METAIRIE, La.—Dec. 22, 2021—This Christmas, M S Benbow & Associates (MSB) employees spread holiday cheer with charitable efforts benefiting local families from the Greater New Orleans community. Each year MSB employees contribute to philanthropic initiatives during the holidays, including an annual Toy Drive. This year, MSB employees partnered with United Way to collect toys specifically to support families impacted by Hurricane Ida.
“The holiday season is a reminder of how much we at MSB have to be thankful for this year. We strive to make a difference through initiatives that support families in need in our community,” said MSB President Leo L. Holzenthal, Jr., P.E. “Positively influencing our community through our company and personal activities is a core value at MSB.”
Last month, MSB employees held their annual food drive to share full Thanksgiving meals with families who are clients of Travelers Aid Society New Orleans, a nonprofit committed to helping homeless or stranded families and individuals regain a self-sufficient lifestyle.
