Community Corner

Since 1969, Winegrad, Hess, Friedman & Levitt, LLC has been a part of the local community. Initially based in downtown Baltimore, WHFL has been in Baltimore County since 1989. In addition to its emphasis on providing the highest quality and personal legal services to its clients, WHFL believes that it should contribute meaningfully to the local and surrounding community as well.

WHFL is a proud supporter of local youth recreation programs in the Baltimore and Carroll County areas. These programs are dedicated to building character, courage, and loyalty in our area’s youth by providing a fun, safe, and competitive sports programs. Contributions help offset the costs of equipment, player insurance, and umpires as well as help supplement player participation fees.

Our attorneys accept pro bono cases from the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service.  Though its network of volunteer attorneys like those at WHFL, MVLS provides free legal representation to Marylanders with limited income and free legal help for community-based nonprofits that are working to strengthen low-income communities in Maryland.

WHFL is proud to support The Tidewater Alliance, an organization that supports The Salvation Army and Forgotten Angels to help those in need of food, clothing and other daily necessities.

WHFL and its staff is pleased to support local run/walks to raise money for The Great Prostate Cancer Challenge and The Reisterstown-Owings Mills-Glyndon Chamber of Commerce annual Bloomin’ 5k Run to benefit Infusion Services at the LifeBridge Health Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute, located at Northwest and Sinai Hospitals.

WHFL has been a supporter of the Maryland Food Bank. The Maryland Food Bank was founded in 1979 to coordinate the procurement and distribution of food donations from manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and government agencies to organizations providing free food to the state’s hungry. In these difficult economic times services like these are necessary for all too many people.

WHFL has also supported the Community Crisis Center, an important nonprofit human service organization dedicated to the prevention of homelessness for residents of Reisterstown, Owings Mills and Glyndon through the provision of emergency food items, personal hygiene products, school supplies, career clothing, financial literacy, and monthly grants for eviction-prevention and utility assistance.

WHFL has been proud to support the Bea Gaddy Family Centers, a well known local organization that provided food and assistance to those in need, especially around the holiday season.

With so many members of our community suffering from some form or cancer, WHFL has been pleased to support the V Foundation. The V Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to saving lives by helping to find a cure for cancer. The V Foundation seeks to make a difference by generating broad-based support for cancer research and by creating an urgent awareness among all Americans of the importance of the war against cancer. The V Foundation performs these dual roles through advocacy, education, fundraising and philanthropy. Thanks to an endowment funded by generous donors, 100% of cash donations benefit cancer research. This means that not one single cent of your donations goes to operating expenses.
