Celebrating our 25th Anniversary All Year Long!

Monthly Honorees and Celebrations!

In 2023, we celebrated 25 years of service as a trusted resource for assistance with critical needs for children.  Our mission and service program have remained unchanged over the past 25 years! MTF operates all year long, providing assistance on a weekly basis (50 weeks per year!) to children in Lake County.

To share and celebrate this wonderful program with you, our supporters, each month we focus on a specific aspect of what we do and the dedicated, generous people who make it all happen.  We use our monthly e-mail newsletters to feature these key aspects of MTF. For more information, see the corresponding pages on our web site or contact us!
