KANSAS CITY, Mo. — H&R Block celebrated one of its co-founders on what would have been his 100th birthday.

Henry Bloch made a huge impact on the entire metro as both a businessman and a philanthropist. His legacy continues to do so.

H&R Block has 100 volunteer teams giving back to local nonprofits this month in Bloch’s honor. The company made sure to allow employees to volunteer during the summer when organizations usually see a drop in help.

These are some of the nonprofits that have benefited from the volunteers:

  • American Red Cross
  • Bishop Sullivan Center
  • City Union Mission
  • Giving the Basics
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • HappyBottoms
  • Kansas City Dream Center
  • Operation Breakthrough
  • Operation Gratitude
  • Veterans Community Project

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas also proclaimed Saturday, July 30, “Make Every Block Better Day” in Bloch’s honor.
