Holiday Opportunities

wishing you a merry

This has been such a big year at MCUM. Both our Self-Sufficiency Center and Compass Early Learning Center have grown, evolved, and are serving more families than before – and it is thanks in large part to the incredible outpouring of support we’ve had from the community. Thank you for being part of this important time in our agency’s history – it matters!

We’ve streamlined our holiday activities this year in order to most efficiently provide happy holidays to our clients while continuing to pursue our mission and meet the daily needs in front of us.   I’ve enclosed a list with all of the details.  There are several giving options available, including:

  • Sponsoring a Compass family for Christmas;
  • Donating to the rent and utility aid fund;
  • Providing a food basket to a family in need;
  • Running a food drive; or,
  • Supplying Compass kids with Santa Bags.

Your participation in our holiday activities helps us end the year strong! You make the spirit of Christmas come alive for children from low-income families, you provide holiday meal staples for hungry families through food baskets, and you stock up our cleaning and hygiene closet, classrooms, and enrichment funds so that once the giving mood of the season is over, MCUM can continue to inspire hope and joy in the families we serve.
