We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
Meltzer Lippe encourages its attorneys to give back to their community. Many have done just that. Here are some of the ways Meltzer Lippe attorneys have given back to their community.
Long Island Bike Challenge
Meltzer Lippe attorneys and staff raised over $5,000 benefiting cancer research at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research of the Northwell Health System by participating in the 2017 Long Island Bike Challenge (“LIBC”) www.lichallenge.org held on August 6. The Long Island Bike Challenge is an annual event. Attorneys David Heymann, Stephen Breitstone and Stephanie Suarez biked in the event. Attorney Mel Grimaldi, Mark Guyer, Kalvin Guyer, Eddie Carrera, Robin Fitzgerald (and her daughter Jamie) volunteered. Attorneys Jonathan Farrell and Mike Masri have helped to promote the LIBC since its inception in 2012.
Meltzer Lippe has been a longtime supporter of the Heckscher Museum, the Nassau County Museum of Fine Art and the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center. In fact the firm helped to establish the former home of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner as a museum and study center with the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
Through the Nassau County Bar Association the firm remains actively involved in the WE CARE Fund, which is the nationally-recognized charitable arm of the Nassau Bar and was formed to distribute funding, via charitable grants, to improve the quality of life for children, the elderly and others in need.
Meltzer Lippe supports, and several of its attorneys are members of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee which is among the most well known pro-Israel advocacy groups.
Meltzer Lippe attorneys give readily to several educational organizations whose primary mission is to advance high levels of scholarship and provide a broad range of educational and social programs.
The Stony Brook Children’s Hospital and Huntington Hospital are among the institutions to which Meltzer Lippe attorneys have chosen to dedicate their time, effort and resources. The Stony Brook Children’s Hospital is an academic and service institution with more than 140 pediatric specialists available. Huntington Hospital, a member of the North Shore LIJ system, is well known for its cardiovascular services.
The firm also annually engages in holiday giving through the Family and Children’s Association of Nassau. Each holiday season the firm holds a “Calling All Elves Day” where we set aside some time to wrap presents and gift baskets that have been brought in by employees of the firm for donation. And, around Thanksgiving, we pit teams against one another in a food drive contest to benefit the Island Harvest Harry Chapin Food Bank.
Youth & At-Risk Residents
Meltzer Lippe supports the Tri-Community and Youth Agency which is a private not-for-profit community based agency. The firm seeks to support the growth and development of youth and their families. For more than 30 years, the Tri-CYA has provided a broad range of educational, recreational, social, cultural, athletic, counseling and advocacy programs.
