Third Annual Care Packages for Care Givers - Mothers Day 2015

Join with me and AZ American Mothers by giving care packages to
a special group of moms during our 

3rd Annual 

Care Packages for Care Givers 

Mother's Day 2015

This year we are reaching out to the Autumn House, a domestic violence shelter in the East Valley. It is a part of A New Leaf Foundation and provides services such as: safe housing, meals, and basic needs; case management, financial coaching, and workforce development; childcare; counseling for like skills and educational classes. 

Our goal this year is to deliver at least 16 "Care Packages" to A New Leaf to be given to the moms in the Autumn House. We'd love to have your help. Your donations have brightened the day and made a difference in the life of a mom in a difficult situation in previous years and can do so again this year.

This is a smaller number of gift bags than last year or the year before, but our hope is to focus on a smaller group of moms in need. 

(You can read about the results of the 2013 project here and the 2014 project here.)  

To sponsor or pay for all the items needed for one care package: $25.00
A donation of any amount is truly appreciated.

If you'd like to donate individual items, see the instructions and list below.

Also, a heartfelt thank-you to all those who share this opportunity with friends and helped to spread the word!
