MUM’s Non-Event Fundraiser of the Year Progress Report

Help Us Reach Our Fundraiser $25,000 Goal!

We Need Your Support!

As explained in our last newsletter and blog post, we are trying something different this year. Instead of our annual fall gala fundraiser we are having a MUM 2018 Non-Event Fundraiser this year!

We are already into the second week in October and still have a long way to go to reach our goal of $25,000 by October 20; thus this update, reminder, and appeal. Please help MUM help our clients—your neighbors—right here in Montgomery County.

Your generous financial contributions go directly to providing food, housing and utility assistance, and vital medical and prescription assistance for individuals and working families who struggle to make ends meet. Your support is the difference between:

  • Children and families having some food on a daily basis instead of going hungry
  • People staying in their homes instead of facing eviction and its family and life-destroying consequences
  • Children, the elderly, families and individuals having heat this coming winter, protection from the elements or living in unhealthy conditions
  • Running water, so vital and taken for granted for so many everyday activities including maintaining basic hygiene, cooking, cleaning and, most importantly, having water to drink
  • Not being able to turn on lights at night, necessary appliances and devices and having the security of knowing they don’t have to live in the dark and they have a way to communicate with family, friends, and the outside world
  • Failing health due to lack of medicine for themselves and their children

You see, YOU really are their lifeline! MUM is the conduit to help earnest people who are genuinely struggling to stay above the line of despair, hopelessness, and failure. YOUR contribution helps keep families together and off the streets.
