CMBG3 is committed to supporting our community and giving back through out CMBG3 Cares program, an initiative that ensures that every month, our team members have a way to volunteer their time to our community or make a contribution in some way to those in need. Every month, CMBG3 Cares chooses a “theme” by which to focus our charitable and community initiatives.
In March 2021, the Cares theme was children in need. This year, we chose to focus our efforts on supporting charities that support children placed into the foster care system through no fault of their own. In California, our team identified the Orangewood Foundation, an organization that works one-on-one with youth transitioning to adult life to help them identify their own strengths, attributes, and aptitudes to empower them to overcome their challenges and reach their greatest potential. The organization works with youth in four critical areas: health & wellness, housing, life skills & employment, and education. The firm made a financial contribution to Orangewood Foundation that will help their efforts supporting children in the foster system transition as they age out.
Similarly, in Boston, the firm supported Comfort Cases, which aims to support the nearly 437,500 children that find themselves on a daily basis in the foster care system in the United States. They do so by recognizing that many children are removed from dangerous home situations so hastily that they are removed from their home with only the clothes on their backs or a trashbag with which they can hastily pack a few essential items. Comfort Cases steps in to provide children in foster care their own personal duffel bag or backpack with which they can store and carry their personal belongings, or Comfort Cares will provide children in need with a duffel bag or backpack full of essential items, such as pajamas, a set of clothes, toothbrushes, small toys, or a warm blanket.
