What a wonderful month so far for the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser! We had a successful Christmas in Edgartown weekend and two additional Teddies Around Town for fundraising events. Combined with our major online fundraising drive, we have now raised more than $46,000 toward our $50,000 goal! We’d like to make and break that goal. To do that with your help, we’re launching the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Suite Fundraiser Donation Match.
Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser Donation Match – Point B Realty Is Making A 50% Match For Online Donations
Point B is offering a 50% match today and tomorrow on all online donations (ends December 30th at 11:59 p.m.). Point B will match 50-cents for everty dollar raised online up to $10,000. All that money raised goes directly to fund the Martha’s Boys & Girls Club’s after school program’s Healthy Happy Kids.
H2K is the vital after-school food program that provides free snacks, meals, and dinners for Club members. Food insecurity on the Island continues to be a big issue, made worse by the pandemic — supply, cost, accessibility — it can be even more challenging to get food.
“When it comes to addressing issues impacting our community – such as island children and families having consistent access to quality and nutritious food – if everyone gives a little, we can accomplish a lot,” says Dhakir Warren, Executive Director of the Club. “We’d like to thank Point B Realty for stepping up and playing an important role.”
H2K is a program that is working and making a real difference for the children of Martha’s Vineyard. It is for those reasons that we are such avid supporters and fundraisers for the program, and are launching our Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser Donation Match.
We just finished a new video that looks at H2K and all the events that have become part of the month-long MV Teddy Bear Suite.
Did You Know:
- Over 16,500 meals have been served to Club members through Healthy Happy Kids.
- 45% of the Island’s K-8 families depend on the Club for after-school programming, healthy meals, as well as athletic and academic opportunities.
- Over 449 children ages 5-19 are served
- In the first 10 years of the MV Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser, Point B has raised more than $265,000 to help run and fund these programs
Every dollar given goes directly to the Club. This year, give the gift of the simple joy of helping children have access to food for snacks and dinner throughout the year.
We’d be honored to have your support. Donations are tax-deductible.
