St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital

In 2016, all of us at ITM TwentyFirst set out to make a difference. Not only did we donate our time volunteering throughout the year, we also chose a national organization to support monetarily. As a team, stretching across three different offices in three different states, we came together to raise and donate $4,450 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. We are excited to continue our efforts in 2017 with both familiar and new organizations in Minnesota, Iowa, and New York.
