♥ October: The Gift of Warmth Donation Drive

Winter is coming! We won’t mention the “S Word”, but it sure is starting to get cold out there, and this Winter is predicted to be colder than average.

♥ July: 10 CAN Round Up Donation Drive

Round up 10 CANs (or more!) of our most needed non-perishables over the 10 days of Stampede!

Welcome to the Made by Momma 10 CAN Roundup! This is a simple grassroots effort to help others in our community when they need it the most. It has been a very challenging year for so many families, the demand for our services is at an all-time high, and our community pantry cupboards are bare. The Calgary Stampede is most often a time to whoop-it-up and enjoy the fun with friends and family – but for others, it can be a time of loneliness, sadness and stress if they are facing situations of adversity and crisis. We know it takes a village and together we can make a difference to these families.

♥ May: SUMMER FUN Donation Drive

It’s time for some SUMMER FUN! Soon kids will be out of school for the summer, and Mommas will be even busier trying to take care of little ones and entertain the big ones! Let’s help some families out and let’s get some kids outside! This month we are collecting outdoor toys and indoor activities for kids, toddler through school age. Hit up Walmart for their playground balls, soccer balls, hula hoops, skipping ropes and bubbles. What do your kids love to play with? What keeps your toddlers happy when you’re spending time in the summer sun? And don’t forget some rainy day fun!

♥ April: MOTHER’S DAY Donation Drive

Every mother deserves to be celebrated on Mother’s Day!
Help us make a difference this Mother’s day by donating new items for our special momma gift bags! Your generous donations will be given to single moms facing hardship and those staying in shelters.

♥ March: SNACKS for KIDS Drive

Did you know that in 2020, more than 1 in 5 Calgarians admitted they were struggling to easily buy food and groceries for themselves and their families? And the number of families who live with food insecurity on a regular basis continues to rise from 17% in 2017. Further, 43% of individuals who access Food Banks in Alberta are children.

♥ February: BABY HYGIENE DRIVE

There is nothing sweeter than the smell of a freshly bathed baby. Don’t you wish you could bottle that delicious scent?

February is the Month of LOVE, and Made by Momma is celebrating Baby LOVE!

♥ January: Feminine Hygiene Drive

Help us help underprivileged mothers and girls in need of a basic necessity: menstrual hygiene products.

For the month of January, we will be collecting all types of feminine hygiene products for the mothers we serve. It’s a fact that period poverty is a real thing. It’s a thing – right here in our city.
Lacking the funds to buy needed menstrual hygiene products is a challenge for many of the families we help. Can you imagine having to resort to using just toilet paper to manage your flow? How would that affect your ability to attend work or go to school?

Merry Christmas Calgary

THANK YOU Calgary! Once again you’ve helped us make Christmas happen for so many struggling Calgary families!
