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 September 2, 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; which would provide 3 uniform shirts, 1 uniform jacket, and at least one pair of khaki slacks.
There are 3 ways to choose from in order to make this partnership with MMS a success:
Option 1) Fully sponsor a student (by yourself; OR PARTNER with a friend) 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) Fully sponsor a student (by yourself; OR PARTNER with a friend) by choosing a specific child and donating $75 or more. We will shop for you and purchase at least one pair of khakis and a Walmart gift card for the child to use.
Option 3) Contribute ANY AMOUNT towards the purchase of uniform clothing.
Sign-ups begin online August 1. On-site computer sign-up begins August 12, or stop by the table August 12 - September 2 for more information. 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 Next Steps and Generosity Can tables). Questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
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?
