In 2010 we asked the Shelby County TN Department of Children Services: “What can we do for you?” They said, “We have nearly 30 kids who need Christmas.” We gathered up a bunch of Red Sterilite Tubs and asked people to pitch in. ‘Red Tub Day’ was born. In 2016 through individuals, churches and businesses, the Memphis Family Connection Center (MFCC) was able to provide over 500 Red Tubs for children at risk and in foster care. As part of Red Tub Day, MFCC in partnership with White Station Church of Christ hosts a special day where the children come to receive a specific Red Tub that was matched to them. During the party, we have face painting, crafts, games, basketball, a petting zoo, pizza party, sleigh rides and (of course!) pictures with Santa.
SPONSOR A RED TUB
We ask you to commit to fill a Red Tub with gifts equivalent to $125 and offer a donation of $125 to the Memphis Family Connection Center. It’s a great opportunity for friends, co-workers or multiple families to partner together. This donation allows MFCC to provide care for foster and adoptive families in Shelby County. If you are unable to pick up a tub, use the form below to complete a sponsorship, and we will fill a tub in your name.
Sponsor a Red Tub
You, your business or your church can become official sponsors of Red Tub Day. You will receive prominent placement as an important partner, and have opportunities to engage your staff in the project. Sponsorships allow us to ensure every child receives a tub, offset costs of this event and provide much needed funding for MFCC. Use the form below to give online, or call us at 901-614-1902.
