Midtown students, staff and alumni join together to deliver over 300 Christmas baskets to Chicago area families.
MEF, Midtown Center for boys, and Metro Achievement Center for girls all received The Gold Star Mentoring Program Award from the Illinois Mentoring Partnership.
"I was interested in working this summer mainly to give back to a community I support. Metro has a warm and welcoming atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door. The women on staff work very hard to demonstrate individual attention, a care for parent education and respect towards each girl and her intellectual, personal and spiritual development."
Congrats to tournament winners AIM Consulting! Together, we raised over $11,000 for MEF kids! Couldn’t make it the kickball tournament, but want to give back? Consider joining Midtown or Metro as a volunteer this school year!
