Brasscraft Manufacturing Company – Working to Make Our Community a Better Place
Tuesday, December 19, 2017
NOVI, MI – As part of a longstanding tradition, Brasscraft Manufacturing Company employees give their time, talent and resources to community organizations all year round.
This year, several events were held to gather donations and to sponsor various charities. Events like our annual bake sales, silent auctions and tailgate parties bring together employees for fun – and more importantly – for the causes close to our hearts.
“Making an impact in our community is important to our team. We are the change agents within our community,” said Josh Jaime, Brasscraft’s Community Outreach Chairman. “We’re helping organizations that make our communities better for us all.”
Employees participate in activities with many, many charities including COTS, Haven, Make A Wish, Habitat for Humanity and the Salvation Army, to name a few.
Here are a few highlights from some of our events:
With the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), we participated in the annual JDRF One Walk. In conjunction with our Masco foundation were able to donate a check for $25,000. And we were blessed with a visit from local ambassador, James, who at a very young age inspired us all.
For the 10th consecutive year, Brasscraft Mfg. Novi employees participated in the Detroit Free Press / Chemical Bank Marathon event as Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Team in Training team members. With multiple fundraising events held by the Brasscraft team, along with a grant presented by Masco, we raised more than $35,500 for our LLS partners. Over the course of our 10 year partnership, the Brasscraft team has raise close to $400,000 for this cause. The funds go directly to life saving efforts for blood cancer patients. GO TEAM!
Supporting our veterans is a passion at Brasscraft Mfg. Co, as we have several veterans on our team. We celebrate with a solom ceremy at our headquarters followed by a visit to Piquette Square. Piquette Square is a 150-unit apartment project in Detroit to house and care for homeless veterans. Piquette Square offers comprehensive support services to help the veterans develop self-sufficiency and reintegrate into the community. Throughout the month of November employees donate needed items (i.e. toiletries, socks, etc.) and prepare welcome kits for the veteran residents.
Brasscraft Mfg. Co. is proud of the support its employees and the company provide to our community. It’s about people. It’s about finding ways to give back all year long.
