Help us write the 28th Chapter of an Incredible Story: “The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense.”

Proverbs 27:9 - Our 2018 Theme

Support our 2018 Annual Fund.  As this is our 28th year, we are asking for gifts of $28 in support of our continued work or $280 for 28 years (La Romana Giving Circle) or $2,800 for 28 years (Good Samaritan Council). These gifts can be designated to a specific project or remain undesignated.  If you give a Christmas gift In Honor of, or In Memory of someone, you will receive a special card that can be given to that person directly or perhaps tucked away in their stocking!

Interested in a particular giving opportunity? There are many giving and support opportunities available year-round.  All gifts will directly help the very poor in the Dominican Republic - please see this year's specific giving opportunities below:

  • Build a new, safe house for a family in a batey or barrio – $8,200.  This year we will be partnering with Batey La Papita in an effort to rebuild all of their homes.
  • Supply bunk beds for those houses that have been built by our teams – $250 and/or twin mattresses –$150.
  • 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 $270 (join the La Romana Giving Circle) as this is a big project requiring a large amount of dollars.  However, any dollar amount is welcome to help to feed the students at the School. This is especially meaningful if you have a heart for the work that the Joe Hartman School does and/or sponsor a child there.
  • Sponsor a Joe Hartman Student for 2017-18 – $220 per student.
  • Sponsor a Teacher at Joe Hartman School for 2017-18 - $200/month or $2,400 for the year.
  • Sponsor Celebration Day 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 oversees 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.
  • Support our Hygiene Kits and Baby Bundles –  $27 (distributed through the Medical Clinics).

Save-the-Date:  Our Annual DR Fundraiser to be held in April 2018 at New Life Church in Wallingford.  Another great way to support the work that we do in the Dominican Republic.
Stay tune for more details!
