MUM Fall Fundraiser: We’re Almost There

Donate to MUM

As you know, this year we tried something different. Instead of our annual gala we tried to reach more people with our MUM’s Non-Event Fundraising Campaign. We gave ourselves a deadline of October 20 to raise $25,000. As of this writing we are only a little over $5,000 away! We don’t have that far to go. And with YOUR help we can still make that goal!

How You Help

The $25,000 that we raise will go to working people and families in our community who occasionally need a helping hand. YOUR contributions help MUM provide them with the basic essentials like food, housing and utilities, and medical needs including prescriptions.

YOUR contributions enable us to provide a Food Pantry and Food Truck so that our clients don’t have to go without food. YOUR contributions provide much needed funds to help them when they need help preventing evictions or keeping the utilities on. YOUR contributions can save lives by providing prescription assistance.

Who You Are Helping

ALL of MUM’s clients have applied to us for assistance. Their individual situations have been assessed to be sure that all of our resources are going to the people who need it the most. We support people who are employed and working and doing everything they can to maintain a stable living environment and provide for themselves and their families.

Our clients are of all nationalities, races, and backgrounds. Their challenges remind us that when it comes to the basic essentials of life–food, housing, safety, and health–we are all the same.

We are SO close to our goal. Please help us reach it!
