Students at the Paulsboro Head Start smile as they check out the gift bags, donated by Mothers Matter, that they will give to their moms for Mother’s Day.

This Mother’s Day, thousands of moms across South Jersey will have a special treat waiting for them on Sunday, courtesy of the Lauren Rose Albert Foundation’s Mothers Matter program.

While the mothers — who may be dealing with their children’s hospitalization, difficult family issues or just trying to make ends meet —  appreciate the gift bags chock full of beauty products and toiletries, they’re mostly taken aback by what the gifts mean —Thank you.

This year, the Mothers Matter volunteers—who rent out the old public works building in Washington Township to do their good works—will deliver nearly 2,000 gift bags to deserving mothers.
