Christmas 2016 Thank You! 

The need for our services went up by 200% in the last two years and we are truly thankful for all of the donations that came in to help meet the needs of the families we support.  We put out a call for help and you listened.

We are very grateful for the support including those who dropped off hamper items, adopted families, brought in diapers and formula and to all of the volunteers who made it happen. 

Thank you for making what started as one of the hardest winters we have been through end as one of the most magical Christmas seasons Made by Momma has ever had!

We're Renovating
Made by Momma is excited to be starting phase one of a renovation that will take our existing Resource Centre to a whole new level.  Function and Space are key features to the new design.  The new layout will provide space for a hamper packing area and the kitchen renovation will allow for larger group cooks to help us meet the increasing need for meals.
While much of this renovation has been provided for by grants and donations, there are still items that we are working hard to raise the funds to cover. If you are able to help support this exciting project at our Resource Centre please donate today or email to find out about sponsorship opportunities.
