Upcoming McPherson College Restoration Fund Raiser

Recommended Posts

Soon, probably after the first of the year we are going to have a fund raiser for the McPherson College Restoration Program on The Old Motor, where people will be able to donate directly to the school towards tools or buy an item for them. Many of the items they need are expensive but you can also contribute as little as $5 and they will put it in a fund to buy the most needed things on the list.

Below is a list of some of the things they need, keep it in mind for when we have the fund raiser.

Just remember the young fellows we help today will be carrying on for us in the future.

We will announce it here and on The Old Motor.

In the mean time contact me here if you would like to buy any of the following for them and I will put you in touch with their fund raising department. Depending on your tax situation, donating before the end of the year may be better for you.
