Community Matters




We invest in our communities

Committing to making them better places to live, work, and play.

The heart of MAX is our communities. The people we serve are not just customers; they are our families, friends, and neighbors. We realize every day is an opportunity to invest in our communities, and we work hard to help them thrive.

MAX Gives on Giving Tuesday

We care about helping neighbors and local organizations grow and thrive. That's why we we give back each year through our community giving program. Through community giving, we are able to recognize organizations doing good work and making a positive impact for so many by providing monetary donations, service hours, and non-profit board leadership.
