2023 Winter Conference

The 2023 Winter Conference

Michigan Aggregates Association is Teaming up with the United States Marine Corp. Reserve

In the spirt of the Holiday season, the Michigan Aggregates Association (MAA) has once again partnered with the US Marine Corps Reserve and the Toys for Tots program to help reach their primary goal of delivering a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters.  By donating a new toy at Christmas, MAA will assist children in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens.

This is the eigth year MAA has designated Toys for Tots as the association holiday charity. Participants include aggregate producers along with the equipment manufacturers and service providers (responsible for the production and delivery of essential raw materials used in our homes, buildings, roads, bridges and public works projects).  During the 2023 Michigan Aggregates Association Winter Conference a message of hope will be sent by providing an unwrapped toy during their Winter Conference.

During the holiday season it is a nice change of pace to work collectively to make the holiday magical for those less fortunate, Doug Needham, Executive Director of MAA and organizer of MAAs Toys for Tots drive, explained. It is really amazing that something as simple as buying gifts for children can bring so much cheer into the office.

The official presentation of toys to the US Marine Corps will take place November 30, 23 at 8:00pm at Amway Grand Plaza located in Grand Rapids Michigan.

To help with the collection of toys, MAA has a number of donation boxes ready to be deployed to member companies.  If you would like a box for your office, please contact the MAA office and make arrangements for delivery.
