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.
Together we helped provide meals for a family so that they could spend the last few precious moments together before cancer took their mother away; we held a newborn baby so mom could get some much needed rest after the birth of her twins; and we provided diapers, formula and baby essentials to help relieve the financial burden for a family after their father was taken from them much too soon; and we touched thousands of others lives in meaningful ways.
So thank you – thank you for all of your donations both financial and in-kind, thank you for all of the hours spent cooking, sorting, packing, delivering care packages, and thank you for reaching out to a mother in need and telling her that she is not alone.
As 2017 draws to a close we look forward to what the new year will bring. For Made by Momma, this will bring a year of change and growth as we write the next chapter in our story. For 8 years you have shown your trust and support in us to help mothers and their families during times of crisis and adversity; and now we are asking that you support us in taking the next crucial step to help families when they need it most. We’ve reached a critical stage where we must expand. We are currently renting 2 separate locations, plus 3 storage units to accommodate the tremendous need for our services. In order to become more efficient and meet the growing need for our programs, we have to renovate and add space to our Resource Centre. But we can’t do it alone. We need our village.
Every family we help has a story to share, and we want you to be a part of the next chapter in our story. We ask that you please help our Made by Momma team build #1MoreStory by making a charitable donation this holiday season.
