The Mississippi Safe Schools Coalition was the only Mississippi group participating this year. We raised over $500 in just 24 hours. Those funds are going to be used to help further our programs and projects, new ventures, and our internship program.
MSSC greatly depends on generous donations from our supporters. Just last year, our annual Queer Youth & Ally Summit cost just under $100 because of generous non-monetary donations from local businesses and volunteers. We appreciate all methods of giving.
