MCA Celebrates 50th

Anniversary; Achievement

Awards Banquet Date


   Nominations for recipients are now being accepted.

On Thursday, November 10, 2016, at 7:00 p.m., MCA will celebrate 50 years of service to the community, and honor recipients of the 2016 Community Achievement Awards.  The banquet will be held at the Battle House Hotel, 26 N. Royal Street, Mobile, Alabama.

The awards banquet began in 2014, as a fundraiser to supplement our non-designated funds, which are used to assist individuals and families whose emergency need, may be beyond the scope of structured grants.   The type of help requested include, victims who have been displaced by fire or other perils; persons who may need medications; food; rent or mortgage assistance; as well as those who seek assistance for burial expenses.  These emergencies create a need for immediate attention, thus giving credence to our motto: “Mobile Community Action, Inc.  Helping People, Changing Lives.”

The MCA Community Achievement Award recognizes and thanks those in Mobile and Washington Counties who make extraordinary contributions to the community.  A candidate can be nominated based on the following categories:   Civic Affairs, Law Enforcement, Healthcare, Education, Philanthropy, Sports, Youth and/or Elderly Support, and Religion.

Only completed nomination forms will be considered.   The deadline date for submission of a nominee is Friday, August 26, 2016.  All nominations will be reviewed by a non-partisan committee and selected nominees will be notified by September 15, 2016. Click here to download nomination form

A nomination form can be submitted by fax (251) 457-5758, email, or mail:  Mobile Community Action, ATTN: 2016 Awards Banquet, P. O. Box 10159. Mobile, Alabama 36610.
