Community Involvement Not only do we care about bettering ourselves and our industry, but we are also passionate about giving back to the communities that have given us so much. We are very proud of our involvement in charitable and local organizations and will continue to give back as our firm grows.Our strong sense of industry and community keep us actively involved in various professional and civic organizations, and numerous philanthropic activities. These include:National MPS Societyhttp://mpssociety.orgNational MPS Society is an organization of community members are that are dedicated to finding a cure and advancing knowledge of mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) and related diseases. Normally, the body uses enzymes to break down and recycle materials in cells. In individuals with MPS and related diseases, the missing or insufficient enzyme prevents the proper recycling process, resulting in the storage of materials in virtually every cell of the body. As a result, cells do not perform properly and may cause progressive damage throughout the body, including the heart, bones, joints, respiratory system and central nervous system.We encourage you to visit their site for more information or to get involved. Jerry and his family enjoy volunteering for the National MPS Society because they are passionate about doing what they can to advance treatment for MPS. Their vast experience with the organization includes participating on the Board of Directors, being the appointed Treasurer, and traveling to board meetings all over the country. They even make an annual trek to Washington D.C., where they have meetings and do advocacy work with local senators and congresspeople. Jerry currently does pro-bono financial planning for the organization to further help out. We are always looking to involve ourselves in other community organizations and are excited to grow our list for the coming year. If you have suggestions for deserving volunteer opportunities, we would love to hear your feedback!
