MOM nation Serves the Community this Holiday Season ūüéĄ

“I never imagined we’d impact this many.  My heart swells with excitement and gratitude each and every time we come together and even more so when it’s to serve the needs of others in the communities that we raise our children in.” says Katie Lambert, Founder of MOM nation.

Throughout the Thanksgiving holiday the group participated in the 5k Turkey Trot in Gilbert, AZ.  The proceeds from the event were to benefit various children’s charities.

The group coordinates a monthly outdoor movie in downtown Mesa AZ that they call Movies on Main.  In November the donation drive was for dog food donated to local shelters.  In December the donation drive was for baked goods for Veterans in need.  The event is free to get in, open to the public, and provides safe, kid friendly entertainment to the community while benefitting many local small business owners and various local charities with donation drives.

To kick off the spirit of giving, the group participated in Operation Christmas Child 2017.   “20 of our beautiful Mama‚Äôs came together with their families to fill 100 shoe boxes with donated Christmas gifts for children to be delivered throughout the holiday season.” says Lambert. 

This past week MOM nation partnered with sponsors (Banks Craft Company and Team Evolution Real Estate) to provide a free and very festive holiday craft table for kids at the weekly Farmers Market in Downtown Chandler.  Next month at the market in Chandler, the group will be collecting donated items for local pet shelters and will be providing information on pet adoptions.  Roxy and the Loan Dog might even make an appearance!

On December 18th, Santa, Shondi Zwaschka,  Krista Puruhito and Katie Lambert will be delivering the gifts from the Adopt a Family drive.  The group donated gifts and will be providing a Christmas for 5 families.

In February of 2017 the group plans to participate in the Team Bradley Bear 5k.  This charity event is near and dear to one of the groups beloved members.

The Moms of MOM nation are incredibly passionate about uplifting and supporting each other and creating a positive impact to the members of the community.  For more details on our community efforts, click HERE to contact us.

MOM nation and Operation Christmas Child 2017

On November 12, 2016, 20 of our beautiful Mama’s came together with their families to fill 100 shoe boxes with Christmas gifts for children this coming holiday season.

Our very own, Robin Quallick, had this to say:

“I got to experience and be a part of something very special last night. ¬†I watched each of these families pour their love and generosity into every one of these shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child 2017. ¬†I am unbelievably humbled and beyond proud of you Moms for working hard and filling all 100 BOXES last night!!! ¬†And, thank you to my Mamas who graciously donated items even though they were unable to attend! ¬†100 Kiddo’s around the world will be touched this holiday season because of YOU guys!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!”
