Shipman & Goodwin Brightens Holiday Season for Boys at Domus

Attorneys and staff sponsor party and provide gifts for teenagers in residential program

January 4, 2005

Shipman & Goodwin continued its holiday tradition of sponsoring a holiday celebration for boys from Domus, a residential program for youth. The fifth annual celebration, which was held in December, included a pizza party, stockings stuffed with gifts, an afternoon of creating crafts and cards and a gift certificate for each boy.

"Shipman & Goodwin is very proud of its support of the Domus Foundation," said Andrew M. Zeitlin, a partner at Shipman & Goodwin and member of the Board of Directors of the United Way of Stamford, which provides funding to the Domus Foundation. "We enjoy spending time with the boys and we're delighted to have the opportunity to reach out to the community."

For the celebration, attorneys and staff gathered with 22 teenage boys to share pizza, distribute stockings and gift certificates and participate in creating personal holiday cards. Shipman & Goodwin also made a donation to the Domus Foundation.

Sylvia Elliott of Shipman & Goodwin, who coordinates the annual event, said she was particularly touched to learn that in years past, when some of the boys have left Domus, they take with them the stockings and gifts they received at the Shipman & Goodwin holiday party.
