Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church Sleep Space program to receive 100+ People for Perry funds

COURTESY OF 100+ PEOPLE FOR PERRY
Special to the Chief
Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church will receive 100+ People for Perry funds as members selected its proposal for assistance with the Sleep Space program during the Aug. 22 meeting.

The 2022 3rd Quarter 100+ People for Perry meeting was held at the Hotel Pattee on Monday, Aug. 22.

Members selected the Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church proposal for assistance with its Sleep Space program and pledged $7,400. Awards are based on a yearly member pledge of $100/quarter.

"There is nothing more important for a growing child than a good night's sleep. With that in mind we have set out to ensure that every child in Perry has a comfortable and warm place to sleep," Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church said. "To that end we have created the Sleep Space. This is a place where anyone can come to get bedding, blankets and pillows. In some situations we also provide beds themselves."

One Hundred+ People for Perry’s mission is to invest in Perry’s future through supporting current charities/nonprofits/worthy projects which advance the quality of life and the betterment of the Perry community. After 27 meetings, the group has pledged $191,000 to 27 local nonprofit projects (based on members pledged commitment).

  • The goal of 100+ People for Perry is to make four large donations each year, which will impact our community.
  • Each contribution is to stay 100% in the community; no national charities will be considered. 
  • Each charity/nonprofit/worthy cause must be a 501(c)(3) or sponsored by a 501(c)(3), be project based, and benefit the Perry community.
  • Only members may attend and present.
  • New members are welcome.
  • Presentations are non-electronic and will include project details, other current and potential funding sources, and how the cause will advance the quality of life in the community and the betterment of Perry.
  • Pledges are collected at the conclusion of the meeting.
