T-Shirt Needs MAT Camp

Donate Your T-Shirt!

We need one t-shirt from each of the past 25 years of MAT Camp. (Well, at least the years that had T-shirts.)

Do you have an old MAT Camp T-shirt, you’d like to donate? Will accept any size as long as it’s not too worn.

Text 3801-529-6841 for additional info, and to schedule delivery/pick-up options.
