Community Mental Health employees make a quarterly donation to non-profit organizations through their "Casual for a Cause" initiative. Those employees are allowed to dress casually every other Friday in exchange for a $3 donation to the fund. Former recipients have included the Sanilac County Humane Society, Eva's Place, CPS Project Blessing, Department of Human Services Holiday Project, Thumbs' Up for Kids, United Hospice Service and the Human Development Commission.
