Northborough – On Feb. 14, the law firm of Mirick O”Connell held a $5 Jeans Day fundraiser in support of the Northborough Free Library's pajamas drive. Employees could wear jeans to work that day if they made a donation. The library was participating in a statewide collection of new pajamas for children during the month of February. All donations were sent to the Cradles to Crayons organization.

Mirick O’Connell's involvement was part of the Mirick O’Connell Gives Back Program.

“We established the [program] a few years ago to highlight and promote firm-wide community involvement,” said Diane M. Power, a Northborough resident and executive director of the firm. “The purpose of the program is to support smaller, community-based fundraising initiatives so that we can really make an impact in bettering the lives of those in need throughout our Worcester, Westborough and surrounding MetroWest communities.”
