For the third consecutive year, employees of BlumShapiro
decided to forgo their annual company celebration and
instead donate funds to nonprofit organizations throughout
Connecticut. These donations included a $2,500 contribu-
tion to the Thomas Merton Center, a day shelter in
Bridgeport that offers food and support to hundreds of peo-
ple every day, and a $2,500 donation to the Community
Renewal Team's East Hartford Community Shelter, a 40-
bed shelter that provides a safe haven for families with chil-
dren and single men.
