Giving Back is What We Do

The Firm prides itself on the work we do for our community, via fundraisers, donations of money and time, and simply helping out wherever there is a need. Some of our most recent work has been with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Second Chance, Genesis Recovery, and San Diego’s Friendship Soccer League

THE LEUKEMIA & LYMPHOMA SOCIETY

2020 Man & Woman of the Year Campaign: David was nominated for, and graciously accepted, the opportunity to be a candidate for the 2020 Man of the Year campaign for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). From April 9-June 20, 2020, David and his team embarked on a 10-week fundraising campaign and was one of the ten candidates who raised a total of over $620,000 to support the mission of the LLS.

If you would like to make a tax deductible donation, you can donate online at https://pages.lls.org/mwoy/sd/sd20/dshapiro or by sending a check, made payable to LLS, with “David P. Shapiro” in the memo. Your support can help bring hope to those fighting cancer and to honor those we have lost.

Second Chance

SECOND CHANCE

One of the Firm’s longest community relationships has been with Second Chance, a San Diego based program providing justice-involved men, women, and youth with the life-saving resources needed to break the cycle of addiction, poverty, and incarceration.  Most recently, from 2019-2020, David spoke at the graduation of four Job Readiness Training Classes, also serving as the Class Champion for Class 232, 237, and 240, where he volunteered 10-15 hours a week for each 4–5-week class.  We have committed to letting Second Chance borrow David, on a part-time basis, for a few weeks every few months to continue to make a change in the lives of those justice-involved individuals eager to get back into the work force and back on the path of self-sufficiency.

Genesis Recovery

GENESIS RECOVERY

Since its inception, the Firm has been a friend to Genesis Recovery, a faith-based, 12-Step, drug and alcohol rehab center and treatment program devoted to restoring the lives of men affected with the disease of addiction. David serves on the Board of Directors at Genesis and the firm has been an active fundraiser over the years for a program so many of the Firm’s clients have credited for turning their lives around.  We are especially look forward to our annual sponsorship of their “5k We Walk for Hope,” held to benefit a scholarship fund for entry into the program for those who are ready mentally but not quite financially.

Friendship Soccer League

FRIENDSHIP SOCCER LEAGUE

The Firm proudly sponsored the uniforms for San Diego’s Friendship Soccer League in 2019. Comprised of mostly Ethiopian and Eritrean-Americans, the Firm was embraced by the community and was treated to all the great delicacies and traditions of their proud culture. David has spoken at several events the soccer teams have held, and even kicked the ball around a little bit (in his Ferragamos), reminiscing about his glory days of youth soccer on Staten Island, NY.
