In honor of hiring our 100th attorney, Tyson & Mendes established a charity program to give back across the country. As chosen by our employees, the T&M Giving program supports organizations committed to providing educational opportunities and resources to disadvantaged youth.
Charitable efforts as part of T&M Giving involve offsite volunteer work designed to get all employees out of their respective offices to donate their time and support our communities. In the spring of 2018, T&M Giving partnered with the Boys & Girls Club in eight cities to provide after-school tutoring to local students. During the fall of 2018, T&M Giving partnered with the Ronald McDonald House to serve meals to families of children with serious illnesses. Throughout 2019 our offices volunteered with children in their local communities. Volunteer hours were spent helping with homework, reading, playing games, and mentoring young minds.
Through T&M Giving, employees also have the option to make monthly donations to a worthy cause. In 2018, employees voted to donate their collected funds to No Kid Hungry, an organization committed to ending childhood hunger. Founding Partners Robert Tyson and Patrick Mendes matched the funds raised by the employees totaling $13,600! In 2019, we were able to donate $16,000 to My Stuff Bags Foundation, an organization which provides bags of essential items to children in foster or crisis situations. The firm employees get to vote on the charity which receives the donations each year. The 2020 goal is to be able to donate $20,000!
Tyson & Mendes is proud to support these and other noble causes as we continue our strategic growth.
