We started off August with a donation delivery to Virginia Garcia’s Women’s Clinic in Hillsboro. This was our third delivery to them this year! We love supporting the amazing work they do at VG. Moms receive an In Kind gift box during their postpartum care visit there based on need.
Another organization we donated to this month was The Mother and Child Education Center. The women there have been working extra hard during COVID, offering support in a variety of ways. The Mother and Child Education Center provides prenatal & parenting classes, supplies such as diapers, clothing and food, and access to additional resources through community partners. They strive to empower clients to gain healthy parenting habits, to understand safe sleeping for infants; and to achieve personal goals such as self-sufficiency, a healthy environment for children, and a voice for advocating for themselves and their children.
We started a new partnership with Road to Hope. Road to Hope provides housing, help and hope to pregnant mothers in crisis. We love that they offer moms emotional support, help them set and achieve personalized goals, and address barriers to their success. They provide the connections to needed community resources and walk alongside our mothers on their Road to Hope.
Another thing we love to do besides donation deliveries, is host giveaways!! This month we were so grateful to partner with Cat & Nat, and offer a signed copy of their MomTruths Game along with one of our gift boxes. It means so much to us when people want to support our mission to help moms.
This month we also had the pleasure of attending the opening of OnPoint Community Credit Union in Sherwood. There we were presented with a donation for $2500. We’re so grateful to have local businesses in our community who care so much about giving back.
During August we registered for the #BeKind21Challenge. We look forward to sharing our daily acts of kindness in September. Go to the Blog post dedicated to the event for more information, and to print your copy of our kindness calendar.
We’re regularly asked how people can support us. There are several ways, and not all of them cost money, only a moment of your time.
*Donate- we rely on funding to purchase the supplies that go into our boxes. We are a volunteer run organization, so all funds we receive go directly back to furthering our mission to help moms.
*Purchase- our shop has three items available for purchase. If you don’t know anyone who is expecting, but would like to order something, our “You are loved” sticker is a great option.
*Add us to your Amazon Smile account. The Amazon app even allows for you to add your amazon smile recipient. Find that option under settings.
*Host a Facebook birthday fundraiser for us. Help spread awareness for In Kind, and raise money for a great cause!
*Support us on social media. Follow along with us on Instagram or Facebook, and like or comment on our posts.
Thank you for following along with us, and for your continued support!
