Mueller Cares

At Mueller, we believe in supporting and giving back to organizations in the communities we live and work in.

Our contributions are not just through individual and corporate donations, but by volunteering time, Board involvement, and Board leadership. From building a home for a deserving and needy family through Habitat for Humanity, to raising money by participating in 5ks, to volunteering at a food pantry; Mueller employees know they are contributing where it is needed most.

Mueller Employees' Charities of Choice

Make a Wish® Illinois grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. We have supported their annual 5K Run for Wishes but wanted to deepen our level of involvement and giving. Partnering with a long term client, we looked for a fundraising vehicle that would engage employees from both companies to benefit a deserving charity, give back to our local community, and provide a fun and enjoyable event for all the participants and supporters. The result was a friendly bowling and fundraising event called Bowling for Wishes. This event raised over $60,000 in its inaugural year and we were able to fulfill the wishes of 10 deserving children. The following year with the efforts of an additional client  and its employees we doubled the amount of funds raised.

Recognizing that food insecurity was a problem in the Greater Elgin area, Food For Greater Elgin was created to provide a client-choice food distribution facility. Food For Greater Elgin is providing food assistance to 1,250 families, feeding 6,000 individuals in those households, of whom nearly half are children. Mueller employees volunteer their time weekly at the food pantry; collect donations on jean days, and further support annual fund raising events such as Palette to Palate.
