8 While we pursue our professional goals, we also endeavor to improve the quality of life in our communities and around the world. Members of the Moss & Barnett team apply the same dedication to service by making significant contributions of their time and resources to charitable organizations important to all of us. M&B Cares participated in four service projects this past spring and summer. Happy Hour Squared On April 19, 2018, Moss & Barnett employees, family members, and friends rolled up their sleeves and participated in an innovative monthly event dubbed ”Happy Hour Squared,” held at The Brave New Workshop Theatre (BNW) in downtown Minneapolis. BNW has partnered with Finnegans, Inc. (charitable beer company) to reinvent happy hour, with the goals of feeding the hungry and serving the community. Over 2,000 sandwiches were handed off to Allan Law’s MRD 363 Days Food Program to feed the hungry on the streets that night.

On May 9, 2018, Moss & Barnett employees put together 30 care packages filled with cookies, movies, magazines, books, office supplies, toiletries, and other items to show our support for these courageous men and women who serve our country. Our connection to the 4th EMU is through Nicholas D. Tautges, Chief Personnel Specialist (U.S. Navy) and Moss & Barnett’s Accounts Payable Specialist. Nick has been deployed three times (Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Afghanistan were duty stations) and is currently a member of the U.S. Navy Reserve. Most of the deployed members of the 4th EMU are a part of Nick’s U.S. Navy Reserve unit, the Expeditionary Medical Facility (EMF) Great Lakes One, which is Headquartered at Naval Station Great Lakes, Illinois, and train together on Annual Training and other exercises during the year. The members of the 4th EMU have been deployed to provide medical assistance to U.S. fighting forces on the ground in Iraq and Syria and to make arrangements for further medical transport to a permanent hospital out of country, if necessary. Additionally, they provide medical assistance to local nationals who have been devastated by the continued conflict in their country. The deployment is for nine months boots on ground. The 4th EMU will soon be replaced by the Moss & Barnett Spirit of Giving Pictured from left to right: Natasha Lenz, Nick Tautges, Josh Oie, Andy Malec, Mark Peterson, and Kevin Busch (not pictured: Jana Aune Deach, Gina DeConcini, Carin Del Fiacco, Carla Garber, Deb LaTerza, Lori O’Donnell, Debbie Weinstock, and our Moss & Barnett team members who donated items to fill the care packages) Pictured from left to right (back row): Cindi Littlejohn, Jay Littlejohn, Peter Engebretson, Jana Aune Deach, Michael Bondi, Christine Bondi; (middle row) Kelly McGinty, Cheryl Riggs, Shelly Doerr, Nick Tautges, Katherine Pasker, Pat Egdorf; (front row) Nancy Kiskis, Gina DeConcini,Andrea Szondy, Lindsay Case (not pictured: Jeff Kaphingst)
