Our commitment to service finds expression beyond our client relationships. We volunteer our time and energy to many charities, foundations and other organizations working to improve our schools, our neighborhoods and our business environment.
Shulman Rogers’ Community Outreach Committee identifies, coordinates and executes volunteer activities throughout Montgomery County and Metro Washington. Below are just a few of our recent service projects and community events.
Best Buddies Maryland
Best Buddies is the world’s largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Shulman Rogers takes an active role in Best Buddies Maryland. In 2021, as well as in past years, the Firm will serve as the Presenting Sponsor for the annual Friendship Walk. In 2019, the Shulman Rogers Friendship Walk team raised over $15,000, and we have our sights set on topping that number in 2021!
Managing Shareholder Sam Spiritos Chairs the Best Buddies Maryland, D.C. Metro Advisory Board and holds a special connection to the organization. “I am passionate about my involvement with Best Buddies, and serve in memory of my brother, Malcolm, who had Down’s syndrome. I am determined to help Best Buddies Maryland achieve its mission of friendship and employment for people with I/DD.” – Sam Spiritos, Managing Shareholder
Since the first golf tournament in 2005, the EagleBank Foundation has raised over $3.5 million for the benefit of local area hospitals and organizations in their fight against breast cancer. These funds have enabled local hospitals and other cancer-focused organizations in our community to continue ongoing research and provide support services—all dedicated to eradicating breast cancer.
Shulman Rogers Shareholder, Don Rogers, serves as Chairman of the EagleBank Foundation and a member of EagleBank’s Board of Directors.
Annual Bake Sale
Each February, Shulman Rogers’ Community Outreach Committee organizes a Valentine’s Day Bake Sale, donating all proceeds to a Montgomery County or Greater DC non-profit. In 2020, the Bake Sale raised over $1,800 for Warrior Canine Connection, an organization that utilizes a Mission Based Trauma Recovery model to help recovering Warriors reconnect with their families, communities, and life. By interacting with the dogs as they move from puppyhood to training to adult service dogs, Warrior Trainers benefit from a physiological and psychological animal-human connection. Because of their efforts, Veterans with disabilities receive the finest in trained service dogs.
Annual Toy Drive
For more than 30 years, The Holiday Giving Project of Montgomery County, a collaborative effort of non-profits, local governments and faith groups, has helped residents in need celebrate the holidays. Shulman Rogers is proud to be a part of The Kennedy Cluster Project, run though Leadership Montgomery, which helps serve 200 local families with gifts, groceries and good cheer this holiday season.
Our Last Straw
Shulman Rogers is a proud supporter of Our Last Straw, a coalition of restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, event venues and organizations across the DC metropolitan region and beyond on a mission: Eliminate single-use plastic straws.
Led by Dan Simons and the Farmers Restaurant Group, Our Last Straw is an important contributor to global efforts to address single-use plastics and reduce plastic pollution.
American Red Cross Blood Drive
Throughout the year, Shulman Rogers holds American Red Cross blood drives for the Firm’s staff, along with members of Park Potomac community. Donors have helped saved the lives of hundreds in need through the drives.
