Experiencing COVID-19 reminded us how important it is to have a supportive community. COVID-19 has been tough for most, full of many unexpected struggles and hardships. We at BK Law Group believe it is with unity and community that we will be able to bounce back from this pandemic stronger than ever. That is why we created the Community Volunteer Nomination to recognize and reward those making a difference in their community.
Thank you to all those who participated in this nomination. We continue to be inspired by your work.

2022 Winner: Steve Moertel
Steve is our winner for 2022! Steve has been active in the volunteer community within the Twin Cities for the last 2 years and strives to support his neighbors wherever he can. In addition to his volunteer work, Steve owns his own business called DrawByYou, which supports the conversation about ending the stigma around mental health.
“I am beyond honored to be recognized by the BK Law Group for their Community Volunteer Nomination. My work developing Draw LLC has allowed me opportunities to build community and support nonprofits that make a real difference in the lives of people who need it most. I look forward to pursuing my dreams with the support of those in our community.
I want to thank LynLake Brewery, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness. These organizations and their staff have all helped support Draw LLC and myself as we work to make a difference in our communities, influence change in Minnesota and beyond, and ultimately follow my dreams of changing the world through creative expression by people of all ages, backgrounds, and artistic abilities.”
