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 and provide funding for solutions.
This is the 5th year of an organized Moore Love funding drive, and we are excited to help our selected nonprofit organizations. The selected recipients for Moore Love 2021-2022 funding are:
- Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma: Backpack Program: MPS works with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma: Backpack 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.
- The Sharing Tree: The Sharing Tree is a nonprofit that serves families in need by providing a no-cost, dignified shopping experience. Their facility is stocked with clothing, household items, and necessities. Many of their patrons are MPS families.
- Moore Public Schools Foundation & The Bridges Project: Bridges is a non-profit organization with a mission of empowering students in a family crisis or who live alone to succeed. Staff work to remove barriers to high school graduation including help with food, clothing, shelter, and medical needs. They offer students counseling in life skills and advocates help them finish high school and move into the next phase of adulthood with the support of mentors and resources. The MPS Foundation has a mission of enhancing academic excellence, supporting the MPS district, and encouraging community and business involvement with MPS, including financial support. Through this new partnership, the MPS Foundation will build a capital framework to ultimately build a site in the MPS district where Bridges can implement its program with MPS students who find themselves in need of safety, security, and the support necessary to graduate.
Our big fundraising month with non-stop, fun celebrations is in February. If you have questions, please contact MPS Communications & Community Relations Director Anna Aguilar, APR.
Last school year's Moore Love 2020-2021 fundraising campaign was highly successful and we are so grateful for everyone's generosity, especially during the stress and unknowns of the pandemic. We raised more than $205,000 for: The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma: Backpack Program and the Moore Firefighters Santa Express. Many thanks to MPS students, staff, families, and patrons for helping us reach that massive goal, and for giving to these organizations that continue to help members of our community every day!
Some of our schools begin fundraising at the beginning of the year, which is great! Our big fundraising month with non-stop, fun celebrations happen in February. If you have questions, please contact MPS Communications & Community Relations Director Anna Aguilar, APR.
