As part of CBM’s ongoing CBM100 charitable events, the firm’s administrator Linda Murphy spearheaded and managed the collection of gently worn coats and other winter items such as jackets, scarves and hats during the month of January for Central Union Mission. Central Union Mission is a faith-based not-for-profit organization and the oldest private social service agency–founded in 1884–in Washington, DC.
Linda networked throughout the firm to enlist donations, generating several bags full of items from generous team members. As a native to the region, Linda’s knowledge of the cold months throughout Washington, DC inspired her to consider those experiencing poverty including homeless individuals, who lack proper warm clothing to withstand extreme temperatures. She appreciates the compassion and care shown by colleagues.
After collecting the coats in her office, some colleagues helped Linda carry the donated items down to her car, where Linda and the firm’s document management specialist Sal Attanasio (shown below) drove them to Central Union Mission. Friendly staff were on hand to help unload the donations.
