At the 2017 MBK Leadership Retreat, leaders from the MBK home office and each of the 22 communities worked together on a volunteer activity to support Together We Rise. Dedicating to transforming the way kids experience foster care, Together We Rise is a non-profit organization that brings resources to foster youth and educates volunteers about the foster care system.

The MBK team worked together to personalize duffel bags that will be given to children entering foster care, and to build bicycles and skateboards for children in foster care.

The Commons at Dallas Ranch community in Antioch, California, hosted "Rocking for a Cure," a cancer awareness event for cancer survivors organized in conjunction with the American Cancer Society and Eastbay Hospice.

Attendees included residents, family members, and the Eastbay community, who all told their cancer survival stories. Attendees who had lost loved ones to cancer made luminarias (small paper lanterns) in support of their loved ones.

The luminarias were dedicated with everyone standing up to sing "Amazing Grace."
