Support Student Programs Through Booster Clubs
Benefactors can now contribute directly toward programs that help youth discover talents and build confidence by joining booster clubs. By making a designated gift to the Ag Booster Club or the MCH Athletics Booster Club, donations will be used to help these programs continue to grow and expand.
“These school programs play an important role in our ministry in helping our young people feel a sense of belonging and building their self-esteem,” said Trey Oakley, vice president for development. “Booster clubs provide a way for our benefactors to support our youth when unexpected program opportunities or expenses pop up during the year.”
The Ag Booster Club began around two years ago while the MCH Athletics Booster Club is new this year. Ag boosters have been available to bid on animals who have been selected for auction after junior livestock shows. Knowing that there are people on hand to bid on their animal project gives students reassurance and support.
Athletic boosters enabled the MCH golf team to attend an additional tournament during the spring 2018 season. Boosters have also enabled the volleyball and football teams to receive last-minute upgrades to uniforms and equipment. Most recently, the booster club is assisting in constructing a fence around the football field for added security.
Booster club members receive special recognition from the programs they support throughout the year. To get involved in the Ag Booster Club or MCH Athletics Booster Club, contact the Development department at Development@MCH.org or 1-800-853-1272. •
MCH hosted Commissioners on Oct. 16-17, 2018. Commissioners play an important role in raising awareness about our mission. During their visit, they were equipped with information and suggestions on ways they can generate more support for the ministry of Methodist Children’s Home. •
