As we start the new year, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on a few bright spots for MEM and the communities we serve. Enjoy our Top 15 corporate impact moments.

1. Celebrated 25 years of sending workers home safely. As part of that, we made charitable gifts to two organizations: Job Point and the Safety Council of Greater St. Louis. And we encouraged our employees to pay it forward.

2. Dropped off 1,280 ounces of hand sanitizer and N95 masks to Boone County Emergency Management to help keep frontline workers safe.

3. Partnered with area insurance companies in Columbia to provide 12,000 meals to healthcare workers.

4. Social distanced, pulled weeds, planted made our Adopt a Spot bloom and thrive.

5. Helped homeless veterans get a new start at Welcome Home with a $5,000 to their Vets Work program.
