Plus-1 Sunday

Mayors Willie W. Herenton and AC Wharton have declared December 7th as Plus-1 Sunday in Memphis and Shelby County. Pastors in area churches have been asked to make a special collection that day from congregation members, which will be used to aid the Plus-1 program.

MLGW acts as a collection agency for Plus-1, and forwards all money received directly to MIFA each month. In turn, MIFA administers the funds and cooperates with other agencies to see that assistance reaches those with the greatest need. The Plus-1 program offers one-time assistance. It serves as a "stop gap" measure to those in need, not an on-going source of assistance.

For information on how to get your church involved, contact the Community Relations department 528-4820.
