Honor Friends & Family with a Christmas Gift Donation
As you make out your shopping list and prepare to purchase Christmas gifts, we invite you to consider making a donation to Meals 'til Monday as a way to honor or remember special people in your life. Maybe this unique gift would be great for that hard to buy for person that has everything, a current or retired school employee, a hostess gift for someone throwing a Christmas party, a stocking stuffer for your kids, an easy to mail gift to long distance loved ones or friends, your boss or employees, or as an addition to another gift. Perhaps you would like to take this opportunity to remember someone who is no longer with us. We invite you to read through the options below.
For a minimum donation of only $3.00, the person or family you choose to honor or remember will have their name posted on a page designated specifically for this purpose starting December 31, 2018. (We don't want to go public about their gift until you've had plenty of time to present it to them.) Follow the 3 easy steps below, and you will be taking care of your Christmas shopping list and meeting the hunger need of a child in our community.
1. Decide which card(s) you would like to give to those you will be honoring or remembering and print them from our website.
2. Fill out, detach, and mail the bottom portion of the printed off page(s) with your donation (please make checks out to Meals 'til Monday) to: MTM, PO Box 3072, Elida, OH 45807. **Please have your donation postmarked by December 22, 2018 to ensure their name is posted on time.**
3. Present the top portion, the Christmas card, to your chosen recipients.

Q. Why do I have to give at least a $3.00 donation?
A. The average weekly cost for Meals 'til Monday to provide one child with a sack of weekend meals is $3.00, which is why we are requesting that as a minimum donation. Of course, we welcome larger donations to provide for more than one child or multiple weekends. In fact, $120 will provide meals for a child for an entire school year.
Q. How will my donation be used?
A. Your entire donation will be used to purchase food for the recipient students of Meals 'til Monday. More donation information can be found here.
Q. What if I want to honor or remember more than one person or several families?
A. Print off as many cards as you have people or families to honor and fill out the bottom portion for each, but you can have the combined donation all in one check. Please make sure you have a minimum of $3.00 for each card you print off and fill out/person or family you wish to honor.
Q. I would like to give a donation in memory of someone, but I will not be presenting the card to anyone as a gift. Is that ok?
A. Yes. Please print off and fill out the bottom portion of Christmas Card 5 and mail it with your donation as instructed.
Q. How long will their names posted on the website?
A. Until November 2019, when we hope to be advertising this fundraiser for the following year. At that time, the names for the 2018 Christmas wishes will be removed to make way for the new (or repeat) honorees.
Q. What will the honoree page look like? Will it just be their name on there?
A. Names will be listed alphabetically under a Christmas wish on this page.
Q. Will the amount of the donation be posted?
A. We will not post the donation amounts given for each individual, but we do reserve the right to post a grand total of the donation this fundraiser generated.
Q. Will the donor's name be posted?
A. No, so please sign your card to let them know the gift was from you.
Q. When can I give them their Christmas card?
A. As soon as you'd like, but their name will not be posted here until December 31, 2018.
