Not too long ago during one of our book club meetings, we discussed something other than our book (shocker!). With wine flowing, we discussed the possibility of forming a mother’s club geared for working mothers. Almost one year later, the Greater Mercer Area Chapter (GMAC) of Mothers & More is now 27 strong and growing.
When we worked on developing this group, we decided our focus would be charity. Of course, the stresses of work and home balance along with the struggles associated with it are always on the forefront. However, each member is blessed and fortunate with fruitful careers and home life. It seemed only natural that we would pass it forward.
This spring, in conjunction with Mothers & More National, GMAC is sponsoring The Power of a Purse, a month-long program where we collect gently used purses and donate them to the Mercer County Dress for Success. What better way to raise both personal and community awareness of the financial vulnerability women face during motherhood, than during the month is which we honor mothers.
GMAC is collecting purses, wallets and items that are often found in our handbags, now through May 2nd. If you have these items and would like to help women are who just getting back on their feet or returning to the workforce, please message me or use our drop off location.
Moms Helping Moms is how I was able to achieve what I achieved. It’s time to pass it forward. Join Me.
Location for drop off is at the Dance Expo on Route 130 in East Windsor Mon. thru Fri. 5pm-7pm and Sat. 10am-12pm.
