“Service to the City of Albion, a community that has supported us from the very beginning, has always been a core value of CCI,” said Bill Dobbins, CEO of CCI. “Now, with all of our philanthropic and community service activities under the Caster Cares umbrella, we’ll be better able to serve the City and people of Albion at this important juncture in its history. After years of decline, Albion is back; growing and prospering with new energy and life.”
Initiatives already underway include:
Caster Cares is giving back to the people and City of Albion through participation in food drives, toy drives, and other civic activities.
Caster Cares is supporting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education through the Albion Innovation Hub, a space for high school robotics teams from throughout the region to design, build and test robots.
Caster Cares is helping Albion’s business community grow with a variety of programs and services, including marketing support for small businesses through its own marketing department.
“We believe in giving back to the community that has always supported us and where our employees and their families live,” said Dobbins. “We’ve always encouraged our employees to be active in our community, and we’ve always supported the continued growth of Albion. Caster Cares will allow us to better coordinate our philanthropic and civic activities.”
