At MBC we’re dedicated to making a positive impact in our communities by helping individuals and families in need. We do this through our commitment to help support charities that make a huge impact in the lives of many throughout our Michigan communities. One of the ways we raise money is with Friday Casual Days. Every month MBC employees have the opportunity to pay $20 for the privilege of wearing blue jeans or other casual attire on Fridays.
Our spotlight charity for January is Hype Athletics.org. The Mission of the HYPE Athletics Community is to create and strengthen infrastructures that support the positive development of Wayne County youth through athletic participation and competition, educational tutoring and literacy development, and social awareness including mentoring, counseling, life skills training and substance abuse education and prevention.
Established in 2001, HYPE focused on providing communities with drug-free, violent-free and diverse athletic events and programs for kids and adults. Today HYPE Athletics Community is a deep-rooted, nonprofit community based organization that partners with federal, state and local agencies, corporations, foundations and leaders to provide services and programs. Support is received through our many community campaigns such as Feed Detroit, Tutor Challenge, Youth and Adult Athletic Programs, Fitness and Health Services and Education with ACT / SAT Support, Career and Leadership Development, Mentoring, Life Skills, Drug Prevention, Homework Assistance, Reading and Math Programs, Teach and Feed Green House Project and much more.
