The law firm of Miller Canfield is celebrating 30 years in Kalamazoo by volunteering time and donating to 30 local nonprofit organizations.

The office officially kicked off its anniversary celebration Oct. 1. Dubbed “Celebrating 30 Years in 30 Ways,” the celebration will continue for a year.  

“Our 30th anniversary in Kalamazoo is a milestone bigger than a single-day celebration,” said Danielle Mason Anderson, principal and resident director of the Kalamazoo office.  “We want to continue making a positive impact in our community and working with organizations on a more personal level. We have always supported local charitable and nonprofit organizations – by volunteering, serving on boards, and making financial contributions – but this is a more hands-on approach to giving back.” 

Miller Canfield’s Kalamazoo office, with about 40 lawyers and staff, began its celebration by participating in the .1K Walk for Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan (see photo page 2).
