This upcoming year will be the 100th year anniversary for my law firm, Raff and Raff LLP. We’ve been in Paterson for 100 years and we wouldn’t have it any other way! Paterson has been great to us, and I’m thrilled to give back to the community. A few years ago I created a non-profit, Gifts of Love, a 501c3 charitable organization. The nonprofit’s mission is to donate as many gifts as possible to low income families who cannot afford to buy holiday gifts for their kids. Our goal is to make sure all children enjoy the holidays and don’t feel left out or unloved. I’m lucky to have the backing of my law firm that covers a huge portion of the costs. When I say we’re a non-profit, we’re really NON-PROFIT. No one takes a salary, we absorb all costs, and everyone contributes their own personal time and money to fund the project. If anyone has new toys they’d like to donate, I’m happy to take them anytime of year. This year we gave away about 300 gifts, and we’d like to keep growing. I’m happy to be pictured here with Joey from Eva’s Shelter. Any donation is appreciated, as every gift counts.
