From the moment our bus pulled up, to the moment it pulled away, the children and families on Batey 50 welcomed us with open arms and love. -Dan Brecher, Quinnipiac University, QU301DR Fall Service Trip, 2015
There are many giving and support opportunities available for the year-round. Please join this effort to directly help the very poor in the Dominican Republic - and there are many ways to donate below:
- Build a new, safe house for a family in a batey or barrio - $8,200.
- Supply bunk beds for those houses that have been built by our teams - $250 and twin mattresses - $150 for both.
- Support a Special Celebration in a very poor batey or at the Joe Hartman School – Any dollar amount is welcome to help offset the costs of these great celebrations.
- Joe Hartman School Kitchen Project – Suggested donation is $250 (join the La Romana Giving Circle) as this is a big project requiring a large amount of startup dollars. However, any dollar amount is welcome to help to feed the students at the School. This is especially meaningful especially if you have a heart for the Joe Hartman School and/or sponsor a child there.
- Sponsor a Joe Hartman Student for 2016-17 - $200 per student.
- Sponsor Batey 50 Tee Shirts or DRMT Team Shirts (If it is a business, we will put the company’s logo on the sleeve.) – Any dollar amount is welcome to offset the costs of these shirts. Contact Susanne for specifics on sponsorship opportunities.
- Sponsor a child to attend school in Batey 50 - just $60 for the entire school year!
- Help sponsor Batey 50 and Batey Las Cejas – this can be $20 a month or more. The DRMT sends money each month for these two bateyes to help with vitamins, malnutrition issues and medical visits.
- Sponsor Food Distribution to hungry families in the bateyes during the DRMT summer trips - $500 (Fulfilling Smiles program oversee the food distribution)
- Sponsor a Medical Clinic on a Batey during the DRMT summer trips - $500.
- Contribute to the Pastor Bill Huegel Scholarship Fund so that a local teenager or adult can participate on this year’s trip – any portion of the $1,400 trip cost.
Last, as we strive to grow our DRMT Annual Fund, we welcome gifts of $25 in support of our 25+ years of serving in the DR, $250 for 25 years (La Romana Circle) or $2500 for 25 years (Good Samaritan Council). These gifts can be designated to a specific project or remain undesignated.
Thank you for your continued support!
