Last week, Merkley+Partners was honored to receive Diamler's Global Partnership Award for our longstanding work on Mercedes-Benz marketing campaigns in the United States. Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of Daimler AG presented the award to our CEO, Alex Gellert, in Stuttgart, Germany. And in case you were wondering… yes, it lights up.
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.
Our summer interns not only got the chance to learn about Client Service, but also to perform community service. They held a bake sale to raise money for school supplies and volunteered during Sort Week. M+P is proud to have done its part in helping Volunteers of America–Greater New York distribute over 16,000 filled backpacks to schoolchildren in homeless shelters.
