Teacher Appreciation Week

May 6-10, 2024

Celebrating our teachers near and far!

In the United States, Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-10th, and it is a special time to shower our educators with gratitude and appreciation for their hard work, dedication, and the positive impact they have on our lives and the lives of our children.

Are you looking for a unique gift to give your child’s teacher that will also give back to the Missionvale Care Center? Make a donation in honor of your child’s teacher and all funds will go directly to the Normoyle Primary School at Missionvale. We will send you a certificate to print out and give your teacher.

Our Causes

The need is so great in the Missionvale Township. Missionvale USA has focused its efforts around fundraising for the most fundamental and critical needs of education, nutrition, and health care.

While our fundraising campaigns center within these categories, we also work hard to secure general funding that the Care Center can use to operate any of their programs and services and meet the needs of the people.

“To every donor who has contributed via Missionvale USA – thank you for entrusting your funds to us. Every cent is stretched to its maximum capacity, and directly impacts a life here in Missinovale.

Thank you for remembering the people here. Every day we take time to remember you also. Some we know by name, and some of you we have not met, but you are in our hearts and committed in our thanksgiving prayers always.”
