For some thoughts about why supporting EIS is worthwhile, please check out this video by Autumn Swope, a student at Marymount Manhattan College, our EIS Service Learning Partner:
EIS is thrilled to announce that the Brown Rudnick Center for the Public Interest has donated to our organization. Their generous support will allow us to continue in servicing our clients. Hear why this wonderful law firm decided to support us.
“They collectively felt that the work that you have done, particularly and the area that you serve is one of the more important areas of need and that your organization is providing assistance in a meaningful, effective way. We are pleased to be able to support the important work that you are doing to provide access to justice for some of the most vulnerable in our society.” – Albert W. Wallis, Executive Director, Center for the Public Interest

COMEDY NIGHT TO BENEFIT EIS
Sharon Scott, the Community Affairs Director at Ravenswood Plant, and her team joined EIS and an enthusiastic crowd at Comedy Night on May 10. Ravenswood Plant continues to be a long- term Foundation partner of EIS.
Although the comedians were great, the real star of the evening might have been this UES resident who shared her EIS success story with the crowd.
EIS is a proud member of the PBS Channel 13/WLIW Community Hall of Fame.
