Corporate Citizenship:Building Great CommunitiesWhere We Live and Work.

HSC has been part of the Great Lakes Bay Region community for over 60 years. Our employees live and work here. So, every day, every year, we take action to improve the quality of life for all our neighbors.

Contributions and Volunteerism

HSC Connects

HSC collaborated with the United Way and Salesforce to introduce Salesforce’s Philanthropy Cloud to HSC employees. HSC Connects (Philanthropy Cloud) allows employees to sign up for HSC volunteer events, keep track of their community outreach hours and see the positive impact HSC has in the community.

Our Corporate Citizenship leadership team members and ambassadors manage company efforts, direct funding decisions, lead local community projects and advance education in Saginaw, Midland, Bay and Gratiot counties. Employees serve on several boards, donate significant time and raise money to support more than one hundred nonprofit and community programs.

Schools, government units and local groups with 501(c)(3) designation may apply for grants through the Bay Area Community Foundation, Midland Area Community Foundation or Saginaw Community Foundation.
