Help, Hope, Change Award
MSC’s Help, Hope, Change Award (HHC Award) celebrates a community leader or corporation that exemplifies the mission of MSC to provide pathways out of poverty for our neighbors. The award is presented annually at the MSC Helps Luncheon in October. The inaugural award was presented in 2019.
