Phillip E. Goldstein, managing partner of Goldstein Lieberman & Company LLC, Benjamin Mills, partner, and Lisa Marshall, controller, recently visited Catholic Charities Community Services of Orange and Sullivan’s Goshen offices to make a generous donation as part of the firm’s Cares Program. The trio presented a check for $1,000 to Dr. Dean Scher, Executive Director of Catholic Charities of Orange and Sullivan. The funds will be used to support the non-profit agency’s anti-poverty programs which include emergency food and shelter assistance, for residents in need in Orange and Sullivan Counties.
“From addiction services to emergency food and shelter assistance, Catholic Charities lends a helping hand to some of the neediest and most vulnerable in our community,” remarked Mr. Goldstein. “We are delighted to be able to support their efforts with a donation through the Goldstein Lieberman Cares initiative. Working together with human service agencies like Catholic Charities we’re able to help improve the quality of life for our friends and neighbors in need,” added Goldstein.
The Goldstein Lieberman Cares program was created to support various non-profits in New York and New Jersey by providing monetary contributions to organizations throughout each year. The program was recognized in 2011 with the Rockland Business Association’s Pinnacle Award for Corporate Service. Since its inception in 2009, the firm has awarded more than $500,000 to a broad variety of causes throughout New York and New Jersey.
“We are exceptionally grateful to Phil, Ben, and Lisa, and all the good folks at Goldstein Lieberman & Company for including Catholic Charities in its Cares giving initiative,” said Dr. Scher. “This donation will help us provide the marginalized and vulnerable in our community with basic necessities of life – like food on their table and a roof over their head. Last year, Catholic Charities was able to help nearly 15,000 individuals and families through our anti-poverty programs. We are extremely grateful to Goldstein Lieberman and others like them whose donations make it possible for us to provide these services.”
