Thank you for your interest in supporting single mom families this Christmas season. As you may know, we usually collect gift cards to give to single moms so they can purchase gifts for their children. This year we will be doing the collection of gifts differently.
We have unexpectedly received the blessing of being the recipients of Books-A-Million’s (B.A.M.) annual Christmas drive! From November 15th to December 19th, B.A.M. will be collecting purchased books, games, and toys from their customers. They will be giving all of these items to Single MOMM. We will be using these items at our Christmas event, allowing single moms to provide gifts for their children.
If you have already purchased gift cards for single moms, it is okay! We will still need some gift cards. If you have not purchased gift cards yet, please consider one of the following options as an alternative way to support single moms this Christmas season:
Shop at BAM From November 15th to December 19th donate a gift to a single mom family in our organization
Give a gift that gives all year: $24/mo support a single mom so she can support her own family
