Moms Club of Oakland
Community Service Projects
Groups we have done projects with in the past:
The Brighter Beginnings mission is to support healthy births and successful development of children by partnering with parents and helping to build strong communities, gains its strength and aspiration from our core belief and vision that, every family matters, and every child deserves a happy, healthy future. The Moms Club of Oakland has generally done an annual "baby shower" for Brighter Beginnings.
Alameda County Community Food Bank passionately pursues a hunger-free community. The Moms Club of Oakland traditionally has done an annual food drive for the food bank.
The East Bay Children’s Book Project helps build literacy by putting books into the hands of children who have little or no access to them. Working through individuals and organizations who help children in need, we have given out more than a million free books since opening our doors in May 2005. The Moms Club of Oakland traditionally has done an annual used book collection for the project.
Oakland's Annual Earth Day Cleanup in April strives to help clean, green, and beautify Oakland at projects throughout the City's parks, streets, creeks and waterways! The Moms Club has participated in a child-friendly project in the past.
The Ecology Center partnered with One Warm Coat to host a winter coat drive this holiday season. They donated their collected coats to local organization Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency (BOSS), which serves homeless and recently homeless members of our community. The Moms Club of Oakland collected and donated close to 50 coats and other winter accessories to the coat drive in December 2014!
Some of us are moms to animals too :) We did a towel/blanket drive for the main animal shelter in Oakland. They always can use extra towels and blankets for cleaning, bathing, and bedding. We collected two large boxes of towels and blankets and donated them on January 10, 2014.
