In December of 2019 a friend donated $500. With the $500 we took 5 mothers and grandmothers shopping at Walmart. They were free to pick any items, but were told that the items had to be for them. They picked things such as undergarments, socks, shirts, pants, and toiletries. What they chose told me (Kristin) that these funds were needed to cover basic daily items. It showed that these things were chosen out of necessity, not just want.
We would like to duplicate this effort and reach more women who are raising or helping to raise children. Our aim is to raise $100 for 100 moms in need within our community. The same rules apply: purchase for themselves because they so rarely get the option to do so. Extra money tends to go to their children/familial needs.
