Outreach

At Moms4Moms, we have a heart for outreach. We want to spread the love of Christ to our community, especially to families, through donations and projects. Our outreach coordinators choose a charity or cause each month to support, and we will let you know what we are collecting a month or so out. We collect new or gently used items, as well as monetary donations, based on need. See below to read about some of the great local ministries and causes we have supported!

Past and Current Outreach Partners:

030915_EmilyshappyfeetlogoEditWe have worked with Emily’s Happy Feet by collecting donations of new slippers. Emily Rose is a special girl with a rare terminal genetic disease. Spending much of her time in the hospital, Emily wished for soft, comfortable slippers. She tries to deliver slippers to each medical facility she visits. Though her health struggles have limited her activity, Emily’s bright smile and desire to bring comfort to other sick kids has touched our hearts, which is why we support this mission.

We believe giving to our community is an important and exciting component of our mission at Moms4Moms. Each month our group is invited to participate in an outreach opportunity either independently or as a table. We know we have moms from all walks of life in our group, so please only give as you feel led. If you’re unable to donate items, cash donations that go 100% toward the outreach recipient can be given at our monthly meetings via PayPal or the Square app.
