You Can Make a Difference!

A Helping Hand Year-Round!

From infancy to graduation, local children count on your generosity. Thanks to you we are here for kids 365 days a year. Right now we are gearing up for summer: With your help, we are sending children to circus, nature and overnight camps; planning our back to school event, and making sure children's nutritional and recreational needs are met over summer when schools are closed. We are providing needed diapers and medical mileage. We have hundreds of wonderful kids who, through no fault of their own, need a helping hand. Please be assured that 100 percent of your donation will be used for community children. MCCF operational expenses are covered by bequests, donor advised funds, grants, and other efforts on the part of the board so that we can keep that promise always. .

Donate today, sleep better tonight! One dollar, $3, $5, $10, $50, or $100, or more can make a huge difference in a child's life. It takes a village and we are so glad you are part of ours!
