The whole $10(or more) goes to the 8th Grade Foreign Language Academy Trip to Costa Rica!
The Foreign Language Academy is a K-8 foreign language immersion program with programs in Spanish and Mandarin. Their 8th grade students have enjoyed the opportunity to travel to Puerto Rico the last three years to experience a 10-day capstone opportunity to embed themselves within the culture and language that they have studied. This year, due to the hurricanes, the students are attempting to go to Costa Rica from May 6 – May 15. The trip, as you can imagine, is quite expensive and costs our inner-city students/families $2,545 each. The students work diligently to fund-raise, but have limited circles of influence on which they can rely on which can financially assist. This is where you come in.
With 27 students attempting to attend this year’s capstone experience, they are trying to raise nearly $70,000. We are hoping YOU will be able to donate a minimum of $10 in exchange for a Midtown KC soft style shirt donated by Mac Properties(similar quality shirts retail for $30!) to assist the students in achieving this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Our Goal is $10,000!!
The shirt is a 52% cotton and 48% Polyester unisex dark charcoal Bella Canvas t-shirt. You can pick up your shirt at our office and drop off your donation!
We accept cash and Venmo at the Mac Properties office of 301 E. Armour Blvd. The office hours are:
