Every December, the staff at Suisman Shapiro come together to adopt a family in need through The Neighborhood Alliance of New London. Employees receive the wish list for each member of the adopted family and purchase items from the list or donate money. All items on the family's wish list have been fulfilled. Attorney Jay Berryman, along with Paralegal Joanna Lazarus, delivered the gifts to The Neighborhood Alliance. For the past 27 years, groups of friends, neighbors, co-workers and families have provided food certificates and gifts to deserving families in the community through The Neighborhood Alliance. Alliance volunteers coordinate the program by providing the first names, ages and wish lists of those in need to donors, and arrange drop-off sites and delivery of gifts
