In the Community

Paying it forward and helping the children in our community.

in the community

In 2004, MHA CEO Michael Herrera created M2H Charities in memory of his father, the late Fred Herrera, to support needy school-aged children.

The charity was founded on the simple belief of “paying it forward” through the allocation of resources and funds to change children’s lives in a positive way.

What started out as simply purchasing school supplies at the beginning of each school year has expanded to ten different programs.

M2H Charities, a 501(c)(3) organization (Tax ID 46-2661399), efficiently uses it donations and ensures close to 100% of contributions go to the children. A list of our major charitable programs is as follows:

Service Description
