jobs or had their hours reduced.
It is heart-breaking that an estimated 40 million Americans, including 12 million children, suffer from food insecurity. They often don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
Berenson Injury Law gives back to North Texas
Mr. Berenson has enjoyed practicing personal injury law in Fort Worth for the past 40 years and is always trying to give back to the community he loves.
Last year, he donated $1,000.00 to the North Texas Food Bank and met its Senior Director of Development (pictured above) who led him on a tour of their facilities.
Several weeks ago, Mr. Berenson again donated 1,000 meals to Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County and donated $1,000.00 in December. He and his wife have also made deliveries for them.
He plans to continue to support food banks and other charities, as he has done throughout his 40 year career practicing personal injury law.
Here are some of Mr. Berenson’s other recent projects.
We are here for you during this crisis
Berenson Injury Law was founded by award-winning attorney Bill Berenson in 1982. With our firm’s specialty in vehicle collisions, we are able to help our injured clients across the state of Texas.
We are working diligently to get our clients their compensation as quickly as possible during the pandemic. We help them in more ways than just providing personal injury support, especially during this crisis.
For example, we are paying to have documents and settlement checks hand delivered to our clients via Federal Express and courier services to keep them socially distanced and not make them drive to our office (the building is locked).
Please give today
One of Mr. Berenson’s favorite causes is supporting children and education. Sadly, one out of four children live in families that do not know where their next meal is coming from.
After 15 years of adopting an elementary school in Fort Worth, Mr. Berenson knows that the children were served three nutritious meals a day and are now having trouble getting the food they relied upon.

And since it is #GivingTuesdayNow, a special day to raise money for charities to help people affected by COVID-19, the donation will be doubled.
