Item Description

Support undocumented members of the MCS community in their quest for lawful residence in the U.S., while also supporting Manhattan Country School!

Your winning bid will secure the legal services of Sharon J. Phillips, Attorney at Law to prepare green card applications for an MCS community member and her spouse, who came to the U.S. more than 15 years ago and are finally eligible to apply for permanent status. She has worked for years as a caregiver, including to two MCS students and is also a talented painter. If you are the winning bidder, you will receive an original painting (pictured) in appreciation for your support of her family’s immigrant dreams and of MCS!

Item Special Note

Sharon Phillips also offers preparation of a naturalization application as a separate auction item that is available to members of the MCS community and to her own current and former clients.Two years ago, an MCS parent asked if parents could pool resources and bid for her services as a group, and then give the service to someone who needs it. That request inspired an auction similar to this one, in which MCS auction bidders sponsored an immigrant artist in a naturalization process. That artist is now a U.S. citizen!
