The third year of T&M Giving has come to an end, and despite the challenges of 2020, Tyson and Mendes’ charity arm thrived! Our Giving Tuesday Campaign set an initial annual goal of $10,000, but the firm surpassed this goal, raising a total of $13,250. Bob Tyson and Pat Mendes graciously matched these donations.
This year for T&M Giving’s virtual volunteer day, we had a wonderful opportunity to partner with the non-profit organization Braven. Braven’s mission is to empower first-generation college students, students from low-income backgrounds, and students of color with the skills necessary to transition from college to strong first jobs.
T&M Giving Program’s first year is in the books! We had a great year with two successful employee volunteer days and a Giving Tuesday Campaign with contributions from the whole firm. We had 30 employees participate on our volunteer committee, over 100 employees participate in our volunteer days, and employees throughout our eight offices volunteered over 60 hours of their time.
In January 2018, Tyson & Mendes established T&M Giving to celebrate the milestone of hiring our 100th attorney. The program has seen tremendous success over the first half of the year. This spring, the firm held a nationwide volunteer day, on which each office volunteered at their local Boys & Girls Club. The firm hosted a pizza party, held an Easter egg hunt, facilitated fun learning activities, helped with homework, played games, and gave career inspired speeches to young teens.
SAN DIEGO (Feb. 05, 2018) – Entering 2018 poised for accelerated growth, civil litigation firm Tyson & Mendes LLP announced today that it has hired its 100th attorney, as well as launched a new charitable giving initiative, T&M Giving.
