“We are overwhelmed by the thank you notes flooding our mailbox from MFTA Members. The amount of people and the diversity of recipients are amazing. What MFTA does for the nonprofit community is really an incredible gift and resource. We are so grateful that the great stuff the show would have thrown away is being repurposed by needy organizations. Thanks for all your help and graciousness in making [Boardwalk Empire’s] wrap something to feel good about.”

Shopping is personal at the MFTA Warehouse!

After your Shopping Day experience, you will be sent a receipt with the items you received. MFTA asks that you write a personal note to the donors indicated. It is because of their generous support that MFTA can continue to provide materials to educators and non-profit organizations alike.

Materials are free; you pay only in gratitude!
