MCS’ Holiday Giving Project Through The Neighborhood House
MCS is sponsoring 3 families through The Neighborhood House. The first two families are single moms who have fallen on some hard times and the third family is a family whose mother has terminal cancer and they expect this to be their last holiday season together. We have three trees set up in the MCS Lobby. Each tree is adorned with ornaments. On the back of the ornaments is a family, family member, and their wished for gift.
We have broken up the families to: Family A, Family B, and Family C. On the table next to the trees are complete lists. Please fill out what ornaments you drew on these lists so we can more easily track what is being donated. We encourage you to involve your students in this process. All donated items must be to MCS no later than Thursday, December 10th.
The Neighborhood House has been helping and supporting children and families in our community since 1894. It was founded with the goal of serving underprivileged children, to raise the standard of living, and to provide food and clothing when necessary. Neighborhood House exemplifies the ideals of an early settlement house. They have a strong history of bringing individuals, families and community together. From the very beginning, they have embraced their neighbors, celebrated Utah’s many cultures, and connected families to cultural and community resources in our community. Throughout their rich history, one thing has always remained constant: providing quality care for low-income families based on their ability to pay. More information can be found here: nhutah.org
