Moss & Barnett Spirit of Giving – M&B Cares | 2020

Moss & Barnett Advocate (Fall 2020 edition)

While our ability to participate as in-person volunteers was limited due to COVID-19 consideration, M&B Cares was able to contribute to these service projects in 2020:


M&B Cares collected healthy snacks and toys for FamilyWise, a non-profit organization that offers supervised parenting and safe exchanges between non-custodial parents and their children in a safe environment in one of its five locations.

Hope Academy School Supply Drive

M&B Cares was pleased to again sponsor a school supply drive this year – this time for a 1st grade classroom of 20 students at Hope Academy, a diverse K-12th grade inner city school located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Sneakers for Soldiers

M&B Cares collected cash donations in support of Sneakers for Soldiers that provides athletic shoes to deployed combat troops from all branches of the military. The soldiers are able to select the brand and style that best fits their feet and their needs. We were able provide 21 pairs of customized sneakers to our brave men and women in the military.

Beyond New Beginnings

M&B Cares made a cash donation to Beyond New Beginnings, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting young families by providing safe, secure housing, programming, and high-quality child care to those currently enrolled or graduated from the New Beginnings program.

Hope Academy Christmas Book Giveaway

M&B Cares made a cash donation to the Hope Academy Christmas Book Giveaway so that each of the school’s students would receive a set of two gift-wrapped books. Hope Academy is a private inner-city school serving urban youth located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
