Turkey Tails -- November -- MSI's Broomfield employees purchased "feathers" for $2 each to cover a cartoon turkey, with all proceeds donated to the Denver Rescue Mission for their Thanksgiving Meal program. $213 was raised for the program.
The Angel Tree Project was done in conjunction with the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army collects names of children from families that will not be able to afford presents for the kids. MSI obtained 30 names of local children that we could help during the holiday season. The 30 names were hung on the tree in the main lobby and all were snatched off the tree within a week. Our generous employees purchased gifts from a list of most wanted items and returned them to the tree. We then delivered the gifts to the Salvation Army office in Broomfield and they were thrilled. The presents were distributed to the children the week before Christmas so they could all have a joyous holiday.
