Honor Educators With a Donation
As the school year comes to a close, many will be looking for a way to say thank you to those who have impacted their lives or the life of their child. Maybe there was a teacher, administrator, bus driver, coach, secretary, or volunteer that you want to tell how grateful you are for what they have done this year. Please consider making a donation to Meals 'til Monday in their honor.
For a minimum donation of $3.50, the person you choose to honor will have their name posted on a website page designated specifically for this purpose starting June 1, 2016. Follow these easy steps, and you are on your way to honoring a special person 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 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 Wednesday, May 25, 2016 to ensure their name is posted on time.**
3. Present the top portion (the thank you card) to your chosen person. We encourage you to include a personal note letting them know what you appreciate about them.
If you would like them to receive a tangible gift as well, one idea is a Meals 'til Monday logo t-shirt or sweatshirt. See the options and sizes here, and contact us if you would like to make any purchases.

Q. Why do I have to give at least $3.50?
A. It costs Meals 'til Monday $3.50 to provide one child with a sack of weekend meals, 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, $140 will provide meals for a child for an entire school year. While we realize that is a bit steep for a thank you gift, it might be a possibility if several people wanted to chip in to honor one person.
Q. What does my donation go towards?
A. Your entire donation will be used to purchase food for the recipients of Meals 'til Monday. More donation information can be found here.
Q. What if I want to honor more than one person?
A. Print off as many cards as you have people to honor and fill out the bottom portion for each individual, but you can have the combined donation all in one check. Please make sure you have a minimum of $3.50 for each person you wish to honor.
Q. How long will the honorees have their name posted on the website?
A. Until the end of the 2016-2017 school year.
Q. What will the honoree page look like? Will it just be their name on there?
A. Names will be listed alphabetically grouped together by school districts.
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 thank you card?
A. As soon as you'd like, but their name will not be posted on the webpage until June 1, 2016.
