A Commitment to Caring
We are passionate about giving back to the community. We participate in several charitable events and community service activities throughout the year, including volunteering at a local food pantry. As a trained volunteer EMT for more than 15 years, Peter's service extended beyond Westchester County to Ground Zero in 2001.
Here are some of the causes near to our hearts:
Hillside Food Outreach
This local charity delivers food on a monthly basis to more than 2,000 housebound people living at or below the poverty level.
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
The Unified Retirement Planning Group team supports the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The firm’s donations go toward funding research for a cure for blood cancers.
Children's Heart Foundation
The Congenital Heart Walk series is the largest walk series solely dedicated to CHD research, uniting supporters of The Children’s Heart Foundation from around the country, to help fund CHD research that improves survival, longevity and quality of life for our community.
Children’s Heart Foundation
In the spirit of giving, Unified Retirement Planning Group accepted new and unwrapped toys, books and crafts for children ages newborn to 18 years for the Children's Heart Foundation Annual Toy Drive.
We are grateful for the amazing work of the Ossining Police Department and all the brave people on the front lines, especially during the Covid-19 crisis. We’re happy to show them our appreciation.
