Part of being a better mom is making a better world. One way we can do that is to not only be the best mom to our children that we can be, but to help others through service.
We are currently preparing for the 2017 – 2018
year and will announce the Service Project at our first meeting of the year. If you have any suggestions or ideas of a service you would like to contribute, please contact us
with that suggestion, we would love to hear it!
In 2016 – 2017
we made 20 back packs for children coming into the Utah Foster Care System
. Each backpack contained: pajamas, underware, socks, a tooth brush, toothpaste, a blanket, a stuffed animal, a coloring book, a toy, and a snack. It may not seem like much to us, but to a child whose life just got flipped upside down it is a huge thing to know somebody, somewhere cared enough to give me these essentials!
In 2015 – 2016
we made wonderful bags for children who are coming through the Rescue Mission’s Women’s Center
. These children are homeless and we wanted to bring something to them. The bags included a coloring book, crayons, stickers, a toy, a few snacks and some other wonderful things just for them.
we worked with the Pregnancy Resource Center of Salt Lake City
. We made onesies as a gift to moms who are keeping their baby. We also wrote each mom an encouraging letter to help her as she begins her journey of motherhood or begins the journey with an infant again. The resource center offers a lot of benefits to struggling moms free of charge. Some of which include: pregnancy tests, limited ultrasounds, accurate information on all options, adoption assistance, material resources, and community networking for shelter and food.
Being in the thick of it all, we are always striving to love, encourage, and support one another. That being said, we strive to make a mom feel welcome, encouraged and supported. When a Mom is in need, whether it be sickness, new baby etc, we want to be there to support them through these tough times in any way we as a MOPS group can. Some of the best ways we can do this is through meals, cleaning their home, taking care of their children etc. If you are in need of assistance please contact us.
