On Saturday, April 26, 2014, volunteers from Connell Foley under the direction and leadership of attorneys Michael Creegan and Stephen Turano spent the day participating in Rebuilding Together Jersey City helping to refurbish the Camp Liberty facility, which is a summer camp for inner city children ranging in age from 8 to 15 years.
For the past thirteen years, Connell Foley has participated in and supported Rebuilding Together Jersey City. Initially, Connell Foley was assigned to work on single family homes but over the years as its experience and number of volunteers increased, it completed projects at several institutional facilities, including the Boys and Girls Club, Camp Liberty, St Lucy's Homeless shelter and Women Rising.
Rebuilding Together Jersey City (formerly known as Christmas in April Jersey City) is a non-profit organization that, in partnership with the community, rehabilitates the houses of low-income homeowners, particularly people who are physically challenged and elderly, and facilities of non-profit organizations in need so that they may live in warmth, safety, and independence. Since the Jersey City chapter began in 1991, Rebuilding Together Jersey City has made more than $2.9 million dollars worth of improvements to more than 313 homes and community facilities.
Connell Foley has offices in New Jersey in Spring Lake, Cherry Hill, Roseland and Jersey City and in New York City and Philadelphia. For more information about the Firm, please visit www.connellfoley.com.
