Roto-Mix President Mike Hilderbrand is participating in the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s fundraiser, MDA Lock-Up.
Here’s more information:
I need your help. I am going back to jail again for third consecutive year for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. While it’s not a real jail, it’s even more important as I’m raising bail to help children and adults with muscle disease in my community who are supported by the vital work of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). I might not be able to rely on good behavior to get out so that’s why I need your help – I need you to donate to my bail!
This year, our objective at Roto-Mix is to raise $1,600 for MDA which will cover the cost of sending two deserving kids to MDA summer camp.
Your tax-deductible donation to MDA to spring me from jail is personal choice – no pressure from me at all. But as in prior years, I will personally match dollar for dollar all contributions received from Roto-Mix employees!!
I only have until June 4th to raise my bail. Every dollar helps. Please help. Just click on the donation button to make a secure donation – I know that together we’ll Make a Muscle and Make a Difference in the fight against muscle disease.
On behalf of the MDA kids and Roto-Mix, THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
Mike Hilderbrand, President
We just wanted to remind everyone that we’re still collecting tabs off of aluminum cans. Once the tabs are collected, the Ronald McDonald House will donate money to children who need surgery.
Check out The Hutchinson News for a short story about it here.

Imagine being able to help children with life-threatening medical conditions receive the surgeries they need to survive. The public can help those children by simply collecting tabs off of aluminum cans like pop cans.
Sheila Law, the purchasing receiving clerk at Roto-Mix, is collecting the tabs through May 2013. The Ronald McDonald House will weigh the tabs then and distribute money to children’s families for the surgeries.
It’s a cause that hits home for Law. Her niece in Texas has had several open-heart surgeries and will require more surgeries in the future. The money raised by the tabs will benefit Law’s niece and other children, including a child in Wichita.
“What a good cause – it helps them get the surgeries they need. They’re life-saving surgeries,” she said. “The more we collect, the more we can help out.”
The tabs are small and collecting them is easy and does not take up a lot of space, Law said.
The Ronald McDonald House is a charity that provides rooms for families whose children are hospitalized and operates in 57 countries.
Law said she’s already received a good response from family and friends. People can drop off their tabs from pop cans, beer cans or energy drinks at Roto-Mix in Dodge City, 2205 E. Wyatt Earp. The tabs can also be mailed to Roto-Mix.
People can also drop off their tabs at Melmans Tools, 300 W. McArtor Road or 1011 Kelley Ave. in Dodge City.
Law said she’s also willing to pick up tabs in the Dodge City area. To schedule a pick up, e-mail Law at firstname.lastname@example.org.
From Brady Moy, Roto-Mix Northeast Regional Manager:
Roto-Mix, in conjunction with Valley Ag & Turf, was proud to sponsor a charity shooting event benefiting Future Farmers of America in Pennsylvania.
In all we had more than 60 people participate in sporting clays at Seven Springs Resort, just east of Pittsburgh.
The participants had a good time supporting a great organization, and a total of 16 teams participated.
