MOMS Club support New Beginnings and Toys for Tots

Movie Ticket Fundraiser update:
We raised $101.40 for New Beginnings. Plus a $1 donation from Mandy for a super grand total of. $102.40. The fundraiser may be repeated in the spring.

Original post November 8, 2012:
At the Members' Social in November, we voted to have the income from our movie ticket sales go to New Beginnings and to additionally collect new, unwrapped Christmas gifts for our local U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.

For those of you who are still unfamiliar with the movie ticket fundraiser, here is the short version:
  • You collect orders from your network on discounted movie tickets to Marcus Theatres (like our local Parkwood 18) or gift cards that can be used at theaters or resorts.  Think your book club or emails to friends and family who may be interested in giving the tickets as Christmas gifts, to employees, teachers etc.
  • Turn in your movie tickets sales by December 5.
  • Get the tickets the next week at the Members' Social holiday party, Thursday, December 13. 
You may also bring your new, unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots to any board member or to the December social.

Thank you for your support in our giving and sharing to other moms and children. We're so proud that we as MOMS Club get the opportunity to support other moms in the area too.
