Community Connection

We are grateful for the strong relationships we’ve built with our clients as well as the communities in which we serve them. Our lawyers proudly work hard on behalf of their clients — and just as hard in support of important causes.


Bunkers in Baghdad

Bunkers in Baghdad, Inc. is a non-profit charity founded and managed by Goldberg Segalla partner Joseph M. Hanna. This unique organization helps our troops by collecting and sending new and used golf balls, clubs, and equipment to U.S. troops in more than 60 countries around the world. Bunkers also supplies golf equipment to wounded warriors programs around the country to aid in the rehabilitation of our injured veterans. The charity has even established a very rewarding “Bunkers Buddies” program for schoolchildren across the country, with children packing and shipping boxes filled with balls, cards and letters they write to the soldiers. Since its inception in 2008, Bunkers has collected and shipped out more than 8 million golf balls and more than 600,000 golf clubs, with more arriving daily.

Little Match Girl Foundation

The Little Match Girl Foundation Ltd. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the principle that every child deserves the opportunity to experience the joy, wonder, and optimism of youth that many of us take for granted. Inspired by the classic Hans Christian Andersen short story of the same name, the Little Match Girl Foundation focuses on helping those children most in need by collecting and providing them with school supplies, essential seasonal items, holiday gifts, and other donations in collaboration with their schools and other community organizations.

Founded in May 2014 by Goldberg Segalla partner Brian R. Biggie, the organization’s roots trace back to an annual holiday gift-giving program he began in Buffalo in 2005. It has grown to encompass efforts in multiple cities, with the goal of positively impacting the lives of as many children as possible in an ever-expanding network of community partnerships. The Little Match Girl Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.
