bless children at MOUNTAIN Mission School

Our latest GENEROSITY CAN project is underway to benefit Mountain Mission School (located in Grundy, Virginia). They serve as home, church and school to students coming not only from Appalachia, but from over 60 countries worldwide. More than 95% of MMS graduates go on to college. 

 

By August 27, our goal is to provide each child with some new uniform clothes as they start back to school. To fully sponsor a child, the suggested one-time amount is $75-100 per child. 

 

There are 3 ways to choose from in order to make this partnership with MMS a success:

 

Option 1) Fully sponsor a student by SHOPPING for at least one pair of khaki slacks (approximately $25) for your sponsored student and submitting $50 payable to First Church for their MMS uniform shirts/jacket. You are welcome, but not required to purchase other additional clothing items or other non-essential personal items for your child (lotion, jewelry, aftershave, etc.). Sizes will be sent via email automatically upon completion of the sign up form. 

 

Option 2) Partner with a friend to fully sponsor a student as noted in option 1.


Option 3) Contribute ANY AMOUNT towards the purchase of uniform clothing.


Would you be able to help in some way this year with our efforts to sponsor each of the over 200 children at Mountain Mission School with a new outfit to begin the school year?


Click here or stop by the table at church to select your child to sponsor and make your gift online if you choose. 

  

Please return your wrapped gifts for the children no later than September 4th. If you are contributing by cash or check, please place it in a green Grundy Mountain Mission envelope (available at the Welcome Center and the Generosity Can tables).
