In recognition of its community engagement, Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP, Suffolk County’s premier law firm, was selected to receive a 2016 Corporate Citizenship Award from the Long Island Business News in the category of Corporate Social Responsibility. The awards program recognizes companies and individuals who believe that practicing good corporate citizenship contributes to the economic and social well-being of employees, businesses, and the Long Island community. The awards were presented at a celebratory breakfast on June 14 at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury.
Campolo Middleton was recognized for having community dedication “woven into its DNA,” with attorneys serving in leadership roles for numerous nonprofits and providing pro bono legal services and financial support to philanthropic organizations. The firm supports numerous leading nonprofits in the community including the American Red Cross on Long Island, Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPS), Girl Scouts of Suffolk County, UCP Suffolk, the Ronald McDonald House, and Pet Peeves, among others.
In his keynote address at the awards ceremony, John D. Kemp, President and CEO of the Viscardi Center, applauded the winners for believing that when they see challenges in the community, “it’s not someone else’s problem – it’s our problem.” He explained that the days of “having” to perform community service for school credit or as punishment are gone; today’s employees have grown up with a culture that calls for service, and they look to employers to help provide those opportunities.
The firm congratulates all the winners!
