Every Friday, participating G.R. Reid staffers make a charitable contribution when they wear jeans to work. Subsequently, every month the G.R. Reid employee team makes a donation to a different Charity. The most recent contribution was to Cycle for Survival in support of rare cancer research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering.
Cycle for Survival is the movement to beat rare cancers. High-energy indoor team cycling events provide a tangible way people to fight back—100% of all money raised directly funds lifesaving rare cancer research. Rare cancer patients make up about half of all people fighting cancer, but they often have limited or no treatment options because rare cancer research is drastically underfunded. Cycle for Survival raised $34 million in 2017—more than $178 million in a decade. Every single dollar is directly allocated to rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center within six months of the events. Click to learn more.
The employees of G.R. Reid are proud to have supported the 2016 Holiday Gift Card Drive sponsored by The Safe Center Long Island. The firm is particularly proud to have supported Aaron Cohen, son of partner John Cohen, in his effort to raise funds for the center through a school project at RC Murphy Jr. High in Stony Brook, Long Island. Aaron’s efforts, with G.R.Reid’s support raised over $1,000.
The donated gift cards, in $25 denominations, were collected and distributed to client families which enabled them to purchase holiday gifts for their children. The Safe Center LI is a creation of two former non-profit agencies that separately served the victims of domestic abuse and child abuse. Located in a historic Grumman building in Bethpage, it was created in 2014 through the merger of the Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CADV)and the Coalition Against Child Abuse & Neglect (CCAN). Each had been providing services for victims of abuse for over 30 years. Their mission is to protect, assist and empower victims of family violence and sexual assault while challenging and changing social systems that tolerate and perpetuate abuse.

“We at The Safe Center are extremely appreciative of the hard work and efforts that go into making this a great day on a beautiful golf course.” said Cindy Scott, co-Executive Director of TSCLI. “We also invite Long Island’s business community to support victims of abuse through any number of impactful sponsor opportunities.”
The event was known as the CCAN golf outing until CCAN (Coalition Against Child Abuse and Neglect) merged with the Coalition Against Domestic Violence to form The Safe Center LI. The mission is to protect, assist, and empower victims of family violence and sexual assault while challenging and changing social systems that tolerate and perpetuate abuse. Located in an historic Grumman-era building at 15 Grumman Road W., Bethpage, The Safe Center LI is a specially designed space which houses a Nassau County multi-disciplinary team where all are dedicated to restoring hope for victims of abuse.
