The employees of G.R. Reid are proud to have supported the 2016 Holiday Gift Card Drive sponsored by The Safe Center Long Island. The firm is particularly proud to have supported Aaron Cohen, son of partner John Cohen, in his effort to raise funds for the center through a school project at RC Murphy Jr. High in Stony Brook, Long Island. Aaron's efforts, with G.R.Reid's support raised over $1,000.
The donated gift cards, in $25 denominations, were collected and distributed to client families which enabled them to purchase holiday gifts for their children. The Safe Center LI is a creation of two former non-profit agencies that separately served the victims of domestic abuse and child abuse. Located in a historic Grumman building in Bethpage, it was created in 2014 through the merger of the Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CADV)and the Coalition Against Child Abuse & Neglect (CCAN). Each had been providing services for victims of abuse for over 30 years. Their mission is to protect, assist and empower victims of family violence and sexual assault while challenging and changing social systems that tolerate and perpetuate abuse.
