Holiday Blessings served 58 Families & over 200 Children!
We are proud to share that our 2014 Holiday Blessing initiative served more members of our community than ever before! Through donations, our volunteers, and the generous offering of gifts from our MoMM members and strangers, the MoMM Foundation was able to provide Thanksgiving and Christmas to 58 Families and over 200 Children! We are thankful for the generosity of all those who helped make this year our most successful one yet!
A special thank you to Cindy Hickey for her tireless efforts, positivity and organization!
The MoMM Foundation is celebrating 10 years of service!
In celebration of this milestone moment for the MoMM Foundation, we are seeking to build a 'memory garden' to honor the memories of loved ones we've serve. Conversations are underway with the Westerville Parks and Recreation Department to design and build the memory garden. We would love to have the participation and support of any and all members to help make this celebration possible! If you are interested or have a talent/skill you would like to share please contact Megan Polk at:

The Miracle of Momís Memory (MoMM) Foundation is dedicated to non-judgmentally executing the teachings contained in the Beatitudes in support of those in need in our community.
The Miracle of Mom's Memory is a community of caring people proactively fulfilling the needs of the less fortunate. We honor one person at a time and accomplish one act at a time.
MoMM is a group of people who believe it is each personís responsibility to serve others and who choose to do so in memory of a loved one that has gone before us. MoMMís objective is to address the needs of the poor, homeless, and less fortunate through mission-driven projects, information dissemination, and volunteering time in support of causes greater than ourselves.
Since its inception in early 2005, MoMM has raised thousands of dollars and has used that money to fulfill needs and transform lives. From donating a car to a man with no way to get to work, to securing a computer and academic software for a single mother of three, to furnishing school supplies to an eager but underprivileged 6th grader, MoMM has been there.

This Month's Highlight
A MoMM member was shopping for the 'fixings' and turkeys for our holiday blessings families at Meijer in Westerville. (MEIJER is a wonderful partner to MoMM!) Seeing a very full cart, a man approaches the member and asks if the purchase is for a local pantry. The member answers, 'no a small local charity'.
The complete stranger proceeds to walk with the member to the check out line and purchase the entire grocery cart full of potatoes, dressing, gravy, vegetables, sweet potatoes, whipped cream AND 30 turkeys!!
When asked if the foundation could send him a 'thank you' and tax donation form, the man nods 'no' and simply says..."I don't do charity for a thank you. God bless and Happy Holidays"
Thank you to the man in the store....An angel in the path of giving...
