BMSS Continues Legacy of Giving Back to Local Communities

Employees from BMSS’ Birmingham locations have been “working” outside the office over the past few weeks. They have been serving hands-on throughout the city with several nonprofit organizations.

Throughout October, employees volunteered with Christian Service Mission, Bundles of Hope, Grace’s Kitchen, Firehouse Shelter and March of Dimes assisting with a variety of tasks ranging from construction work to cooking to folding T-shirts.

Birmingham Community Service Day Organizer Rhonda Pierce said, “One of the things I love about BMSS is the concern it shows for our community by giving us the opportunity to serve through various organizations who are striving to make our community strong and healthy.”

Since BMSS’ creation in 1991, community outreach has always been a key component of the firm’s identity. Each of the geographic offices primarily volunteers with nonprofits within a 50-mile radius.

“We’re deeply rooted and connected in our communities and involved in local business and social organizations,” said CEO Don Murphy. “We understand the issues affecting your local community.

“As a member of the business community, we are committed to giving back to the community in which we live and work,” said Chief Practice Officer John Shank. “We value our commitment to service and are honored to host firm-wide service days where all employees will be given the chance, and are highly encouraged, to provide community service in their local areas.”

Employees from BMSS’ Gadsden and Huntsville locations, as well as from wealth management sister company, BMSS Wesson, will also be participating in their local communities before the end of the year.

“It’s essential to contribute our time and efforts; our firm-wide service days provide an opportunity to show our continued support and gratitude for the valuable work these organizations do every single day.” Shank said.
