Mothers Matter Year Round

The Lauren Rose Albert Foundation partners with community service agencies, organizations, hospitals and social service agencies to provide Mothers Matter gift bags to women facing difficult challenges throughout the year.The Lauren Rose Albert Foundation partners with community service agencies, organizations, hospitals and social service agencies to provide Mothers Matter gift bags to women facing difficult challenges throughout the year; gift bags are also provided to individuals upon request.

Mothers Matter volunteers assemble “custom” gift bags that reflect any special needs of recipients. As example: writing journals are included for moms with children at CHOP, gift bags destined for Virtua/Fox Chase cancer patients contain unscented products, warm socks and our soft pillows. Playing cards and puzzle books are included in our mini-bags for Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and CHOP oncology outpatient clinics and MD Anderson/Cooper radiation patients receive our “Go Get ‘Em Girl” gift bags.

For women facing economic difficulties, family illness, tragedy or critical quality of life issues, Mothers Matter gifts offer a ray of sunshine and a message of caring and comfort – that “Mothers Matter”.

The Lauren Rose Albert Foundation provides Mothers Matter gift bags throughout the year to Children’s Hospital ( CHOP ) Oncology and Transplant Units, Our Lady of Lourdes Health Systems Community Outreach, Mercy Hospice, Virtua/Fox Chase Cancer Program in Mt. Holly and Voorhees, People in Transition, MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper Hospital, Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia and Ronald McDonald House Family Rooms.

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)
