HELP US REACH OUR GOAL

By October 20th, 2018

MUM has held an annual gala in the fall for many years. Although they have been enjoyable for attendees and successful for us, they have their limitations. So this year, what we are asking you to do is stay home, relax, and take the money you would have spent on attending a gala and donate it to MUM before our Non-Event Fundraiser date of October 20, 2018.

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.

Giving to MUM is easy. Here is how to donate:

I give to MUM so those in need of food may have it or may need help in other ways. I have been so blessed. I grew up where neighbors would appear with their savings to share, if they thought there was a need.

"Greetings.  There was no hesitation to give when longtime friend asked.  I know her character and I knew the cause to be a worthy one and I did not hesitate to help. My prayer is that many more will join in to give to M.U.M.'s annual fundraiser from where ever they are. Hugs - all the way from from Houston, Texas"
