Holiday giving has been a hallmark of Tarabi - cos, Grosso & Hoffman, LLP’s annual charita - ble efforts and a cherished tradition of the firm since its inception in 2012. The importance of giving back to local community members in need has taken even deeper meaning over the past two years, as we saw countless families and small businesses devastated by the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. This past holiday season, the firm was fortu - nate and grateful to be in a position to con- tribute to local families and organizations impacted by the pandemic. Some of the contributions included: Paying rent and utility bills for families expe - riencing hardship and property damage due to natural disaster; contributing holiday meals to Operation Feed the Troops; “adopting” several Delaware families with special medical needs for the holidays, including shopping for, wrap - ping, and delivering gifts; and supporting local restaurants impacted by the pandemic. We are extremely thankful to be able to give back to the communities in which we live and work.
