With the help of many generous donors, over the course of the past 8 months, we have raised $2.5 million towards our $3.5 million goal. We have already started putting the funds to work on the Schnitzer Family Campus with security and fitness upgrades and plans to repair the parking lot in the fall of 2013. We would not be able to make these kinds of critical improvements without the support of individuals just like you. Every donation, regardless of the amount, goes a long way towards helping us continue to make improvements to the facility – in the Therapy Pool, in the locker rooms and on the fitness floor! Thanks to a generous challenge grant from the Harold & Arlene Schnitzer Care Foundation, whatever amount you pledge will be matched 100%. And because of this great opportunity to double your gift, when we complete this campaign, we will have $600,000 in reserves designated for future repairs to the building. We hope you will join other MJCC members and supporters in making a significant pledge to the Roots & Rafters campaign. For more information visit www.rootsandrafters.org.

For all of our MJCC members, families and community partners, our campus is a home away from home – a place where we feel secure. Unfortunately, our home needs some upgrades; fortunately, though a generous match, now is the time to make the renovations happen!
