Giving Back

Brownson Norby is committed to giving back to our community. Whether it’s volunteering our time and talents or providing financial support, we believe in good corporate citizenship.

Brownson • Norby Packs Nutritious Meals for Haiti

On Friday, March 16th, Brownson • Norby spent some time packaging food with the Feed My Starving Children program in Coon Rapids. Taking on various roles from packers, weighers, sealers, and runners, the whole experience was a lot of fun (and more of a workout than you would think!).

Brownson • Norby Gives Back

As part of the firm’s commitment to giving back to the community, Brownson • Norby attorneys Kristi Brownson and Robert Brownson began the new year by preparing and serving residents of Our Saviour’s Housing in Minneapolis on Friday, January 5, 2018. Our Saviour’s Housing serves homeless men and women with housing and meals. This work is especially vital during the cold winter months such as occurred last week. Brownson • Norby is pleased to be a part of such an important endeavor and looks forward to continued opportunities to give back to the community.

Attorneys Who Care (And Cook!)

We had the great opportunity to volunteer in the Cook for Kids program at the Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery. The mission of the nursery is to end child abuse and neglect and create strong, healthy families.

We had so much fun (as you can see) cooking and serving the meal to the children at the nursery, and look forward to continued involvement with this great cause. To find out more, or to donate or volunteer, check out their website here


Brownson Norby Participates in Operation Backpack


Operation Backpack is the Minnesota and Wisconsin Volunteers of America’s annual drive to collect new backpacks filled with school supplies for at-risk children from low-income families in the community.

Operation Backpack benefits the agency’s current clients, including foster children, inner-city students, special needs youth, and those with mental health issues. The agency also offers backpacks to community partners throughout the Twin-Cities serving at-risk youth.

Each year, thousands of kids go back to school without the supplies they need. With the help of Capella Tower tenants, the fundraiser can make sure more of them are able to start the school year off right—well-equipped and ready to learn.  Brownson & Linnihan, PLLP is in its sixth year donating backpacks to the fundraiser.  Provided with a school supply list, this year the firm shopped for the supplies that two middle school students will need for their upcoming school year.
