‘Green Team’ Mandelbaum Raises Funds for Brain Injury Charity

“Green Team” Mandelbaum Raises Funds for Brain Injury Charity THE GREEN TEAM: Mandelbaum Salsburg attorneys and staff wore green and jeans at the firm’s Roseland offices on March 23, 2018, to support the Opportunity Project, a charity that aids people with brain injuries.

In honor of Brain Injury Awareness Month, “Team Mandelbaum,” the charitable arm of Mandelbaum Salsburg in Roseland, sponsored a wear green day in conjunction with its monthly jeans day to raise money for Opportunity Project, a clubhouse program founded in 1993 empowering people with brain injury. Attorneys and staff donated $5 to wear jeans to work for the day, and many chose to wear green in support of raising awareness. The firm said it will donate $600 to the organization. On the last Friday of every month, the firm gives its attorneys and staff the opportunity to wear jeans with a $5 donation, and the donation goes to a local charity important to the team.
