MOM 4 USA Volunteers Needed
January 19, 2011
Happy New Year! I hope you all survived the holiday season and are ready to get back on schedule. If you haven't been to our New Year, New Look website please do so now. Volunteers can quickly find the dates and information on this month's activities on the home page bottom right side. This is where to look every month. I will continue to send a reminder before the event via email.
Also added to the website is our new MOMs List feature. This is a place to post WHATEVER you have to give away to our wonderful military families. They will read the post and reply directly to you to make arrangements for picking up the items. I have been testing it for the last 2 weeks and it is really working well for both donors and families to connect. Please read the initial post for directions and rules (no selling/advertising please). And bring on the stuff!
Here are some things we need your help with immediately. Our pantry is bare but fortunately we have a North County-wide food drive scheduled for Feb. 12th. We need your group of 8 or more to work from 10-2 at a local Vons to collect food donations for MOMs food pantry. We are calling this one Show Your Love to Military Families so please help us make this a success by giving us a little of your time. All the stores are lined up, we provide the materials we just need your help for 4 hours on Saturday Feb 12. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP. We really need to lock down the volunteer groups and locations by early next week.
Saturday, January 22nd we will deliver food through our Mobile Food Pantry program. If you would like to participate show up at the MOM warehouse no later than 9:30. Directions can be printed from the website/mom information page at the bottom.
We need ladies to help with our January Baby Shower on Saturday Feb. 5th. We have 25 moms to be registered already and no hostesses! send me an email for more information. groups or individuals, no children please.
Mark your calendars now for February 26th food delivery - please give me a heads up if you plan to bring a group so we can schedule your participation.
I am looking forward to seeing all of the familiar faces and some new ones on Saturday.
Enjoy this wonderful San Diego weather.
