The importance of giving back through community service

EMJ believes our purpose is to serve, and that extends beyond our office doors. In addition to clients, colleagues and partners, our teams are dedicated to giving back to the communities in which we work and continually demonstrate this through community service.
Each year, each office dedicates itself to a cause, from a specific charitable organization to a goal—like helping the homeless or raising funds for cancer research—and strives to commit their employees’ time and resources to this cause.
The holiday season brings joy to many, but it also creates challenges for families in unfortunate circumstances. This season, EMJ’s offices focused on local opportunities for giving.
Chattanooga donated its time to the Chattanooga Community Kitchen for the fifth year in a row. The team prepared and served meals for the city’s homeless population.
