White Cross: 55 American Baptist Churches from Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont donated gifts for New American Christmas amounting to $12904. Most of the churches delivered the gift to MBMM office by their volunteers. We can not track how many volunteers have done the shopping and do the packing. We count 5 volunteers for 55 churches it would come around 25 volunteers of at least in hour each.
Local Churches and Organizations: We received in kind donation from 7 local churches and
two organization worth $6270. Each of these donations are also made by our volunteers.
MBMM Fundraiser Banquet, Multicultural Festival, MBMM Annual Meeting and New
American Christmas: These were the 4 major events of MBMM in 2017-2018 and in all these
events there were many MBMM volunteers who made all these events a great success. In Fund
Raiser we had 30 volunteers who help set up, clean up, collect auction items and drive people
who needed ride. During the Multicultural Festival we had four volunteers who worked for two days distributing flyers and pasting it the flyers in several prime locations. We also had 20 volunteers who helped set up and clean up, manned several food stations, games, bouncy etc. In the same way we had 8 volunteers during our Annual meeting for set up and clean up. For new American Christmas we had over 60 volunteers who helped packed and load to the two Uhaul truck of 660 gift bags for 4 hours and on the next two days we had over 20 volunteers each for setting up, clean up, giving away gifts, etc for Worcester and Lowell Party. All these would not have been successful without MBMM volunteers who is always willing to help always headed by our chief volunteers the MBMM Board of Directors.
