Here to Help logo in red

 

You came out in record numbers. You donated in record numbers. You shopped in record numbers. THANK YOU!

On Wednesday, February 11 – you ‘Gave from the Heart’ – and made history!

Thank you for caring so deeply about our entire community – the young ones through to the elderly; the healthy and vibrant to those needing temporary or ongoing supports. MIYFS is Here to Help!

Our collective donations raised $150,000…. so far!
Here’s the breakdown:
$50,000 – Combined Sponsorship & Pool for $500 Match Gifts
$5,000 – Pre-Event Donations
$95,000 – At-Event Donations*   *At-Event Donations increased by $25,000 over last year.
We received 69 – $500 gifts. Up from 40 last year, and 20 in 2013!

We are still calculating Post-Event Donations and our Shopping Day 20% Proceeds from our Business Partner Program.
How does this compare?
Last year our FINAL tally, inclusive of Post-Event Donations and Business Partner Program, was $135,000. So, as I said, we are already at $150,000 – and counting!!

Special Thanks to Terry Pottmeyer and Dean Quigley for being WONDERFUL Honorary Chairs!
Please visit our Giving from the Heart tab – say Thank You to our sponsors when you are out and about.
And continue to frequent our Business Partners!
