Library books, new computers and software, lab supplies, gym equipment, classroom materials . . . there is never a lack of needs at school which require additional funds to provide the best educational tools for our children. Our MBS families, board members, parishioners, pastors and priests and friends put the “unity” in community when we raise funds for our school. Thank you, we could not do what we do without our generous MBS Community!
Volunteers are always needed to assist the various fundraising efforts. Please contact a member of the Home and School Association, your child’s teacher, or the office to sign up! Our Family Involvement Program (FIP) asks that each family contribute 20 hours of volunteer time to the school each year. Ten of these hours can be worked at your parish. The FIP creates a beautiful partnership between our school and our families. Together, we create a circle of faith, love and learning.
Shopping For Support
The following retailers have committed to a generous donation to our school for every dollar spent. Please frequent these stores and help us to “Shop for Support.”
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. Please note that every item available for purchase on www.amazon.com is also available on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) at the same price. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. For MBS to receive a donation, each user must choose Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic School, Berlin, MD as their charity and must log in through the smile.amazon.com page.
Please visit our MBS Scholastic Book Fair to help support our library and to purchase great books! Our virtual doors will open all summer and purchases over $25 of book-only products will receive FREE shipping. Make reading over the summer more fun by letting your children help pick out their books.
For every sweatshirt, polo and baseball hat you purchase through our School Spirit Wear Store, MBS receives a portion of your purchase. Show your school spirit while giving back to our school! GO MBS ~ We Love our School!
Retail stores run school funding programs year-round that can provide our school with tens of thousands of dollars while only taking a few minutes of your time.
