For the second year, Szaferman Lakind has opted to forgo gifts to clients, choosing instead to provide support to the Rescue Mission of Trenton. The firm donated $5,000 to be used for homeless families and others in need this holiday season.
Rescue Mission of Trenton provides shelter, food, clothing, and basic items for those facing homelessness, addiction and other hardships. The agency operates an emergency shelter, day center as well as providing other assistance programs including addiction counseling, mental health services, housing and job training and placement services. The COVID-19 pandemic created new challenges for the organization, including caring for coronavirus patients who otherwise have nowhere else to turn and keeping other individuals safe.
Since the pandemic began in March of 2020, the firm has donated $25,000 to various nonprofits in the Mercer County area to assist those in need. The firm’s attorneys and staff have also sponsored 72 children through the HomeFront Holiday Wishes Drive, to fulfill the holiday wishes of children affected by homelessness this year.
“With many hardships created by the pandemic, we are gratified to be able to provide assistance to organizations like the Rescue Mission of Trenton and HomeFront,” remarked Co-Managing Partner Barry Szaferman. ‘It brings us joy to be able to help our community during this time of year, and we wish our clients and the community a very happy holiday season.”
