WHAT IS MOORE LOVE? Moore Love is our district’s annual philanthropic initiative, officially held in February, where our MPS community unites as one fundraising powerhouse to help fight hunger, heal hurts, and provide funding for solutions.
This is the 6th year of an organized Moore Love fundraising drive, and we are excited to help our selected nonprofit organizations. Last year all of our schools, with the help of our phenomenal community, raised approximately $360,000! Please know that any amount you, your business, or your organization can give is greatly appreciated and will be put to work immediately.
FEBRUARY $5 FRIDAYS! This year we're looking for ways to make giving easy on families, and help schools jump ahead on the fundraising leaderboard! There will be a Givebutter Champ for elementary, junior high, and high school this year. The great thing is that you can see – in real-time – which schools are winning in online donations. Final Givebutter totals will be added to each school’s annual fundraising totals to determine district winners. Let your family and friends know which school to select so they can join in and show some Moore Love!
We will also have our intra-district challenge! At the end of February, fundraising champions are named and receive a trophy and bragging rights. There will be four winners: one high school, one junior high, one elementary, and one feeder-school chain. Will it be the #lionpride, the #jaguarpride, or the #sabercatpride?
Thanks for showing your community some Moore Love!
The selected recipients for Moore Love 2023 funding are:
Regional Food Bank: MPS works with the Oklahoma Regional Food Bank, Backpacks for Kids Program, to provide food in backpacks for approximately 700 MPS elementary students without enough food at home to sustain them over the weekend. We have food pantries at many junior highs and high schools for our older students.
Bridges Moore: Bridges, Inc. is a non-profit organization that has the mission of empowering students to succeed who are in family crisis or who live alone. Staff work to remove barriers to high school graduation, including help with food, clothing, shelter, and medical needs. Bridges support students with counseling in life skills and encourage them to finish high school with the support of mentors and resources. Currently, Bridges cares for shelter-insecure MPS students at their site in Norman, but this project brings the Bridges concept to a dedicated site in Moore for MPS. Our donation will be dedicated to MPS students being served by Bridges and will also be allocated to the startup costs when the Bridges Moore site is operational.
Mary Abbott Children’s House: Abbott House provides services to children ages 3 to 18 years old from Cleveland, McClain, and Garvin Counties regarding many types of abuse and neglect, as well as being a witness to a crime or in a drug-endangered situation. MACH works closely with law enforcement, the district attorney's office, child protective services, mental health care professionals, and medical professionals to maintain a child-friendly atmosphere during investigations.
The Sparrow Project: Based in Moore and founded by parents of MPS graduates, The Sparrow Project provides an opportunity for adults with disabilities to live a fulfilling life post-high school. Social events help MPS and other district graduates by involving them in community volunteer work and activities giving them a chance to continue to interact with their peers. A goal of TSP is to expand sessions to four days per week instead of twice. This group is entirely funded by individuals and corporate donations
Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children: The core of OBHC is to provide a safe and loving space for women and children who need a home, human services, and hope. The south Oklahoma City site provides services through Children’s Hope, providing single mothers who are 18 and older education on career and parental development, money management, relational needs, and more.
