Freedom School 2018

Our 2018 Freedom School is adding one more class! 

This means 10 more young people lives impacted through our Maumee Watershed District-Monroe Street Neighborhood Center Freedom School partnership.  Most of the $1000 scholarships come from our MWD congregations!  Some congregations give $250, some $500 and others one or more full scholarships.  What we each give makes a difference in these children’s lives.  Last year, 90% of the children in our Freedom School either maintained their reading level or increased in their reading level for the summer.  That’s a win!  If your church wants to contribute to Freedom School financially, or if you want to give as an individual, make out your checks out to The Maumee Watershed District with "Freedom School" in the memo line, then send to the office at 1729 Indian Wood Circle, Maumee, OH 43537.  For more information or to have a speaker come present to your church, mission team or group, contact erand [at] (Rev. Elizabeth Rand),  rschleif [at] (Rev. Rae Lynn Schleif), or call 419-897-9770.  This is a mission ministry of the Maumee Watershed District, let's go team!
