JoinTodayWhat is The500CLUB?

A cool and fun club consisting of a diverse group of people who want to help kids-at-risk in Cumberland and York counties by lending their financial support.

The500CLUB’s Objective:

To fund a kid! Every child deserves a champion. An adult who will never give up on them. At MPTC, we’re making that commitment. Join us to fulfill that promise. We’re not just raising kids here, we’re raising adults, and they’re headed your way. For $960/year, each youth sponsored has access to 800 hours of specialized programming and 200 healthy meals.

What and How:

500CLUB members will be asked to make an annual gift of $960 to fund-a-kid for one year or more. Or fund as many kids as you wish! Payments can be made annually, quarterly, or monthly. The national average cost for these afterschool and meal services ranges from $1,500-$2,500. By carefully monitoring resources and running an efficient operation, MPTC provides kids with daily meals, snacks, and special programs at an annual cost of $960 per kid, or $80 per month.
