Please take a moment to visit our Events and Fundraisers page to see details for several upcoming fundraisers. Thank you to the following schools for planning events to benefit and raise awareness for Meals 'til Monday: Bath, Elida, and Temple Christian.
We've just added a new page to our website called "The Routine". If you've ever wondered how the food gets from the warehouse at the West Ohio Food Bank into over 300 elementary kids' backpacks in 8 different school buildings, then you'll want to check out the step by step process that is MTM's weekly routine during the school year.
Thank you so much to the many wonderful people who chose to honor a friend or family member through a monetary donation for Christmas 2012. 77 honorees are now listed here. We invite you to check out the list. There might be someone you know! The total amount donated was $1,463.00. Meals 'til Monday pays $3.50 per sack of food for each child each weekend, so this amount will purchase 418 sacks. $140 sponsors a student for an entire school year, which means 10 students are sponsored through this fundraiser, with some money left over. We think that is a great Christmas gift! We're grateful for those who gave this unique gift this year and for the way it will benefit local elementary students.
Even though this fundraiser is complete, we welcome donations all year long. For information on giving to Meals 'til Monday, please visit this page of our website.
Your shopping list is long, and we'd like to help you shorten it! Our Events and Fundraisers page will direct you to a Thirty-One Gifts fundraiser that ends 11-26-12, a way to honor friends and family this Christmas for as low as $3.50, and a link to our snazzy logo shirts for sale in 3 styles and many sizes. The wide variety of options will certainly provide you with some ways to meet your Christmas shopping needs. Plus, when you shop or give using one of these fundraisers, you are contributing to Meals 'til Monday, which provides weekend food for nearly 300 children in 8 different elementary schools.
Please check out these fundraisers today, and be sure to spread the word to your friends and family. Thank you!
We're excited to announce that Meals 'til Monday is expanding once again. On Friday, September 28, 2012, Spencerville Elementary will have their first distribution. A key element in making this happen again in a new school district is the willingness of that school and community to step up and do what is needed to partner with us. Those who continue to give, pray, and volunteer for this organization are also very responsible for moving us into our 7th partner district. We praise God for the many people who come along side Meals 'til Monday to feed local children. Thank you all and welcome Spencerville!
