It is October and the MoMM Foundation is excitedly looking forward to our annual Holiday Blessings program!! Through the generous support of the Westerville Jaycee Pool, their lodge will be transformed into our "North Pole" which will be the central "home" of our endeavor!

MAKING MEMORIES

TOUCHING HEARTS

HOLIDAY BLESSINGS

This is our theme for this year. Over the years, we have come to KNOW and BELIEVE that caring and kindness offers the gift of HOPE. The MoMM Foundation would like to offer this message while making memories and touching hearts.
Are you that person that needs the gift of hope?
Do you know of a family that needs the gift of hope?
Are you the person who would like to offer the gift of hope to another in need?
is your organization looking for a service opportunity (volunteer hours, collection of items, support for a family)
We welcome you into our "MoMM" Family!

Christmas in July "Family Fun Night"



Joy was in the air and lights were twinkling at our 2nd annual fundraiser that supports our holiday blessings program! Family fun was had by all...a bounce house, giant slide, face painting, open swim, cookie decorating, shopping for the needy and a Christmas craft were highlights of the event! Also a surprise appearance from Santa...who was more than happy to take photos with young and old! Tickets were sold for our gift card raffle...where individually wrapped boxes of gift cards were given away hourly! ($25-$50 value per box!). It was a great night of fun for all!

Huge thanks to Papa Johns, westerville Jaycee Pool, HMB, Meijer, Cheryl’s cookies, Giant Eagle, Games2u and 104.9 the River...the generous sponsors of our event! Because of YOU coats, pajamas, hats and gloves, socks and underwear will be given to children in need this upcoming holiday season!

Vision

The Miracle of Mom's Memory (MoMM) Foundation is dedicated to non-judgmentally executing the teachings contained in the Beatitudes in support of those in need in our community.

Mission

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.

Objective

MoMM is a group of people who believe it is each person's responsibility to serve others and who choose to do so in memory of a loved one that has gone before us. MoMM's 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.

Needs Fulfilled

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.

Stories of Community Giving

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...
