Many dishes still needed, please help...

Creative ways to help our schools...
A Message From MESA Ways and Means Board Member Sue Kucharski
As the Vice President of Ways and Means for MESA, I have been trying to think of new, fun ways to raise money for our schools. I like to eat and entertain, so I asked a few women in my neighborhood with kids in our elementary schools if they'd be interested in coming to my house for a potluck/fundraiser dinner. I would make the main course and provide the drinks, they would bring a side dish or a dessert and also make a donation to MESA in an amount that they would have spent had we gone out to dinner instead. The idea was met with such enthusiasm that the original group of six, including myself, turned into a group of eleven! Proof that the parents in our town are eager to help improve our schools!
I have to say, we had so much fun. We ate so well, we got to spend some quality time together, and to top it off, we raised $410 for MESA!
If this idea appeals to you, I encourage you to try it, whether it's with your friends or neighbors.
Another Fun Way to Give
If you are having a cookie swap, a holiday party, or book club meeting, put out a jar for people to drop a few dollars in for MESA. For the second year in a row, MESA received a check in the mail from someone who did just that at her Halloween party and raised $120!
