On May 19, 2022, Esperanza Immigration Legal Services (EILS), hosted a fundraiser entitled “Celebrating Hope for Immigrants: Cuentos de Esperanza”. Galfand Berger Senior Partner Michael Malvey, who currently serves as Chair of the EILS Board of Directors, was one of several presenters at the event, which was emceed by 6ABC News anchor Walter Perez. The event raised over $50,000.00 that will be used for EILS program services.
EILS is the leading non-profit immigration legal service provider in North Philadelphia. The organization’s primary mission is to provide immigration legal services to low-income immigrants. Galfand Berger, LLP was proud to be the lead sponsor of EILS’ fundraiser, which highlighted the stories (or cuentos) of immigrants and the powerful contributions they make in their communities.
EILS provides critical services include special visas for unaccompanied minor children, self-petitions for victims of domestic violence, naturalization (the process by which a non-citizen may acquire citizenship) and green card applications, and family petitions (to obtain green cards or naturalization for family members of U.S. citizens).
Not only did EILS’ fundraiser highlight immigrants’ stories and their lasting impact on their communities, but the funds raised will also ensure that the organization continues to provide an array of vital services to individuals well into the future.
