For those who can, neighbors are invited to supply any materials they can in order to free up resources for others who may be unable to do so. However, material and monetary donations given by neighbors are strictly voluntary and are not required or expected by OMP. These donations are not solicited by OMP, but are graciously received if given.
The majority of our funding comes from the campers. Campers pay tuition to work in Arkansas communities for a week of their summer vacation. College students also pay tuition for their trip.
OMP’s college-aged staff raise a portion of their salary. They are paid a stipend plus mileage.
Individuals, Businesses, Civic Organizations, Churches
OMP labor is free, but materials are not. Individuals and local business across the state have graciously supported OMP with financial and material donations which enable us to complete 40-60 projects at each camp.
The price of materials is ever increasing. Each donation enables OMP to save money for the next camp and take on another small project for a neighbor.
