The Mx Group serves on MLK day
On Monday, January 15, The Mx Group’s employees gathered in and around Chicago for the B2B agency’s third annual Day of Service. The leadership and human resources teams extended an invitation to all Mx’ers — based in Chicagoland and across the country — to join in organized opportunities to support local charities.
As Martin Luther King Jr. once proclaimed, “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve … You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.” King’s dedication to serving others continues to inspire action for a better future.
This year, Mx’ers showed up and spent their day off as a “day on” by volunteering at an impactful charity within the community. Volunteers sorted clothing, organized medical supplies, packed frozen food and produce for food deliveries, walked, shopped, and more for the following organizations.
