What we do...
MorInvolved is a public-spirited outreach program designed by StoneMor Inc. to help our company give back to communities and local charities. Through collecting donations, volunteering and team building, MorInvolved fosters engagement, recognition and a positive community outlook for our employees to create a lasting relationship between our workplace and our communities.

Five backpacks of different colors are put in plastic bags and then picked up by nonprofit social service partners directly from the site and distributed to local children within days. This high-energy event is fueled by energetic, spirit, friendly competition and provides an incredible opportunity for corporate engagement and team building.
