Christmas Giving Tree Fundraiser for Haven

In the season of giving, students decorated a giving tree with ornaments listing toys and other items that were needed to stock a Christmas shopping experience at Haven, a local non profit shelter, for victims of domestic violence victims. All items donated were added to a “store” where residents were able to shop, for free, for Christmas gifts for their families. MCP students got to choose tags and then helped with chores and other tasks at home to raise money to purchase the items. These donations were accepted in lieu of ticket sales for our annual Christmas Party, this year, hosted at Palate, however many students and families went well beyond the requirements with over $3000 worth of goods delivered. Haven was incredibly appreciative at the amount and quality of the good received. They were certain that our gifts would bring a smile to a lot of the residents there!
