At Proskauer, we have a strong connection to the communities in which we live and work, and a deep commitment to their success. We are especially proud of our relationship with Stella and Charles Guttman Community College, located only a few blocks from our New York office.
When the college established its private 501(c)(3) foundation, our Firm was one of the first to make a donation. The donation provides funding for the college to buy food gift cards at Subway restaurants, available throughout the city, so that students who are hungry can purchase something to eat. The College is located in the Bryant Park area, and local restaurants are far too expensive. Food insecurity is a major problem for Guttman students. Guttman has a food pantry, which is run by its Single Stop office, and also partners with the Food Bank for New York City.
Proskauer’s relationship goes beyond donations. We have led career panel discussions and recently organized a two-day pop-up shop from clothing that we donated. More than 80 students dropped by to shop.
