MOMS Club Gives Back To The Community

Natomas Mom’s Club, Natasha Stankiewicz donating to WEAVE’s Development Associate, Michelle McCauley

The MOMS Club, Greater Natomas chapter recently made a much-needed donation to Women Escaping a Violent Environment (WEAVE), a provider of crisis services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Sacramento County.

The moms group’s donation was specifically for WEAVE’s Safehouse, an emergency shelter where women and their children can escape unsafe homes. The donation included a highchair, a car seat, and a portable crib — altogether about $200 worth of equipment.

Recent budget cuts have severely affected WEAVE’s programs. The items donated rank in the top three needed by the organization which also provides prevention and education programs.

The MOMS Club, Greater Natomas chapter also donated the following school supplies to American Lakes Elementary School: 1 pack notebook paper, 7 folders, 4 boxes of facial tissue, 4 packs of highlighters, 2 backpacks, 24 boxes of crayons, 2 rulers, 4 packages of pens, 2 boxes of pencils, 2 scissors, 2 boxes of erasers, 2 pencil/crayon sharpeners, 2 calculators, 2 packs of glue sticks, 2 notebooks, 3 boxes of paper, 2 HP ink cartridges 92 and 93.

MOMS Club International is a non-profit support group for stay-at-home and working mothers that emphasizes the importance of community service projects.
