State Charity

MASC is proud to announce the 2018-2019 State Charity – “Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation”

The Believe In Tomorrow Children’s Foundation provides exceptional hospital and respite housing services to critically ill children and their families. The organization believes in keeping families together during a child’s medical crisis, and that the gentle cadence of normal family life has a powerful influence on the healing process.

Believe In Tomorrow provides Hospital Housing for 90 individuals each night that receive treatment at the world-renowned John Hopkins Children’s Center. Respite Housing offered at five different facilities is also available to families for getaways and spending quality family time together.

While operating the largest pediatric respite program nationwide, The Believe In TomorrowChildren’s Foundation serves children from every state and more than 82 countries. MASC is proud to be working with The Believe In Tomorrow Children’s Foundation for the 2018-2019 School Year!

This year, the MASC Service Coordinators will be promoting a yearlong service initiative: Keys of Service! We have some information to give out regarding how your region can help support our state charity initiative and also some essential things for future reference.

MASC’s goal is to give two seasonal donations to our State Charity. Believe In Tomorrow has a wish list of items that they ask for people to donate in order to help them run their facilities and support the many families in their care. Each division has been assigned different items from their wish list. We are asking that each region collect these items throughout the fall-winter season for our 1st seasonal donation in December! Donation items will be brought to the 2018 Fall Leadership Conference at Chopticon High School in St. Mary’s County or the December executive board meeting.

We will also be having another seasonal donation throughout Late Winter – Spring where regions will be able to bring items to Convention or the June executive board meeting.
