Moss & Barnett Launches “M&B Cares” Philanthropic Initiative
Minneapolis, MN (June 23, 2017) – In recognition of the firm's long standing philanthropic values, Moss & Barnett, A Professional Association, is pleased to announce that it has launched a new firm wide philanthropic initiative, “M&B Cares.”
Moss & Barnett employees have demonstrated committed levels of philanthropic participation in a wide range of civic, charitable, and other community service for many years. The firm would like to expand and encourage participation in and provide recognition to volunteerism by organizing quarterly philanthropic initiatives. Employees are encouraged to submit nominations for organizations and activities that Moss & Barnett volunteers can assist with and participate in to the committee overseeing M&B Cares for consideration. The M&B Cares committee members are attorney Jana Aune Deach (Chair), paralegal Joe Avechuco, paralegal Shelly Doerr, accounting clerk Nick Tautges, and attorney Jeff Waldron.
“We are very grateful that our employees endeavor to improve the quality of life in our communities and that they apply the same dedication to service by making significant contributions of their time and resources to charitable organizations important to all of us,” said Jana Aune Deach, Chair of M&B Cares and a director on Moss & Barnett’s board of directors.
Our first M&B Cares initiative took place on June 4, 2017. A group of Moss & Barnett employees, family members, and friends participated in the Feed My Starving Children’s mobile packing event, LOVE SOMALIA, held at the St. Paul River Centre. The M&B Cares group filled 46 boxes of food that will provide 9,936 meals. During our single two-hour shift at LOVE SOMALIA, there were 108 packing stations and together everyone packed 645,568 meals.
