Last year, we were able to raise over $20,000 from the event for Jonathan’s Place, and this year the goal is $35,000. The proceeds from the event will benefit Jonathan’s Place programs that provide thousands of children each year with emergency shelter, foster care and residential treatment.

Mohr Partners has sponsored Jonathan’s Place for over 10 years, committing resources by allowing its associates time off to visit the cottage and planning fun activities throughout the year for the children. For example, Mohr sponsors Easter and Christmas parties annually where Mohr associates contribute items for the event such as Easter baskets, candy, toys, clothing and other items to ensure the children receive gifts and are not forgotten at these special times of the year. Additionally, several times a year Mohr associates visit the cottages for fun events and donate supplies necessary for maintaining the homes. Throughout the year, Mohr associates sponsor fundraisers to raise money for which Mohr Partners, as a company, matches all donations.
