The One Mountain Foundation accepts tax-deductible donations for the following Mountaintop community groups:

Help Hotline

The Help Hotline is a community resource serving our Mountaintop region.  In 2010, the Help Hotline assisted a total of 207 families, an increase above the pre-recession number of 131 families in 207.  Assistance was with food, rent, electric, clothing, and holiday dinners and presents, though the predominance of assistance was with food.  The regional Mountaintop churches lend their support through the donation of non-perishable food and paper products.

OMF provided assistance to the Help Hotline by conducting a Benefit Bingo in March 2010 to raise needed funds to allow the Director of the Help Hotline to purchase perishable food, like bread, milk and meat to provide to their clients with the canned and dry packaged food, and also for the purchase of paper products, like paper towels and toilet paper.

Tax-deductible donations can be made to the One Mountain Foundation; contributors should note that the donation is for the Help Hotline.  100% of the donation will be passed to the Help Hotline.

Hope Alive

Hope Alive, Inc. is a nonprofit Christian ministry called to embrace homeless women and their children with the life-changing love of God.  In partnership with the community, Hope Alive offers a transitional home and comprehensive support services to empower women and children with Christian values, dignity, and the skills they need to live self-sustaining lives filled with hope and a future.

Our members can help Hope Alive by giving financially or volunteering your time.  Becoming a prayer warrior or spreading the word about the needs through your friends, family, church and other community organizations are other ways to help.  To learn more on how you can help, e-mail volunteer@hopealiveministries.org or call 301-241-4005, ext. 302.  Contributors can also be made to the One Mountain Foundation and should note that the donation is for Hope Alive.  OMF will turn over 100% of the donation to the Executive Director at Hope Alive.

Cascade Elementary School PTA

The One Mountain Foundation is supporting the Cascade Elementary School PTA by accepting donations earmarked for PTA projects at the Cascade Elementary School.  Donations are tax-deductible and checks should be made out to One Mountain Foundation.  Contributors should note that the donation is for the Cascade Elementary School PTA.  OMF will turn over 100% of the donation to the PTA.

SIDS of Pennsylvania - Supporting Infant Death Survivors (Nina Rouzer)

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is:

  • The major cause of death in infants from 1 month to 1 year of age, with most deaths occurring between 2 and 4 months.
  • Sudden and silent - the victim was seemingly healthy.
  • Currently, unpredictable and unpreventable.
  • A death that occurs quickly, with no signs of suffering, and is usually associated with sleep.
  • A syndrome the first symptom of which is death.
  • Determined only after an autopsy, an examination of the death scene, and a review of the case history.
  • A post-mortem diagnosis established by exclusion.
  • A recognized medical disorder listed in the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision (ICD-9).
  • .An infant death that leaves unanswered questions and, thus, causes intense grief for parents and families.

The Pennsylvania SIDS Alliance began to fulfill its mission of support, education and research in 1981.  At that time, a group of SIDS parents joined together to assure future SIDS parents the support they would need to work through the devastating grief they would experience.

With the adoption of the Tree of Hope as their symbol, they remind one that even though the fallen leaf, symbolizing the lost infant, is separated from the family, the family can remain strong and continue to grow with the proper nurturing.  They have dedicated their lives to providing that nurturing.  The tree also symbolizes the many branches of their organization.  They continue their quest to eliminate Sudden infant Death
Syndrome and make an impact on infant mortality rates "in the belief that every child should live."
