9/11 Dedication Ceremony
A memorial sculpture was unveiled on the MCC Campus on the occasion of the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City.
The sculpture is an artifact from the destroyed buildings of the World Trade Center. MCC was the recipient of this gift from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. It stands in the courtyard area in front of MCC's Prahl Community Center.
This memorial honors those who died in the 9/11 attacks in 2001 and serves as a sign of appreciation of all of the men and women of the police, fire, EMTs, and all first responders who rush toward danger every day all across the United States.
Japanese Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Disasters
The devastating March 2010 earthquake in Japan has left that nation in a state of shock and tragedy.
Roughly 530,000 people are surviving without basics such as shelter, food, water and medical supplies. In the aftermath of the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and terrifying tsunami many international relief groups are working to relieve suffering in the increasingly dire situation.
MCC Cares is suggesting that for those who are able, and would like to do something to assist, please contact the American Red Cross or AmeriCares, a non-profit relief organization that saves lives and restores health in response to natural disasters, conflict, and chronic poverty.
Haiti Relief Efforts
Mott Community Collegeexpresses its sincere concern for the people of Haiti as they struggle to recover from the devastating effects of the January 12, 2009 earthquake. When a natural disaster such as this occurs, an immediate response from faculty, staff and students is to ask, "What can I do to help?"

What You Can Do
Through The Foundation for Mott Community College, donors can contribute to The Haiti Fund to help with long-term rebuilding efforts in Haiti. To date over $2200 has been donated to the fund. Thank you to all those who have contributed!
MCC hosted five guest students from Haiti who are studying music theory and performance and we have numerous other employees who are Haitian-born or have family in the affected area. Because of our personal connection to Haiti it was important for us to establis a coordinated relief effort to help the people of Haiti rebuild. Our guest students were featured on a local news story from WEYI Channel 25 - "Haitian music teachers studying in Flint cope with quake".
During December 2010, Mott Community College partnered with Baker College of Flint, Kettering University and the University of Michigan-Flint in the annual launch of the College Town Holiday Food Drive. Proceeds benefited the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.
The four institutions engaged in a friendly competition to see which school can donate the most money and items to the food bank. This is the fourth year that MCC has participated in the Holiday Food Drive competition.
The Public Safety Department at Mott Community College coordinated MCC's effort again this year.
MCC raised over 21,000 pounds of food last year -- a great contribution -- but the winner of last year's competition, Baker College of Flint, raised over 24,000 pounds. The school raising the most food and funding will receive a traveling trophy that will be handed off to next year's winner. Suggested food drive items were non-perishable foods such as canned goods, baking mixes, pastas, sauces, cereals and spices. Personal care products such as shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste and toilet paper were also accepted
For more information about the Holiday Food Drive at MCC, call the Department of Public Safety (810) 762-0222.
For the month of November 2010 the Technology Division hosted a Toy Drive for a local charity. Together the faculty, staff, and students collectively contributed over $800 in toys,
diapers, and gift wrap toCarriage Town Ministries.
Many thanks to all those that supported this effort and to the Technology Club for their assistance and support.
