The MAC and its chiropractic members across the state of Michigan express sympathy for the devastation in the #MidlandStrong community. We are asking for participation in the National #ChiroCares2020 Giving Back Day to continue throughout the month of May and we encourage you to direct your donations to help those in most need in Midland:
It is IMPORTANT that anyone who has had damage from the flood goes to www.reliefmidland.org to fill out the damage survey located about ¾ of the way down the page. You will see a blue button. This survey is used to get those affected into the system so help can be provided by FEMA as well as from other entities that are collecting donations.

Volunteer to Work at the MAC Tent
We will be asking for volunteers to work at a MAC tent to give chiropractic relief to workers on the ground doing clean up, electrical, water heater installs, etc who desperately need our help. We will be sending out a volunteer form for anyone interested in working in shifts over the coming weeks. More information on this opportunity will be coming soon!
National ChiroCares Giving Back Day is May 19th!
Michigan Chiropractors: Donate to Your Local Food Bank Through Feeding America, Get Your Patients Involved – Resources Available!
We want to tell you about an exciting new national effort spearheaded by the MAC, partnering with ChiroCongress and the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) – the first annual National ChiroCares Giving Back Day. On May 19th, chiropractic state associations across the nation – and their members – will organize and participate in different events that give back to their local communities during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The MAC is organizing a virtual food drive through Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, and we are asking for your help!
National ChiroCares Giving Back Day not only symbolizes the power of positivity within the chiropractic profession, but it also further exemplifies the commitment chiropractors demonstrate as healthcare providers and pillars of their communities, ready and willing to help those who are in need. Let’s work together to strengthen our communities, enhance the quality of life for those who are in need, and do our part to give back to the communities that we serve.
