New Haven, CT (July 22, 2014)…Murtha Cullina LLP’s employees generously supported the United Way of Greater New Haven’s "Suited to Succeed" initiative.
The Firm recently joined 19 other companies to donate new or gently used business attire to job-seekers throughout the community. In less than two months, more than 1,500 articles of clothing were collected for STRIVE and New Haven Works. These two organizations provide interview training and resume writing classes to people looking for work, and now, they can also offer job candidates professional apparel for interviews.
"We are proud to support the United Way of Greater New Haven’s efforts to improve our community," said Alfred E. Smith, Jr., a former Chair of the UWGNH Board. "We are also proud of our employees’ overwhelming response. They helped make "Suited to Succeed" a very successful initiative."
Murtha Cullina’s donation efforts were led by Legal Secretary, Raphaline Voccia. Thanks to her enthusiasm and hard work, Murtha employees donated two carloads of clothing to the United Way of Greater New Haven.
Whether through business contributions, event sponsorship or employee participation, Murtha Cullina and its employees are dedicated to supporting initiatives, like "Suited to Succeed," that focus on improving their communities.
