Corboy & Demetrio participated in the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans’ Secret Snowflake holiday giving program this holiday season. Employees “adopted” three U.S. Veterans and their families who are currently clients of MSHV, purchasing them gifts from their wish lists. Corboy & Demetrio Managing Partner Kenneth T.
