"It is in giving that we receive."
Over 3000 children in Southern Indiana are hoping people like you and M4MM will help make the holidays brighter for them this year. Since 2008 we have been able to serve over 3500 angel tree kids in our community thanks to our generous sponsors and community partners
More than 90% of the Angels we sponsored last year came from single parent homes. Would you plus join us in giving the kids and their hopeful families a nice but modest holiday to remember?
Register now to provide a Salvation Army Angel Tree child with much needed clothing, shoes, coat and maybe an age appropriate toy. Costs for your angel(s) may range from about $100-$150 depending on age, gender, sizes, etc. We ask that our sponsors lovingly but modestly provide for their angels.
NEW THIS YEAR.... Be a Secret Santa!!!! Your $25 donation will sponsor an Angel Tree child AT THE Holiday Celebration. This will include traditional holiday meal, entertainment, crafts, visit with pictures and toys from Santa. Families will receive $25 Kroger gift card and food to take home for the kids while they are on holiday break from school.
Your compassionate service will brighten the lives of some of the Salavtion Amy's Angel Tree Children in our community that need this assistance, that need that hope for a brighter future, that deserve to be a kid. Your partnership will also give our youth leaders the chance to develop their leadership skills as they plan and execute the M4MM community events this holiday season, while preparing for college, careers and a lifetime of community service.
If you are not able to sponsor an angel tree child this year but would like to still help, we do accept donations. Just click here: DONATE NOW

The Spiritual Fitness Leg- December 17th- New Albany- Non Publicized Event
To wrap up the M4MM season, we invite our Angel Tree families, along with about 200 of the registered Volunteers to a Holiday Celebration that includes crafts, games, prizes, caroling, entertainment, Santa and Mrs. Claus visit as well as a traditional Christmas Feast. Volunteers get to interact with the Angels and their families on a one to one basis while working with them on crafts, performing a skit, teaching them a song or by serving them a sit down dinner. Presents and food baskets are secretly placed in the parent's car so that Angels don't realize the gifts came from the M4MM organization and its sponsors/volunteers.
Miles for Merry Miracles (M4MM) is a youth-driven, non-profit organization based out of Southern Indiana. We partner with the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program to provide a Christmas to children in need. M4MM got its start as an Eagle Scout Project organized by Nick Hebert in 2008. To date, M4MM has served over 3500 children in the local area. Now in our ninth year, our goal for 2016 is to help 300 Angels and continue to expand into more of Southern Indiana and Louisville.
M4MM is proud to be a youth-led organization. Our Youth Board consists of high school and middle school students throughout the New Albany-Floyd County School Corporation, West Clark School Corporation, Harrison School Corporation and Greater Clark School Corporation. These young men and women participate in every aspect of M4MM, from the Board meetings, to fundraising, marketing, finance and interviews with the local media. With the help of adult mentors, the youth board defines the goals of M4MM and develops a plan to make a positive change on society. The Adult Mentors guide them along the way.
We invite you to discover your INNER ELF this holiday season by joining us in 2016 to experience a Christmas Season that will be remembered for a long time.
