COHEN AND LOMBARDO employees engaged in two holiday projects this season:

· We continued our support of the Haven House Toyland Project, which allowed us to give gifts and gather supplies for residents at Haven House, which is a shelter run by Child and Family Services. The project provided victims of domestic abuse who are residents of Haven House, with a place to "shop" for appropriate toys and gifts, and provided the shelter with much needed supplies.

· In the second project, we worked with the Disabled American Veterans group to send care packages to our soldiers stationed overseas.
