We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
Supporting Our Employees
Meltzer Lippe encourages, recognizes and supports the efforts of its employees to contribute to the community. In this regard, the Meltzer Lippe Foundation made a contribution to the charity of each employee’s choosing. By benefiting our employees’ charities, we are supporting our employees’ values and their lives outside the office. Here are some other ways Meltzer Lippe has given back to its community.
Long Island Bike Challenge: Bikes Battle Cancer
Meltzer Lippe by its sponsorship, its rider attorneys Stephen Breitstone, David Heymann and David Koffler and other Meltzer Lippe attorneys and staff raised over $8,500.00 to benefit cutting-edge cancer research at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research of the Northwell Health System by participating in the 2019 Long Island Bike Challenge (“LIBC”) www.lichallenge.org held on August 4, 2019. In addition to the riders, attorneys and staff members volunteer by manning the much needed water stops. Both Mike Masri and Mark Guyer of our Firm serve on LIBC’s Board and commit their time and energy to fulfilling its mandate.
Meltzer Lippe has been a proud sponsor of LIBC since its inception in 2012. For photos, please check out Life at Meltzer Lippe https://www.meltzerlippe.com/the-firm/standards/life-at-meltzer-lippe/
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.
L.I. Cares – School Supplies
Meltzer Lippe, its partners, attorneys and staff reached out to LI Cares for the opportunity to donate school supplies for less fortunate children at the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
Our Meltzer Lippe community quietly and purposefully filled several large boxes to the brim with back packs, pencils folders and everything else that Long Island kids need to make their day at school as productive as possible. We are pleased to lighten the load for the school children that we were able to help.
