BlumShapiro volunteers gathered recently to help prepare
packages of Thanksgiving food items for more than 2,000
seniors and families served by Christian Community
Action (CCA) in New Haven. The month-long program,
the BlumShapiro Thanksgiving Food Basket Campaign
for Christian Community Action, included food donations,
monetary contributions, and the November bagging event.
BlumShapiro recently presented a check for more than
$4,000toIntervalHouseasaresultofthefirm'semployee
giving through its Jeans for Charity Program. BlumShapiro
holds Jeans for Charity Days on Fridays. Over the course
of the year, the program supports a variety of organizations
doing good work in the community. Interval House is
dedicated to providing services to prevent and break the
cycle of family and intimate partner abuse.
Reynolds & Rowella donated $6,000 in
charitable giving in recognition of its 30th
anniversary celebration. Two charities
received $3,000 each: the Freedom Alliance
and The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.
The Freedom Alliance supports military
service members and their families. The
donation from Reynolds & Rowella will
go toward the purchase of a track chair, a
specialty wheel chair custom built to the
needs of an individual service member.
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp serves
seriously ill children and their families
free of charge. In a camp-like setting,
children can build ties to a strong com-
munity and experience the camaraderie
enjoyed by summer campers despite their
medical conditions.
