Making the Most of 2021 in the Media: D+P’s Year in Review

By Alyssa Zinar

While 2021 was not exactly the return to normalcy we all had hoped for, clients of Devine + Partners  certainly made the most of the 365 days this year. They’ve celebrated moments of success, growth and impact and showcased some of the most wonderful parts of our community.   

Our team of public relations specialists has had the pleasure of refining and sharing these stories with media, ranging from international and national news outlets, television and radio stations and community papers, so that the good news and great work of our client could be recognized. 

Take a look back at a sampling of stories we helped share for our clients in 2021.
