Honoring Military Personnel, Veterans and their Families

The McCanns support various causes that are important to their family, including a special cause deeply rooted in their family's history: veterans.

Annette and Michael McCann Charitable Fund
Est. 2022 / Donor Advised Fund


Annette and Michael McCann, long-time residents of Stark County and the founders of McCann Plastics, established a Donor Advised Fund through Stark Community Foundation to deepen their philanthropic efforts and instill in their children the value of making a positive impact. Each year, the McCanns actively support various causes that are important to their family, including a special cause deeply rooted in their family’s history: veterans. Annette’s father was an Army Air Force pilot during World War II, transporting troops and supplies across the globe. Annette and Michael have always had an appreciation and respect for the sacrifices of our military, and their children do too.

In 2023, their family supported Serving Area Military and Veterans (SAM Center), a local nonprofit providing support to active-duty military personnel, veterans and their families in Stark County. With the McCanns’ and community members’ support, the SAM Center expanded its reach by opening a second location in Canal Fulton to complement its original location in Massillon. From mental health support and benefits assistance to food and lodging kits, the SAM Center assists over 700 veterans’ families annually to ensure they receive the care, compassion and recognition they rightfully deserve.
