Businesses: How You Can Help
MVHS is looking for sponsors for our upcoming special events. Our events generate a lot of community support and help MVHS gain needed friends and funds. Your business can be part of an event by becoming a sponsor. Cash donations are needed, of course, but we also accept in-kind donations, Many of our events feature auctions of items and/or gift certificates donated by businesses. You could also choose to become a vendor at one of our events. Everyone who helps gets recognition either in the promotional material or in our newsletter.Show the community you support MVHS. By supporting us, you will help the people and animals in our local area.
