Each fall, Marsh & McLennan Agency (MMA) kicks off a season of giving through the Barney & Barney Foundation. The foundation awards grants to local non-profits, raising funds through the annual Rock the Foundation rock concert and golf tournaments in Orange County and the Bay Area. In addition to donating their time and resources at these events, our colleagues enjoy getting to know the grant recipients and the work they do by spending time volunteering. This year colleagues took advantage of volunteer opportunities at Home Start in San Diego, George Mark Children’s House in the Bay Area, and Laura’s House in Orange County.
Here’s a recap:
At Home Start

From their Maternity Shelter Program to parenting classes to child development specialists and so much more, children and their families depend on Home Start. Key to their success is a focus on a variety of self-sufficiency programs which allow their clients to develop the skills needed to thrive.
