2016 IDA Humanitarian of the Year

Enriching the lives of others has been a passion of Mike McAlear, Owner of Service Spring Corporation (SSC). Recognizing his passion, the International Door Association (IDA) recently named him the 2016 Humanitarian of the Year.

Whether it has been through mentoring local youth, participating in mission trips around the world or donating his resources to assist local charities, he is always willing to give for the betterment of others.

Early in his career Mike began joining social service organizations and community boards as a way to get to know the needs of the community first-hand. Over the years, some of those groups have included, Big Brother/ Big Sister, Lourdes College, ProMedica Physicians Group, Rossford Exempted Village Schools, East Toledo Family Center, Eastern YMCA, YMCA of Greater Toledo, All Saints Catholic Church Vision 2000, ProMedica Bay Park Hospital Board, Red Cross of Greater Toledo, Cedar Creek Church Financial Advisory Team, Cedar Creek Security Team, Rotary Club, and ProMedica Physicians and Continuum Services.

Being a “hands-on guy,” Mike quickly realized that solely being a board member wasn’t enough. He then joined the Police Academy, becoming a Reserve Deputy Sherriff in three local counties. This allowed him to donate his time while providing a safe environment and self enrichment. In addition, Mike saw a tremendous opportunity within the already giving, service orientated culture at SSC. Thus, creating a formal community volunteerism program within SSC called Mission at Work.

Through Mission at Work, the SSC team has assisted numerous individuals across the world ranging from feeding the hungry through local food banks, assisting the unhoused, to traveling to Cambodia to assist children who have fallen victim to sexual trafficking.

Recognizing that there is still much more to be done, Mike created the position of Director of Corporate Social Responsibility within SSC. The vision for this full-time position is to continue to foster the internal culture of volunteerism as well as leading the industry in giving back to the community. Since, has implemented a company matching gift program as well as a program that awards individuals for volunteering in the community.

"By working together, we can leverage our resources and make a lasting impact in our own communities – and the nation. I am honored and humbled to have received the humanitarian of the year. Giving back to the community is something that has always been important to me. I believe that we still have so much to do – as a company, as a nation, and as individuals." - Mike McAlear

The Humanitarian of the Year award, presented annually by the International Door Association, recognizes individuals or groups whose efforts and accomplishments have made the community a better place to live and work.
