I am a member of our Ankeny MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) group. It is a faith-based mom's group that outreaches to local young moms. The motto is "no mom alone". I, of course, could not just attend but had to get involved on the leadership team. I currently do the curriculum for the children's programming. It is a great way for me to learn biblical teaching for children. I am learning a lot! I also got put in charge of decorating for our upcoming auction and organizing the baskets! This is what my backroom currently looks like. We have had so many generous donations and our group is so blessed. The money goes to offset childcare costs so that our moms can attend a meeting while their children are taken care of by quality staff.
Mommy and Me Basket (a mom in our group handmade a "mom" purse and two matching "kid" purses)...
The "Manpering" basket...haircuts, a massage, and hair products
There are over 60 baskets to be auctioned off on April 7th at our church in Ankeny at 5:30PM!
