Mother’s Day Gift Basket Project

Help Us Reach Our 2018 Goal of 1800 Mother’s Day Gifts

Mothers Matter volunteers distribute thousands of beautiful gift bags/baskets overflowing with women’s personal care and beauty products for Mother’s Day to day care centers, pediatric hospital wards and medical day care facilities, women’s shelters and agencies and facilities such as Memorial Veterans Homes, Cooper Hospital Pediatric, Trauma, Oncology and NICU Wards, Anna’s Angels, Kennedy Health Center, Ronald McDonald House, My Sisters Place and Mercy Hospice.

Mothers Matter’s volunteers distribute thousands of beautiful gift bags/baskets overflowing with women’s personal care and beauty products for Mother’s Day.

The gifts are delivered to moms at: day care centers, pediatric hospital wards and medical day care facilities, women’s shelters and agencies and facilities such as Memorial Veterans Homes, Cooper Hospital Pediatric, Trauma, Oncology and NICU Wards, Anna’s Angels, Kennedy Health Center, Ronald McDonald House, My Sisters Place and Mercy Hospice.

Our annual goal has been to assemble and distribute between 2,000 and 2,500 beautiful gifts to brighten Mother’s Day for women in need. This year, however, we’re facing some unavoidable challenges, so we are setting a more achievable goal for our valued volunteers, donors and supporters.

We are now striving for 1800 gift bags/baskets to be delivered to those moms facing the greatest challenges.

Why 1800?

We started this effort in 2000, making 2018 our 18th year of service to the community! In addition, 18 is a significant number in the Jewish faith, representing the positive and uplifting word “life.”

Breathing New Life into our Mission

Mothers Matter Core Committee members begin preparing for the Mother’s Day project in September with letters to schools and businesses, about collection drives. In January, their volunteer commitments begin increasing from one day a week, to 4 or 5 days a week in April.

Area organizations and businesses such as the Beneficial Bank, Haddon Fortnightly END, Trinity Church Women, Kadar Orthodontics, Campbell Soup, Rowan College, Women’s Leadership, NAWBO. Loyal Order of the Moose, and others, hold collection drives and spend wonderful days volunteering at Mothers Matter making gift bags. Additionally, Mothers Matter gets a huge boost from our partner, Dollar Tree, to make sure we reach our goals.
