Our Community

Community brings people together and motivates us to develop strong relationships with our clients, employees, and suppliers. Our associates give over 1,300 hours of work time each year to volunteer with community organizations, as well as organizing fundraising efforts to support these causes.

Associates participate in blood drives twice a year to help save and sustain lives in our community. Partnering with MBC allows us to work together to participate in delivering life-saving supplies and services to area hospitals and healthcare partners around the world.

Our associates have a great passion for helping solve the hunger problem in our community. By partnering with Second Harvest Heartland, we help close the missing meal gap through donated time and funds to give our fellow citizens the hope they need.

Over 6,000 homeless youth in Minnesota seek emergency shelter and short-term housing on any given night. Avenues For Homeless Youth strives to provide for these needs, and we have stepped up to support their efforts. From providing services such as gift wrapping during the holiday season, to greeting donors and organizing donation drives, our associates take great pride in lending a helping hand.

Since 2014 we have hosted an annual Bands for the Brave event, an event organized by our own associates that helps to raise money to support our Veterans. To date we have raised over $100,000 through donations and sponsorships, which helps put an end to veteran suicide, assisting with reintegration into the civilian world, providing care packages to deployed troops, welcoming home injured veterans, and upgrading homes to meet the needs of our injured heroes.
