Home   Ways To Give   The500CLUB


We are excited to introduce a fun and innovative club providing sustainable, financial support for My Place Teen Center and kids considered most at risk, as well as an annual networking opportunity for like-minded business professionals.

Why is it called The500CLUB?

My Place Teen Center serves 500+ kids each year; that’s 500 reasons to give.

The500CLUB’s Objectives:

To raise funds and awareness about My Place Teen Center.

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 Member Responsibilities:

Members will be asked to make a recurring annual gift of $960 to My Place Teen Center to Fund-A-Kid for one year. You can fund as many kids as you wish. Payments can be made annually, quarterly, or monthly. Credit cards are accepted — and payroll deductions at certain locations.
The Fund-A-Kid program provides meals and services to kids-at-risk. The national average cost for these services ranges from $1,500-$2,500. By carefully monitoring resources and running an efficient operation, MPTC provides kids with daily meals, snacks, and programs at an annual cost of $960 per kid, or $80 per month. We want to grow the program to ensure all of the MPTC kids are funded on a perpetual basis to ensure that operations and programming continue without interruption. Each sponsored kid will have access to 1,300 hours of specialized programming and 260 hot meals, year-round.

The500CLUB Membership Benefits:

  • A fun and educational dinner with Donna and the kids where members experience first-hand how their gift is making a difference and an opportunity to network with other like-minded business professionals and community leaders once a year.
