The MOMS Club of Schertz Area embraces its responsibility to
complete service projects. While all MOMS Club chapters are required to do one
service project each year, the MOMS Club of Schertz has reached out to support
our community and others in multiple ways; often completing four or more
service projects each year! The more involved our MOMS are in our communities,
the more opportunities that we see to make a difference in both the lives of
others as well as in the lives of our friends and families. Here are a few
things that the MOMS Club of Schertz have completed in the past year:
Food Donations to the RACAP: Every year we collect food for
Randolph Area Christian Assistance Program (RACAP), a non-profit organization
that provides food, prescription medications, and rent and utilities assistance
to individuals who are in need. They help feed over 135 families in a
month within our local area. Jessie Fisher, the Program Director, gave us a
tour of the facilities and storage rooms. The food pantry is a vital resource
to those individuals in our community who may otherwise go hungry.
Schertz Public Library: Every year we make a donation to the
Schertz Public Library to purchase books for the Children's Library. The
MOMS Club then organizes a "Sticker Party" where stickers were placed
in the books that say, "Donated by
the MOMS Club of Schertz."
Mother to Mother fund: This fund is the only charity sponsored by
MOMS Club International. This exemplary charity is committed to helping its
members receive speedy monetary assistance in the event of a tragedy such as
natural disasters, personal emergencies, and other catastrophic events.
In the past, the MOMS Club of Schertz donated $650 to aid those affected
by the devastating wildfires that burned over 300 homes in Bastrop, TX.
Holiday Program: In December 2014, MOMS Club of Schertz adopted two single parent families. Many
of our MOMS Club members worked together to purchase and
coordinate the giving of these gifts.
