MOMS CLUB BABYSITTER MEET AND GREET
In the spring of 2016, we hosted a babysitter meet and greet. This was a great opportunity for babysitters to come out and meet potential families who were looking for someone to watch their kids. We had a great turnout and are hoping to do this again at some point!
MOMS CLUB INTERNATIONAL REGIONAL LUNCHEON
In April 2015 we traveled overnight to New Jersey to attend the Regional Lucheon for our area. We were able to meet other moms from the Northeast and listen to several speakers including the founder of MOMS Club. We had a womderful lunch and brought a display all about our club. We learned a lot and also donated a raffle basket. Proceeds go to support the Mother to Mother Fund, used to help MOMS in need.
CRAYONS FOR CANCER
This winter, we collected used and broken crayons from our local schools, libraries, and at our meetings and events to donate to Crayons for Cancer. They take the used crayons and melt them down to make new crayons, which they sell to make money for cancer research. Visit their website to learn more.
Thank you to everyone who donated socks to our sock drive! We collected over 100 pairs of socks that we donated to a local shelter.
We plan to do this again next year, so start collecting your socks!
ST. JUDE GIVE THANKS WALK
November 22, 2015
This year's team again managed to raise over $1,200 with the support of family and friends. We walked in the cold to give thanks for the healthy kids in our lives this holiday season. Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our fundraising goals!
Walk for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Last year, our group participated in the annual Walk for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Our team raised $1,211 dollars!
This winter, we raised money to purchase fleece fabric to make blankets for Project Linus. They were donated to the Connecticut Children's Medical Center in Hartford to provide comfort to families and children.
We formed a team to walk in Johnny's Jog, a local St. Patrick's Day 5K fundraiser to help several local charities.
Every year we raise money to donate to local causes such as AHM in Hebron, the MOMS Club Mother-to-Mother Fund, and more. Your membership dues go to helping us fund these projects and more to come.
