Giving Back In Iowa

They say that it's better to give than to receive. Very true, and two McGladrey offices in Iowa took that saying to heart this holiday season.

The Des Moines office recently held its annual “Adopt A Star” toy drive for the Polk County Family Enrichment Center. The office was able to help make the holidays more enjoyable for 52 children in the Des Moines area which is up from the 40 children they helped last year. The Family Enrichment Center was overwhelmed by the generosity of the McGladrey employees whose participation helped 10 percent of the 500 children that would have gone without gifts this year.

The Cedar Rapids office gave as well, and had a fun time doing it by participating in a Ugly Sweater Contest that raised funds and gathered gifts for local needy families. Ugly Sweater Contest winners included Mike T., Director-Wealth Management, who won the Celebrity Award from Nicole Agee, local news anchor at KCRG TV-9, who was brought in to judge the event. Aimee J., client service representative, won the People’s Choice award.
