Lazard + Operation Warm
In 2016, Lazard teamed up with Operation Warm to provide employees a volunteer opportunity to have a meaningful impact in the life of a child and make a positive contribution to the community. In 2017, we teamed up again; together we delivered brand new winter coats to children in need in New York City. The coats were funded through a generous donation from Lazard and hand delivered by Lazard associates.
The partnership took a remarkable turn when Lazard employees came together a second time to give a gift of warmth. A local elementary school requested brand new coats for children who had been displaced by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and were arriving to New York City in the fall and winter. Lazard held a casual day, employees donated to dress down, enjoyed a light breakfast and together raised more than $10,000.

“It makes me feel proud to work at Lazard and it makes me happy that we gave something back to the community.”
“When I heard that Lazard was involved in this I got really excited. First of all we are helping children and second of all we are making a tangible impact.”
On December 16th, 2016, employee volunteers from Lazard teamed up with Operation Warm to provide brand new winter coats to children in need at PS 51, an elementary school in Midtown Manhattan.

Lazard Honors Employees While Giving Back
Beneath the steel-gray Manhattan clouds, two million hands clutched hot coffee, briefcases or scarves as walkers rushed to beat the traffic to work. But something was different on December 16, 2016. A handful of individuals had a different purpose this day. Instead of heading to their offices in the iconic Rockefeller Center, employees of Lazard found their way, instead, to the neighborhood known as Hell’s Kitchen.
