Moore’s annual employee holiday party includes a silent auction that benefits a selected charity. This year’s recipient was Minot’s Domestic Violence Crisis Center. Employees contribute to the cause at the party and the company matches the amount.
Yesterday, employees from our Minot office delivered a $12,000 donation to the crisis center.
“We’re so pleased to be able to help an organization that plays such a vital role in this community, providing comfort, care and security for those in need,” said Brock Storrusten, our Minot office branch manager.

The holidays may be over, but one local company was still in a giving spirit Thursday afternoon.
Moore Engineering, an employee-owned civil engineering and land survey company, has donated more than $12,000 to the Domestic Violence Crisis Center.
Moore employees raised the money at their annual holiday gathering and the company then matched the amount to bring it to over 12 thousand.
“It’s really nice when community members come and say, ‘We want to do something for you,’ because it means they appreciate what we’re doing, what we’re trying to do for our community,” said Dena Filler, executive director of the DVCC. “We’re here to serve the community and to make it a safe place for everyone.”
“It’s important to keep our community strong, that’s what we’re about,” said Brock Storrusten, Moore branch manager. “We’re about communities, and part of our mantra is: we want to make things better. Our goal is whether its sustainable communities or the people that live within them, I think trying to make things better is important. And trying to ask and expecting for more from the community is important.”
As a non-profit organization, the Domestic Violence Crisis Center relies on donations. And if you’d like to give back to the DVCC, visit their website www.Courage4Change.org.
