Michael Best & Friedrich LLP will deliver hundreds of handmade hats, mittens and scarves to the Cooperating Congregation of Waukesha County ("CCWC") as a part of its Catch the Bug community service initiative on Monday, November 2.
“The Catch the Bug Initiative is a firm outreach program to aid those in need,” said Josh Gimbel, Michael Best Partner and Co-Chair of the firm’s Community Outreach Committee.
In March, Michael Best employees attended classes taught by fellow firm employees to learn how to knit and crochet hats, mittens and scarves. They also learned how to craft winter items from donated sweaters and fleece. Throughout the year, participants dedicated hours to handcrafting hats, mittens and scarves to donate to those in need. CCWC will distribute the hand made items to individuals in and around Waukesha.
Michael Best launched the Catch the Bug
Initiative in January 2009 as a way to get employees involved in community outreach activities. Since its inception, the firm has donated to numerous area charities and dedicated hours to activities such as collecting items, crafting personalized holiday cards, and knitting scarves, hats and mittens by hand.
