At MixBin one of our core values is to give back to our community. Being located in the Trenton/Hamilton area we look for the opportunity to help local community organizations. MixBin is proud to support some amazing organizations that positively impact the community in many different ways.
Ryans Quest: http://www.ryansquest.org
Ryans Quest began as a local foundation with a mission to increase awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and has since joined the Duchenne Alliance to accelerate DMD research and care. Ryan's Quest allocates its funds to research that will one day find a cure or treatment for this disease. The foundation was founded in Hamilton, NJ by Maria and David Schultz, the parents of Ryan Schultz two months after their son was diagnosed with DMD. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. DMD can begin to effect the muscles at age 3 and by teenage years it will begin to affect the heart and respiratory muscles. We donate to Ryan's Quest hoping to end this horrible disease. As we move through 2017 and into 2018 we plan on getting more involved with the foundation.
The Bromley Center: http://www.cyobromley.org
The Bromley Center, a head start program, has developed and continues programs and activities which are essential for low & moderate income residents of Hamilton Township. The center puts on various programs for residents of all ages to enjoy. Being across the street from the MixBin Hamilton office, we find giving to the center is a great way to positively impact our community. In this article, Cory Zeitzer, MixBin CEO, talks about how he "hope[s] to continue doing donations to the Bromley Center for the rest of the year and for many years to come,"
Bike MS: http://www.bikems.org
MixBin employee Alan Nicholls is an avid cyclist and has been with the company for 4 years. Alan participates in the Bike MS ride for his niece and good friend, both of whom are living with and fighting MS every day. MixBin employee Saul Lurie, also an avid cyclist joined the company 1 year ago and joined the cause with Alan. Saul rides for his friend's mother, who has been confined to a wheelchair due to MS. By riding and fundraising we are raising awareness about what MS is and how it affects the people close to us. Alan Nicholls talks about those who inspire him to ride "[Mike} lives every day with MS, BUT does not slow down. Hoping he can ride with us this year". MS is an auto-immune disease that can cause fatigue, numbness, blindness, and paralysis among many other symptoms. MixBin employees will ride 100 miles from Cherry Hill to Ocean City, NJ with the hope to find treatment and a cure to MS.
