MOMS (Mothers Offering Mentorship and Support) is supporting struggling young people in East Vancouver.
The programs run by MOMS, located at Grandview Church, make an incredible difference in the lives of those experiencing poverty, social isolation, familial instability, and health challenges. In past years, MOMS has organized the “Coldest Night Walk” to raise money, but this year MOMS will hand out Christmas bags.
UCV has been asked to help prepare gift bags filled with daily necessities, like grooming and food items, or even with some toys. MOMS is hoping for about 20 bags, big or small.
Here is a list of items that may be placed in the bags:
- coffee gift cards,
- small games,
- stamps and greeting cards,
- tea towels,
- simple jewellery, or
