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.
