9 5th EMU, which is also from EMF Great Lakes One, and is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the citizen Sailors who continue to Mobilize in support of contingency operations in Iraq and Syria from the Midwest. During each of Nick’s deployments, Moss & Barnett colleagues put together monthly care packages for Nick and his fellow service members. M&B Cares will now continue that tradition by sending care packages to the members of the 4th EMU throughout their deployment to let them how much we appreciate them and how grateful we are for their dedication and service. Cooks for Kids On June 28, 2018, Moss & Barnett employees and family members were honored to volunteer with the Cooks for Kids program to purchase, prepare, and serve a meal to the families at the Ronald McDonald House – Children’s Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Ronald McDonald House Charities-Upper Midwest, in partnership with the community, provides a comfortable and caring home-away-from-home that supports keeping families together and reduces stress during a child’s serious illness. Its four Twin Cities sites provide complimentary lodging, meals, and a community of support to families facing a child’s serious illness, injury, or disability.

Breaking Free Moss & Barnett employees and friends enjoyed serving a picnic lunch to the clients and families of Breaking Free at their annual barbecue held on July 28, 2018, at Newell Park in St. Paul, Minnesota. There were games and prizes for the kids and face painting, too. A good time was had by all. Breaking Free is a Minnesota-based non-profit and social justice/social change organization founded in 1996. Every year, Breaking Free helps over 500 women escape systems of prostitution and sexual exploitation through advocacy, direct services, housing, and education. Moss & Barnett has a long-standing tradition of partnering with Breaking Free. Every year, the firm’s women attorneys “adopt” Breaking Free families for the holidays, helping to ensure that these families have a joyful holiday. In addition, members of the firm donate various daily items in need such as pots and pans, silverware, and women and children’s clothing throughout the year as needed. We are very grateful to have our Moss & Barnett team members, family members, and friends get behind these important community initiatives and to give generously of their time, talent, and financial support.
