Isaacson, Rosenbaum, Woods & Levy
This firm’s Community Service Committee is busy all year with projects. Here are a few:
Isaacson held an employee pet photo contest and lunch for the Good Samaritan Pet Center, a no-kill shelter. The effort raised $410 for the organization.
The firm’s summer law clerks got into the act by painting and doing some yard work for Family Homestead House, an organization that provides housing for homeless families.
Isaacson employees baked up some good cookin’ to benefit NY police and fire widows. An auction accompanied the sale, and the event raised more than $6,000.
For Halloween, the firm provided a safe trick-or-treating environment for the Educational Outreach Program’s homeless children.
