Community Involvement

Connors & Ferris and our people emphasize our commitment to Western New York’s injured workers and people with disabilities through extensive participation in the communities where we live. 

The attorneys at Connors & Ferris have served in local government and on Boards of Directors for charitable institutions and institutions of learning. Our people participate in, donate to, and support local youth sports throughout WNY. Many of these commitments are highlighted in the attorney biographies, and here is a brief list of just some of the charities and not-for-profit organizations that Connors & Ferris supports –

Connors & Ferris – Proud to Present the JIM KELLY Every Score Challenge Benefiting the Hunter’s Hope Foundation

During the 2013 football season, Connors & Ferris and you can make a contribution to the Every Score Challenge Benefiting Hunter's Hope Foundation every time the Bills score a touchdown, make a field goal, extra point or safety.

Each time the Bills score, the Workers' Compensation and Social Security Disability attorneys at Connors & Ferris will donate $25 to Hunter's Hope. You can also donate any amount for every point the Bills score and be eligible for weekly prizes and three end-of-the-year grand prizes.

The attorneys and people of Connors & Ferris are excited to again team up with the Buffalo Bills this season to support the Hunter's Hope Foundation!

About the Hunter's Hope Foundation

The Hunter's Hope Foundation was established in 1997 by Jim Kelly – Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame Quarterback - and his wife Jill, after their infant son Hunter (2/14/97—8/5/05) was diagnosed with Krabbe Leukodystrophy, an inherited fatal nervous system disease.

While Jim and Jill have been blessed with the opportunity to share Hunter's story and the hope of the Foundation named after their son all over the world, their greatest passion is to bring encouragement and hope to families in the midst of suffering.

Please find out more about Hunter's Hope and their mission for universal newborn screening for every child, everytime, everywhere, by visiting their website (www.huntershope.org). And please don’t forget that you can team with Connors & Ferris to support this worthy cause through the Every Score Challenge Benefiting the Hunter's Hope Foundation.
