This year, Wolf Greenfield raised over $80,000 to support the work of
GBLS on behalf of domestic violence survivors. The drive benefits the
GBLS Family Law Unit, which offers free legal services to help families
overcome difficult circumstances, to move on with their lives and to
become self-sufficient. Led by Wolf Greenfield attorneys Stuart Duncan
Smith, Sardiaa Leney, Chelsea Loughran, Ethan Marks and Eric Rutt, every
Boston-based associate, counsel and technology specialist at the firm
contributed, with the firm's shareholder group providing matching funds.
Wolf Greenfield raised more than it ever has in the past, and for the
sixth year in a row, more than any other participating law firm. In
total, the drive raised over $500,000 for GBLS.

In addition, nearly 100 firm employees participated in a variety of
campaigns and events designed to enrich the communities in which they
live and practice. Throughout the month, volunteers from the Boston
office painted and landscaped at a Habitat
for Humanity
build site in Dorchester, Massachusetts, and sorted
donation items at Cradles
to Crayons
, an organization that provides local children with the
essentials they need to thrive at school, at home and at play.

Volunteers from the New York office worked with Project
Sunshine
on an event called Sending Sunshine and created 198
personalized care packages and craft kits for pediatric patients. Wolf
Greenfield employees also raised $2,500 for the American Heart
Association through the Lawyers Have Heart 5K, an annual fundraising
event held in Boston.

"Our firm's tradition of charitable giving and community engagement
provides our employees with a great opportunity to give back," said Mike
Rader, chair of the firm's Charitable Committee. "These activities allow
us to support both the communities we live in and our professional
community here at the firm."
