Social Responsibility

Merrimak is proud to be a part of a variety of causes that promote the health, happiness, and success of those in our community at large. Our charitable contributions have sponsored better healthcare and scientific discovery, undergraduate scholarships, pet adoption, and weekend meals for school-aged children that depend on the federally funded Free and Reduced Meal Program on weekdays. In addition to these various corporate giving initiatives, Merrimak encourages employees to engage with our local community directly by partnering with St. Vincent de Paul of Marin County to serve meals to the homeless population in San Rafael, California.
