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 monies for the privilege of wearing blue jeans or other casual attire on Fridays.
Our spotlight charity for July is Children’s Miracle Network
More than 10 million kids enter a children’s hospital like Beaumont Children’s (in Michigan) across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Children’s Miracle Network raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals, 14 of which are in Canada.Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and research. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. Each day, over 4,900 children will receive medical treatment for various diseases, sickness and injuries at Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals across Canada. These children’s hospitals depend on financial support to help fund critical priorities such as: Mental Health, Pediatric Health Research, Emergency and Urgent Care, Healthy Living, Cancer and Child Life Programs.
