MarksNelson was honored by The Leading Edge Alliance (LEA) for its Wrapped in Warmth Program. The firm was presented with the 2017 Edge Community Service Initiative award during a ceremony in Denver, Colorado last month.
Wrapped in Warmth is part of the firm’s award-winning Marks of Kindness Program, and was created in 2016 to help Kansas City’s homeless during the holiday season. Last year, MarksNelson employees hung more than 400 scarves, hats, and gloves on trees or wrapped them around light poles at locations near Crown Center and the Downtown KCMO Library Branch.
The goal for 2017 is to double the firm’s impact.
