MTA 2023 We Care

Bringing Holiday Cheer to Children Across America

Every year since 1996, MillerKnoll and the Boys & Girls Club of America join forces for the We Care holiday event. More than 6,000 children across North America attend We Care events with volunteers from Herman Miller, dealers, suppliers, and leading architecture and design firms.

We Care gives children the opportunity to create holiday gifts for family, teachers, and friends at a variety of craft stations designed, supplied and facilitated by our local Architectural & Design firms. For some children, it is the only way they can provide gifts for their loved ones. In addition to crafts, there is Santa, gift-wrapping, music, food, and other activities for the children’s enjoyment.
