To promote safety, security, and strength–through donation, service, and education–for children and families who need it most within our community.


Established in October of 2022, MCA Cares is the community outreach branch of Millard Children’s Academy. Justin Shapland, the Business Manager of MCA, spearheads this operation by working closely with local nonprofits by setting up food drives, donation drives, and volunteer programs for the employees–and willing families–to participate in.


The overall goal of MCA Cares is to work within the community to provide aid to those needing it most. Most nonprofits that we choose to partner with are ones that benefit children first and foremost; we strive to share our love for children within and without our walls. Some of the local nonprofits that we have worked with are Food Bank for the Heartland and Project Harmony, providing food, comfort, and support to those suffering from food scarcity or victims of abuse.

As MCA Cares continues to grow, we look forward to extending our reach across the metro and participating with more and more nonprofits as we seek to show our support for all the children that need our help. If you have any suggestions of potential nonprofits to work with, or are interested in volunteering with us, please contact Justin at
