Miss Mary Mac's Homemade Ice Cream Toppings Company announced today its fundraising opportunities for sports organizations, schools, clubs or other non-profit parties stemming from a hardship case of an eleven year old boy in Marlborough, MA

It's amazing what kind of influence newspaper reporters can have on the general public. A very ingenious reporter from the Marlboro Enterprise in Marlborough, MA did a story about an eleven year old boy whose family did not have enough money for him to join Pop Warner Football. "Josh got on his bicycle this past Tuesday, and rode in a steady downpour to the offices of this newspaper. Somehow, Josh had gotten into his head that he could deliver newspaper and earn the $125." wrote Peter B Young, correspondent for the paper. "But that little chunk of Americana -- the newsboy -- is no more... But then it occurred to an editor that maybe, just maybe, this gutsy kid might be worth a little story, an Horatio Alger-type story in which an 11-year-old boy with plenty of intestinal fortitude walks into a newspaper office and asks a bunch of strangers for a job." Yes, Josh is worth a story.

Nadine McNeil, President of Miss Mary Mac's Homemade Ice Cream Toppings Company, was developing a fundraising program to be released in mid-August. "The story of Josh made me realize how important it is to have programs in place that can directly benefit my community. I have lived in Marlborough for 20 years and I know what good people we have. There were times when I didn't have enough money for my kids either. Every child deserves to have a chance and money should not be a factor when you are eleven." commented McNeil. The fundraising program release date was bumped up and released on Wednesday July 21. "I immediately wrote to the newspaper and offered Josh and anyone else needing assistance with procuring funds for Pop Warner my commitment to help."

Miss Mary Mac's local and national fundraising program is easy to use and based on catalog sales and internet sales. Drop shipment for internet sales makes it easy on children and parents because there are no huge boxes of products to sift through, distribute and collect funds. It is all done through Miss Mary Mac's headquarters in Marlboro. Turn around time on distribution is minimal which allows groups to set their own goal dates. Ice cream toppings are made-to-order, contain no additives or preservatives and are heat sealed for freshness. And best of all profits are 50%.
