New Band Uniforms for 2020 Season!

“Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same.” – Schubert

We are so deeply humbled and honored by the generosity of our band families, friends and Mattawan community. We are excited and pleased to announce that The Mattawan High School Marching Band will be outfitted with New Uniforms for the 2020 Season!

Our deepest gratitude to all the donors who contributed to the MCS Day of Giving. A great Thank You also goes out to our generous private matching donor, who have asked for anonymity for their generous matching funds of $20,000; and also to our amazing local businesses who provided matching donations.

We would also like to thank our Legacy Walk donors for their patience and donations to our new uniform drive; and to Mattawan Schools Districts for taking care of the shipping cost for 240 new uniforms.

As of today, we have received the following:

  • MCS Day of Giving / Band: $50,050.00
  • Private Matching Donation: $20,000.00
  • Band Boosters Fundraisers (includes Legacy Walk): $20,000.00

Uniform Update:

  • Purchase order for 240 Uniforms submitted
  • Submit measurements by March 20th (It takes 180 days to complete and deliver the order)
  • We will be measuring uniforms for all current 8th – 11th graders for new uniforms in the 2020 season this week and next week.  If you are able to help, please signup here: http://bit.ly/3cJbBOD
