In lieu of client gifts, Team GS contributes to a broad range of charitable organizations and nonprofits. Over the past few years, we made donations in our clients’ honor to many community initiatives.
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 10 million golf balls and more than 600,000 golf clubs, with more arriving daily.
Team Kindness, our community outreach initiative, coordinates volunteer and fundraising efforts among attorneys and staff firm-wide. Each quarter, Team GS members choose a charity to support through these team-driven efforts. Over the course of four years, Team Kindness has been instrumental in spurring Team GS to not only help out the communities we live and work in, but also to help out one another. Volunteers from offices across the GS footprint have benefited more than 70 non-profits and charitable organizations.
