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:
|Coats for Kids||Purchase up to 75 coats for elementary school-aged children in cold months of the year.|
|Read to Success||Purchase over 1,500 books annually via Scholastic Literacy and distribute to needy children.|
|Read and Feed||Hold session for parents and kids to read books from Read to Succeed.|
