Binson's supports community
CENTER LINE, Mich. - Binson's Home Health Care Centers lent a hand to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in May, raising $38,000 to send kids to camp.
"The community supports you, you should support your community," said Jim Binson, director of operations.
The money, raised during a $100-a-head-dinner hosted at the home of Binson's President and CEO James Binson, will be used to send 58 children to Camp Cavell, where the MDA holds a week-long summer camp.
This is the 30th year Binson's has supported the MDA, support that extends beyond money. Ten to 15 employees will participate in the camp, working with kids, providing parts and repairing equipment.
"My brother Bob cooks, and this year, my son went for a day," said Binson. "The staff looks forward to it every year."
In addition to supporting the MDA, the company works with several other organizations, including a local cancer institute, The American Diabetes Association and the American Lung Association. Binson's also helps people on an individual basis. In June, the provider donated materials and labor to build a $5,000 wheelchair ramp for a WWII veteran whose aluminum ramp had been stolen for scrap metal.
