Donations Help Local Families in Need
In giving back to the community this holiday season, Twomey, Latham, Shea, Kelley, Dubin & Quartararo, LLP donated more than 30 meals to Island Harvest Food Bank. The donated food was picked up at East Wind Long Island in Wading River, where the Firm held its annual holiday party on December 17. By working together with East Wind and Island Harvest, Twomey Latham has helped feed local families in need, which continues a firm tradition of supporting food pantries.
Founded in 1992 by Linda Breitstone, Island Harvest has become Long Island’s largest hunger relief organization. The volunteers and staff deliver millions of pounds of quality surplus food — that might have otherwise gone to waste — to a network of 570 Long Island-based food pantries, soup kitchens and nonprofit organizations that offer feeding services for those in need. Since its inception, Island Harvest has delivered 130 million pounds of food, supplementing 108 million meals.
The donations signify Twomey Latham’s active involvement in the communities it serves, including pro bono services, charitable giving and volunteer work.
“The culture of caring and compassion extends to all areas of the Firm,” said David M. Dubin, Senior Partner, Twomey, Latham, Shea, Kelley, Dubin & Quartararo, LLP. “We give back to the local community because we are the local community. It’s where we live and work. It’s where we raise our families. We are deeply involved because we understand the importance of being an active part of the Long Island community, especially during the holiday season. It’s at the core of the Firm’s philosophy and has been since our inception.”
