Doing our part in our local communities
As a family-owned company, Brose takes its role in the community seriously. It has always been important to us to help those who face difficult situations. We provide consistent support through regular contributions to many charitable organizations throughout the year. Brose also shows support for those in need in our local community through our yearly contribution to the Adopt-A-Family program. In addition to these activities, we build the skills of our future generations through our active participation in programs such as FIRST Robotics and Formula SAE.
Rhonda Walker Foundation
The Rhonda Walker Foundation is a non-profit organization with a strong mission to “empower inner-city teen girls towards becoming strong, confident, successful, and moral future leaders”. Brose has been a strong partner of the organization for years as part of our efforts to support community initiatives. Proceeds from the Give and Get Fit Marathon go towards the Rhonda Walker Foundation's award-winning Girls into Women Program. This includes college prep, career and personal development mentoring, health and wellness, and community outreach. Each year, Brose pays for employee registration to support the cause.
PanCan Purple Stride Michigan Walk
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is a charity dedicated to pancreatic cancer research and support. Through PanCan Purple Stride Brose employees participate in support of those who have been impacted by this cancer, whether it be with a friend/family member or a personal battle. Each year, Brose pays for employee registration to support the cause.
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
Each year our Michigan plant locations, support the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Employees take part in a “Pink Out” by wearing pink clothing to raise funds for breast cancer research. Our plant teams then participate in a race through downtown Detroit to celebrate their efforts and show support for the cause.
Oakland Family Services
Brose North America actively supports Oakland Family Services (OFS), a longstanding private nonprofit organization with a century-long commitment to community well-being through prevention, education, and treatment programs. At a fundraising event in May 2023, The Building Brighter Futures Breakfast, the Brose team was moved by the impactful success stories shared. One notable initiative is the Adopt-A-Family program, which provides essential support to disadvantaged families facing financial challenges by offering holiday gifts every year. Brose continues its support by sponsoring families through Adopt-A-Family, highlighting the enduring impact of OFS in fostering resilience within the community.
Habitat for Humanity
In October 2017, Brose Tuscaloosa provided support to their local Habitat for Humanity chapter to build homes for families in need. It was a fantastic event and a great opportunity for Brose, alongside other businesses in the area, to demonstrate its commitment to the local community. These events are not only helping departments to build a better work relationship, but are also supporting the local community.
Each year, Brose North America and New Boston team members gather to clean up their corresponding roads, located less than a mile away from the plant’s campus. This initiative not only strengthens the team’s bond, but it also creates a cleaner and greener world, one mile at a time.
