Hard to believe but April 1st is our 20th anniversary. From a small, unknown shop to a mid-sized agency known for doing great work and for being a great place to work (especially if you play softball). To all of our employees, past & present, thank you for making M+P what it is today.
For the second year in a row, M+P participated in Operation Backpack and donated over 40 filled backpacks to children in need. This year, a record-breaking 13,500 backpacks were distributed to elementary school children in over 100 homeless and domestic violence shelters.
M+P partnered with Volunteers of America for initiatives designed to help give back to the community. Merkley volunteered at Birthday Wishes parties for kids living in NYC homeless shelters. Agency volunteers set-up arts & crafts and celebrated 14 kids' birthdays ranging in age from 1 to 15 years old.
M+P just launched client O’Charley’s Facebook page in January, 2011, but it already ranks #4 on Expion’s ranking of top 10 chains with the highest percentage of active fans. Nation’s Restaurant News reports that “Executives at several restaurant chains say cultivating a core of actively engaged fans…increases their return on marketing investment.”
