Education Grants

Since the program’s inception in 2004, the Lauren Rose Albert Foundation has awarded over 750 education grants to single, head-of-household mothers at participating colleges to offset the cost of college textbooks. The Lauren Rose Albert Foundation now partners with social service agencies and financial aid officers to provide grants for textbooks and GED Tests on an individual basis. The Lauren Rose Albert Foundation continues to make a real difference in real lives – one mom at a time!

Gift Baskets Since 2001

25,000 Gift Baskets Given – 25K
75,000 Products Processed – 75K

More than 75,000 products are processed at the Mothers Matter headquarters in Sewell (Washington Twp.) each year; every item is carefully checked to make sure it is new and clean, sorted by color and then product type and either placed on shelves for immediate use or crated for temporary storage.

Every gift bag contains a minimum of ten basic products plus extra “special ” items depending on availability. Additionally, every gift bag is color coordinated and includes a note card with the message that “Mothers Matter”.

During the week prior to Mother’s Day gift baskets/bags filled with women’s health and beauty care products are distributed to day care centers, nursing homes, medical-pediatric day care and rehab facilities, women’s shelters and agencies, hospital wards and facilities such as Samaritan Hospice, My Sister’s Place, Robins Nest and the Memorial Veteran’s Home in Vineland.

Now a year round program with an average annual distribution of 5,000 gift bags, this all-volunteer effort has given out more than 25,000 gift baskets/bags. (In 2009 Mothers Matter gift bags replaced baskets)
