Just as we’re committed to helping our clients strengthen and grow their businesses, we believe we have the responsibility to help strengthen the quality of life in the communities where we live and work. Many times a year, CMBers come together outside of the office to volunteer their time, skills, and resources to give back to various causes, including:
Light the Night Walk
We’ve been participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light the Night Walk since 2008, and we’ve raised over $65,000 for LLS in the process. At Light the Night, walkers carry illuminated lanterns—white for survivors, red for supporters, and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer. Thousands of walkers—men, women and children—form a community of caring people, bringing light to the dark world of cancer. Learn more about why and how we’re involved.
St. Francis House
Over the past few years, CMB employees have developed a relationship with the Sullivan Family Moving Ahead Program at the St. Francis House. The Moving Ahead Program (MAP) is a job-and life-skills training program that helps those who have experienced homelessness, mental illness, addiction, or incarceration develop the tools to prepare them to find and retain employment. CMBers help by simulating the job interview experience and providing feedback on everything from resumes to interview skills in order to help prepare participants for the final step in the program—applying and interviewing for a job.
Boys and Girls Club
For the past two years, CMB has conducted pro bono work for the Boys and Girls Club of Boston (BGCB), an organization whose mission is to help young people build strong character and realize their full potential as citizens and leaders. A few CMBers have also been a part of the Boys and Girls Club’s Evaluations and Outcomes committee, which serves to help refine data collection and assessment practices of BGCB’s programs and initiatives.
Every June, CMBers participate in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge. This year the Challenge donated money to the signature program of the Catholic Schools Foundation of Boston—the Inner-City Scholarship Fund. It was the ninth year Chadwick Martin Bailey had participated.
Each year, our male employees grow moustaches for a serious cause. That’s right—our office does Movember. Through their tremendous mustache-growing efforts, we’re able to raise funds for men’s health. Learn more about Movember.
