The Lake Wylie/Clover Mayday Project began as an outreach program of River Hills Community Church called Operation Mayday, to meet the needs of families in emergency situations within the Clover School District. Upon speaking with representatives from the school district, the team became aware that there was a population of homeless families with school age children that were in need of help. Funds were raised through a golf tournament to help these families through representatives of the Clover School District. The Lake Wylie/Clover Mayday Project became an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2012.
Since then we have extended our help to homeless children within the York School District also. We provide monetary assistance and gift cards for transportation, clothing, shoes, school supplies, personal hygiene products, and any other needs the school district representatives become aware of for students within the two school districts.
We also provide funding to the following nonprofits that help children within our communities: Children's Attention Home, Tender Hearts Ministry, Steppin' High, RideAbility, and Early Learning Partnership of York County.
Mayday has scholarship funding available for needy students enrolled at York Technical College. With an emphasis on the trades, we also provide scholarships for students graduating from Clover High School. We also work with the Clover School District social workers to identify emergency tuition needs and make them available to other Clover High School graduates.
NEW SCHOLARSHIP BEGINNING 2022
The Lake Wylie/Clover Mayday project will award a $1,000 per semester scholarship to a graduating Clover High School senior. The scholarship is for up to 4 semesters at a trade or vocational school over two consecutive years.
The completed application must be submitted to the Clover High School Guidance office by March 8, 2022.
