Beautiful Mothers Day Gift To Give

I never really thought about Mothers who seek shelter from abuse with their children in Shelters. Until I talked to Barb Berson. She opened my eyes to what a few little things that you probably have laying around your house unused, can do to empower another Mother who would otherwise not be noticed on Mothers day. Hear the stories on my podcast, but here's some more information:

The Mother’s Day Gift Bag Project, now in its 29th year, provides lovely Mother’s Day gifts for women in a dozen shelters in the St. Louis area.For many of these women, it is the only gift they will receive.They are so grateful (receiving a “gift from the hearts of perfect strangers”), and their children are thrilled to have something to “give” to their mothers on this holiday.

This Sunday, May 5th, 2019, Traditional Congregation will be assembling 350+ gift bags for abused mothers and their children with the help and generosity of the community.

To help us provide this pick-me-up for these women in difficult circumstances, simply collect from your purchases or travels sample-sized toiletry and personal care items.

If you would like to help collect items this week, please try to sort your donations at home into zip-lock bags labeled “shampoo”, “conditioner”, “lotions”, hair products, sunscreens, etc.This helps save a lot of sorting time. This year we have enoughtoothbrushes, but could use more toothpastes, floss and mouthwash.If anyone has connections with businesses (like Avon, Mary Kay, or friends who work at any department cosmetic counters) that you could encourage to donate products (we seem to always be short on deodorants, cosmetics, and costume Jewelry).If anyone wants to make a financial donation they can write a check payable to Traditional Congregation Mothers Day Project, and we will use it to purchase missing items.

Donated items may be brought to Traditional Congregation

The comments on the thank you notes received in past years revealed that most of these women had never been treated respectfully or kindly on Mother’s Day.Thank you in advance for your help!!!
