  • MH Equipment Provides Big Assist For Salvation Army Disaster Efforts for Central Illinois

    $250,000 Donation from MH Equipment/His First Foundation to be Utilized for Disaster Victims  

    The Salvation Army has been hard at work aiding victims in the aftermath of the devastating tornadoes that swept through central Illinois in November, and a local company is stepping forward in a big way to aid the recovery of victims.

    “We are overwhelmed by the support of MH Equipment in assisting The Salvation Army with recovery efforts,” said Major Evie Diaz, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army Heartland Division. “We have hired a case manager to assist victims with getting back on their feet, and this very generous donation will lead the effort,” said Diaz.

    MH Equipment CEO John Wieland made the donation on behalf of the employees of the company and shared their impetus for such a large gift. “Our hearts go out to those hurting from the November tornadoes, and the employees at MH Equipment want to help make a difference,” said Wieland. “Our foundation supports many areas of service and one area is to support non-denominational organizations whose mission is to share the love of Jesus Christ as well as meeting the physical needs of people in His Name. I can’t think of a better organization than The Salvation Army to partner with for this purpose,” said Wieland.

    The Salvation Army intends to have staff designated to help with those affected by the tornadoes as long as is necessary, and will begin its long-term case work in January.  The funds from MH Equipment and His First Foundation will be used to provide generous, non-prescriptive help to families at The Salvation Army’s discretion.

    “MH Equipment and His First Foundation supports many worthwhile endeavors and we wanted central Illinois to know of their unselfish giving to those in need, whether here or in other areas of the country,” said Diaz.

    For more information on the gift, or The Salvation Army’s disaster efforts, contact Rich Draeger with the Salvation Army at (309) 655-1348 or Captain Katherine Clausell at (309) 655-7220.

  • Shoeboxes Full of Fun for Kids Less Fortunate

    MH Equipment employees from across the Midwest generously donated to Operation Christmas Child, an annual drive sponsored by the charity Samaritan’s Purse. Shoeboxes filled of both fun and practical items for young people were gathered to be taken to children in less fortunate countries – who might not otherwise receive a gift at Christmas.

    John Wieland, CEO announced that there was a total of 856 boxes, an increase of 206 boxes over last year.  The vast majority of MH branches increased their total from last year with a few branches actually doubling their total!

    A feature that many are looking forward to is a code on the box that allows a donation to be tracked to its final destination.  “I’m excited to track where my box ends up, it’s for a little girl.”, said Accountant Barb Blair

    All of MH is looking forward to finding out where their box ended up.  Also new this year, Uncle Si, of Duck Dynasty fame is a spokesperson for Operation Christmas Child. Take a look at his fun video explaining why he is involved.

    Operation Christmas Child is operated by Samaritan’s Purse, headquartered in Boon, North Carolina. Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have received boxes from Operation Christmas Child. After they leave MH Equipment branches, they will be shipped to processing centers located in Atlanta; Charlotte; Boone, NC; Denver; Honolulu; Minneapolis; Orange County, California; and the Dallas/Fort Worth area where they will be inspected and prepared for shipment overseas.

  • Bowling Green welcomes new Branch Manager

    MH Equipment is excited to announce that Jim Faith has been promoted from Branch Manager, Louisville, KY to Branch Manager, Louisville and Bowling Green, KY.

    Jim will split his time between Louisville, where he has served as the Branch Manager for 2 years, and Bowling Green. With Jim’s work ethic and conscious efforts to lead by example in his 2 years in Louisville, he has helped to set Louisville on an intentional path to becoming a major player in that market, and we expect that he will bring those same qualities to Bowling Green as he begins to impact that Branch Operation.

    Jim will be transitioning into his added responsibilities over the next couple of months.  With his experience, leadership and knowledge, I am confident that he will provide excellent direction for both Branch Operations.

    Please take a moment to congratulate Jim in his new assignment with MH Equipment!
