Employees of Carhartt, an American-based clothing company founded in 1889 that focuses on making work clothes, has adopted the Macomb-Oakland Regional Center, Inc., as its charity to receive funds raised in the Carhartt vs. Red Wings Alumni game.
The 10th Anniversary MORC Hockey Game will be at 7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 21, at the Dearborn Ice Skating Center.
This game for MORC will be extra special because it is part of Carhartt’s 125-year Anniversary Celebration.
Over the last 13 years Carhartt has provided thousands of people with disabilities with food, new winter coats and clothing, furniture and appliances, van repair and emergency help. Each year, Carhartt adopts several hundred people for its “Carhartt Christmas.”
Thank you to all the MORC staff, local businesses and community members who volunteer to help with Carhartt donations throughout the year and on Christmas.MORC is the state's largest nonprofit agency with offices in Clinton Township and Auburn Hills and provides homes in the community with 24/7 care for those with developmental disabilities or mental illness.
