This outreach program was created by 3 of our church members to help families in our community. We gather baby/children items from our church members as well as community members who are willing to donate to the program. We organize these items for children and babies and allow individuals who need to access them to come in and pick out what they need at no cost.
Mom to mom box
Starting SEPTEMBER 2023 Mom Box hours will be changed to every consecutive Tuesday/Wednesday from 930am-1230pm of every month.
Hi! My name is Faith. I am a mixed media artist, and a mental health advocate! I am a proud mother of some wild twin toddlers. Over the last few years my family has struggled and we have used community resources which have gotten us through so much. Now that my family is back on our feet, I am now able to give back to our community however I can. Last year Rebecca and I were dreaming of starting this program, and thanks to our amazing church as well as welcoming Megan onto the team, we have been able to make the dream a reality. I can’t wait to see how this program grows and evolves.
Hi there! My name is Rebecca Rudisill! I grew up in Hamilton and moved to Fort Erie about 3 years ago and love it here. Everyone has been very kind and welcoming especially at Trinity Lutheran church. I have a 6 year old son and a 3 year old daughter and there have been times we struggled and resources were not always easy to find but places like the church helped us. We have met so many loving and wonderful people and want to give back to our community and help other families.
Hello, I'm Megan. My husband and I have two children, one boy and one girl. My family has been fortunate enough to support our babies since they've been born, however I understand that that is not always everyones reality. Raising children is not an easy task. My Mom has always said "it's the hardest thing you will ever do but also the most rewarding" and nothing has ever been more true. Parenting and trying to teach your children to be good humans is hard enough. Creating this program is just our way of trying to release a part of the stress and filling that void with some connection.
Our mission is to support families who are in need within our region by offering baby/child items at no cost, ultimately creating opportunity for families to use their finances in other areas as needed.
who can access
Anyone who believes they are in need of our program is allowed to access it. We do not have criteria that our families need to fit into. As well, it is not only Mom's that are able to access, we understand that all wonderful families can look differently.
We will require information from someone who accesses our program, however that information will be kept confidential.
when is it
Mom Box staff are available to help caregiver's get what they need from the items that are available to them starting March 2023. The church will be open for this program to run every first consecutive Tuesday and Wednesday of every month (new times starting September 2023) from 9:30am-12:30pm.
