The team at CI Budros Ruhlin Roe believes in the importance of giving back. Our firm and individual team members are engaged participants in creating good for the community in which we live, work, and play. Our involvement in local causes and organizations helps us develop a deeper connection with the people around us.
Giving thanks: Assembling backpacks for Blessings in a Backpack
The CI BRR team recently packed backpacks for Blessings in a Backpack. The organizations supplies nonperishable food items for elementary school-aged children to take home for the weekends and long holiday breaks. We packed more than 150 backpacks and donated over $2,700 to Albert Chapman Elementary in Dublin, Fairwood Elementary in Columbus and Moler Elementary in Obetz.
Beyond the Red Kettle: Joining the Salvation Army in helping those in need
For more than 10 years, CI Budros Ruhlin Roe has worked with the Salvation Army to take care of the needy during the holidays. BRR staffers have rung the bell and collected donations at Red Kettle locations; participated in Adopt-A-Family to supply Christmas gifts; contributed to the Angel Tree Toy Drive for local children; and served hot meals through the Salvation Army Christmas Cheer program.
Supporting families that have made the ultimate sacrifice
The CI Budros Ruhlin Roe team appreciates and supports the services of all men and women in our nation's military. Through a silent auction benefiting the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), and through a TAPS holiday card-making event, CI BRR extended that support to families grieving for a family member who died while serving in the Armed Forces.
Helping kids with disabilities learn important life lessons
The LifeTown organization helps children with disabilities gain valuable life skills and transition to the "real world" by allowing them to practice those skills in a safe and manageable environment: An indoor, pretend city where participants role-play daily life. Members of the CI Budros, Ruhlin Roe team volunteered to be this tiny city's bankers, librarians, safety officers, and other "townspeople," helping kids get comfortable with these important daily interactions.
