2016 Mother’s Day Brings Joy to Families in Need

Spreading joy and hope to our families in need is a high priority at Integrated Family Community Services and with this in mind, plus the fact 76 percent of our families served are single mothers, the Mother’s Day program was created. Now in its second year, the Mother’s Day program brought together 82 volunteers contributing 170.4 hours in order to distribute gift baskets and food to 168 moms.

Mother’s Day was established as a National Holiday by President Woodrow Wilson in May 1914 promoting peace by honoring mothers of sons who were lost at war. Today, Mother’s Day traditions include delivery of carnations and family dinners.

These hard workers are likely not celebrated for their family contribution on this specific holiday set aside to honor them. So, in 2015, IFCS embarked on our first annual Mother’s Day enrichment program.

For several months in advance of Mother’s Day, IFCS taps into many community partners, including service clubs, churches, businesses and civic organizations to back the project by collecting non-perishable food items or making monetary donations to IFCS’ Mother’s Day Fund. To supplement the non-perishable food items, a frozen chicken and a loaf of bread are added to the boxes.

Every year our Mother’s Day program grows and with your help we can continue to help give thanks to Mother’s in need. Thank you for your support!
