The Mariemont Preschool Parents Group (MPPG) donated $7,500 to the Mariemont City School District as a result of the Mariemont Luminaria Event, hosted on December 5, 2020.
Each year MPPG hosts Luminaria in the Village and raises money through the sales of luminaria kits, generous donations of our sponsors within the surrounding community and the hard work of our entire committee. MPPG is a 501 C organization and each year we work to find partners where we can donate our funds.
This year it was important to MPPG to find a way to ensure children within district that were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic were able to benefit. In partnership with the Mariemont School Foundation and the Angel Fund, MPPG is donating these funds to help provide support for mental health for families in financial need. Because of the fantastic support this year, it also donated a portion of its funds to St. Joseph's Orphanage to help provide nutrition for food insecure children in the Cincinnati area, and will be providing a new playhouse at the Tot Lot at Dogwood Park.
