Miami Holiday Project

Holiday Project has ended and we were able to help 135 children!!! We will start again in a few months.

Per Anita Sackenheim:

  • Raised in 2019 = $9060 + $930 left over from last year = spent $9990 of that plus $3500 in gift cards (donated by Meijer) at Meijer on Saturday shopping.
  • The $9060 amount included a $1000 donation from the Oxford Kiwanis Club. (so Miami employees raised $8060.)
    add $5000 in gift cards from the Meijer Corporation.
  • In-kind donations include bicycles, books, diapers and baby items, stuffed animals, shoes and toys. (in-kind donations from other charities, Oxford Women's Club, Hooked on Jesus Crochet Club, and Miami employees.)
  • Many different donors and volunteers came from the Miami Tribe students, the Rowing Team, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Delta Epsilon Mu, University Advancement, Honors Program, CPAC, UPAC, the College of Education, Health & Society, Club Sports, MU Libraries, the ENG department, and so many more.
