The Spiritual Fitness Leg- December 13- 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 2500 children in the local area. Now in our seventh year, our goal for 2014 is to help 800 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 find you INNER ELF this holiday season by joining us in 2014 to experience a Christmas Season that will be remembered for a long time.
