Every donation we receive between now and April 30 will be matched by McGregor, up to $10,000.00. As donations have dropped almost 50% with this poor economy, these funds are badly needed.
Also, as always, white socks and unused underwear, especially men's are welcome as well as office supplies such as copy paper and file folders.
