Suited For Work

The Suited for Work initiative began in 2011 to help economically disadvantaged women in need of career-oriented apparel for that all-important job interview, day-to-day work needs once they got the job or just to help fill-in critical clothing needs for women with nowhere else to turn for help.

Between 2011 and March, 2020, Suited for Work provided new and gently-used career clothing for hundreds of women who could otherwise not afford them. The program was relocated to Rowan College at South Jersey and Camden County College in March due to space issues at Mothers Matter headquarters.

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)
