16th Annual Addressing Mesquite Day
Addressing Mesquite Day is held in partnership with the Mesquite Ministerial Alliance and the City of Mesquite. This annual one-day event focuses on home repairs needed by senior citizens, single parents, military veterans and the disabled and other homeowners in Mesquite
This year’s AMD will be held on October 3, 2020. The last day for homeowners to complete a request form is June 26, 2020. Volunteer groups also have until June 26, 2020 to sign up.
Last year, City staff and Council members teamed with clubs, businesses, civic and faith-based organizations to make exterior repairs to 98 homes. More than 1,100 volunteers participated. Area businesses also provided $50,000 in monetary and in-kind donations to assist with the event.
How to Help
There are three ways you can be involved:
TO SPONSOR OR DONATE:
The transformations that occur on Addressing Mesquite Day would not be possible without the financial support of generous community donors like you. We hope that you can support this effort by sponsoring a portion of this event. The sponsorship levels are:
- Platinum Sponsorship ($5,000) This level would allow the company’s logo to appear on all publication materials, the event T-shirt, the City of Mesquite Web site, the event banner and would give the sponsor an opportunity to address the participants on the morning of the event.
- Gold Sponsorship ($2,500) This level would allow the company’s logo to appear on all publication materials, the event T-shirt, the City of Mesquite Web site and the event banner.
- Silver Sponsorship ($1,000) This level would allow the company’s logo to appear on all publication materials, the event T-shirt and the City of Mesquite Web site.
- Bronze Sponsorship ($500.00) This level would allow the company’s name to appear on the event t-shirt.
If you are interested in giving but cannot serve as an official sponsor, you can donate a different denomination. Every contribution, no matter how small, helps supply volunteers with resources to accomplish more on Addressing Mesquite Day.
