♥ 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?

COVID-19 – A message to our community

It is in the words of Mayor Nenshi with “Clean Hands. Clear Heads. Open Hearts” that Made by Momma is navigating the novel coronavirus.

Thank you Kin Calgary!

Oh where to begin our love letter to the amazing community of KIN…..
Well, truly it all starts with the Kinette Club of Calgary who completed a volunteer project for us, way back in June of 2012. Their group saw a need that we had and spent a weekend cooking up HUGE batches of Chicken Cattatorie for the families we help. There was a little bit of a disaster when the meals arrived….. but that’s another story….

To our valued Made by Momma supporters,

We want to wish you a heartfelt Happy Holidays and thank you for all of your support in 2017.

With your support we showed families in our city that they are not alone during challenging times. The families who came to us this past year had nowhere else to turn and we are grateful to everyone who helped us be there when their needs were greatest.

Thankful For Receiving A CREB Investing In Hope Grant

Made by Momma was honoured and ecstatic to be among the top 3 charities chosen by the CREB Charitable Foundation to receive an Investing in Hope grant. It was an extremely tough competition this year with an extensive application and vetting process. Made by Momma was among major inspiration and really felt like “the new kid on the block” making the top 3 with established charities Inn From the Cold and Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta. What a feat for us at only 7 years old!! We came in third and were awarded a grant of $75,000!!! This money goes directly to supporting our clients to help with food security and baby essentials.

Our 2016 Annual Report!

2016 was another incredibly busy year for our Made by Momma team! We experienced growth in many ways. We helped over 300 more families in 2016 than the previous year, our NICU Family Meals program has become fully integrated into the PLC and SHC hospital’s Neonatal and Intensive Care Units and The Happy Birthday Project hit the ground running, providing over 1000 birthday party packages to kids who would otherwise go without a celebration. We also had plenty of opportunities for community engagement and sharing our message.
