From our company's founding to this day, local involvement remains an essential part of the way we do business. Through hands-on community involvement, charitable giving, and board leadership with several nonprofits, MJS Packaging has approached corporate citizenship by taking meaningful action in the markets we serve.

Ronald McDonald House Charities
A Ronald McDonald House is a "home-away-from-home" for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. The network of houses has provided thousands of families and children with desperately needed stability at a time when serious illness or injury has turned their world upside down. MJS Packaging is proud to be a lead partner with the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit in their expansion campaign, and to be a sponsor at the 2015 Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Golf Classic.

Michigan State University
A top global university, Michigan State University has been “advancing the common good with uncommon will for more than 160 years.” This same dedication resulted in the opening of the Food Processing and Innovation Center (FPIC) in 2018. The center serves as Michigan’s leading independent commercial food research facility with the capabilities to develop, process and package products in-house. MJS Packaging is a proud sponsor of the FPIC, providing funding for filling equipment. In addition, our company President, David Lubin, serves on the FPIC’s Advisory Board.

Wayne State University
Located in the heart of Detroit, Michigan, Wayne State University has taken its place as a nationally recognized metropolitan research institution. And over the years, MJS Packaging has developed a long-standing relationship with the university. This relationship has taken many forms, where our contributions have included:
- The ongoing maintenance of the Max Jacob House, which was originally built by our founder and still stands as a historical home on campus used as a residence for the University's President.
- An endowment by Elaine Jacob, third generation family member and WSU alumna, which allowed WSU to create a top venue for exhibitions of important local, national and international contemporary art.
- The M Jacob & Sons Company and Employee Sponsored Endowed Scholarship in Industrial Design in the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts.
