MAMA cares Gets Off the Ground

MAMA cares Gets Off the Ground

April 29, 2015. That’s the first date that Robert J. and the MAMA Board members met to talk about a new program, MAMA Cares. It took most of the summer and fall to talk through the intent of MAMA Cares and to develop guidelines and a request form. A new page was also developed for the MAMA website.

Plans were immediately drawn up for a Valentine’s Day fundraiser to kick things off followed by a city-wide fundraising campaign over Mother’s Day weekend.

At the annual MAMA Awards show on July 12, there was a concerted effort to raise funds and the hat was passed. The result was over $600 in contributions that added to the seed money started by Robert’s family and MAMA, Inc.
