Budros, Ruhlin & Roe has been named the Medical Mutual Pillar Award for Community Service SHARE Award 2017 winner.
The Pillar Award for Community Service was developed by Smart Business and Medical Mutual to honor businesses and individuals dedicated to making the Central Ohio region a better place to live. The Medical Mutual Share Award is presented to one company annually that best exemplifies employee-driven community service, philanthropy and volunteerism.
“We are honored to be selected as the winner of the SHARE Award. Our employees are very passionate about the organizations they dedicate their time to,” said Matthew Ullmer, Wealth Management Administrator.
Budros, Ruhlin & Roe’s employees donate time to many organizations throughout the community including the Salvation Army, Life Care Alliance, and the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). Every year BRR employees participate in a one day, firm-wide service project in the Columbus community. In 2016, the firm supported LifeTown Columbus, which helps kids with disabilities gain valuable life skills in a “pretend city.” Another annual event is a fund raiser for a worthy cause. For 2016, it was Blessings in a Backpack, which provides school-aged children with a backpack of food for the weekend and extended holiday breaks during the school year. Employees packed over 150 backpacks for three Columbus area elementary schools prior to the extended Thanksgiving break. Budros, Ruhlin & Roe also donated $2,700 to Dublin Chapman Elementary School’s chapter of Blessings in a Backpack.
“We at Budros, Ruhlin & Roe, Inc. believe that volunteerism and corporate giving are integral parts of running a successful business. We see it as our responsibility to give back to the community that supports our business while also increasing employee engagement and comradery,” said Peggy Ruhlin, Chief Executive Officer of Budros, Ruhlin & Roe.
Budros, Ruhlin and Roe, Inc. employees will accept their award on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at The Ohio Statehouse.
