    In the midst economic uncertainty for many charitable organizations, the Holmes Murphy Foundation selects 29 to donate funds to as part of its Giving Back Program.

    Holmes Murphy is excited to announce its more than $100,000 donation to 29 different non-profit organizations through the Holmes Murphy Foundation Giving Back Program.
