The Lake Wylie/Clover Mayday Project began as an outreach program of River Hills Community Church 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 and other needy 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 becoming an independent charitable organization, we have extended our support to others in need, especially homeless and other needy children within the York School District in addition to Clover. 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. These expenses sometimes include unbudgeted items such as fees for field trips and other extra-curricular activities for students who cannot afford these expenses.
Did you know:
We also provide funding to the following nonprofits that help children and their families within our communities: Children's Attention Home, Tender Hearts Ministry, Steppin' High, RideAbility, and Early Learning Partnership of York County.
Mayday does not typically provide funding for day to day operations of local charities. Instead, we are an on-call funding source for emergency needs which inevitably arise. It is hard to overstate how valuable Mayday support is to these charities, as they know that they can reach out to us for a variety of unexpected needs. Moreover, they know that we can respond quickly once the need is validated.
A few examples of Mayday support in recent years include:
College and Vocational Education
Mayday has scholarship funding available for needy students enrolled at local colleges. With an emphasis on the trades, we also provide scholarships for students graduating from Clover High School. We 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 college or vocational school over two consecutive years.
The first scholarship has been awarded, and with your generosity we hope to continue this program in the future.
