Article by Dan Perkins, MCC Board Members and Communications Specialist
The MCC Board has launched a new initiative designed to provide financial assistance to MCC Members whenever situations of need or opportunity arise.
The idea was generated by news of a series of tragedy befalling a former MCC Board member. “We recognize we have an obligation to help our members Stand Up and Stand Tall whenever challenges or special situations come their way,” said Edwin Walker, president of the Maywood Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Walker had shared news of the unfortunate events during the April MCC Board Meeting. Board Members responded by agreeing to establish a processing for making donations to aid MCC Members whenever needful situations present themselves. Generous members of the MCC Board agreed to have the donations flow through what they have labeled “The MCC Fund.”
The MCC Fund will be used to raise money for specific needs, and each need will be addressed through a specific campaign. “At some point in the future, a general campaign might be launched to ensure MCC has sufficient funds on hand to address unexpected situations in the future,” said Mr. Walker.
The first funding campaign is aimed at helping a former MCC Board Member whom, for the present time, is being referred to as “One Kool Kat.” The identity of “One Kool Kat” will remain a mystery in order to provide the recipient with an unexpected, but positive surprise.
“Our First Fund Recipient, served the MCC Board with distinction for many years, and is most deserving of the Chamber’s support after experiencing a string of unfortunate setbacks to both his family and business,” said Mr. Walker. “We believe the generosity of our Board Members, and others, will make a welcomed and positive difference for the recipient,” Walker added.
Anyone can contribute to the fund, and the MCC Board will be pleased to acknowledge each contribution and report on how it was used to help Our Members and Community Stand Tall and Stand for Good.
