Moms on A Mission for Hurricane Sandy

Moms On A Mission….

Are you a mom in need because of Hurricane Sandy? We want to help – mom to mom. If you have a need, email us and we will try to find another mom to match you up with to help. Are you or your kids in need of clothes? Do you need toys for your kids? Is your stroller gone?

We think there’s no better way to help then to match moms up so everyone can do their little part to help each other — mom to mom, family to family. If you’re a mom that wants to help — let us know!

Please understand that we can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to find a suitable match, volunteer or donation, but we will try!

    I am a childrens entertainer. If you know of a place that has groups of children that could use some humorous relief at this time as a distraction for the kids, please email me.

      Queens College has a make-shift family center for families from The Rockaways. I know they were looking for someone to entertain the kids during the day. (recreation, shows etc)

    Hi,

    I live in Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island and know first hand the destruction of Sandy having lived through it. My family was fortunate enough to live through the storm with only power outages and some property damage, nothing more. there are those who have lost everything and I would like to help. I have toys, clothing for children (I have a 6 year old boy and a 2 year old girl). I also have extra furniture and kitchen appliances to give, all in great condition. I can give gift cards to clothing stores and food. Our family would like to help! Please reach out to me with a family in need to sponsor. Thank you for spearheading this and helping, this is a great way to reach out.

    Best,

    Sierra Mittleman

    I live in central New Jersey and would love to help, is there anyone that has a special needs child? I have an expensive stroller for a moderate to severe challenged child. Please let me know who I can help. We are still without power but I hope we will get some soon and then I can be of more help.

    I live in Huntington and have an 8 month old son. We still have no power, but that is the only inconvenience we have suffered. I know that my biggest concern when the storm him (other than our safety) was getting my deep freezer full of breast milk that I worked so hard of months of pumping to make, to a safe place where I could keep it cold! We have a friend who never lost power and who was gracious enough to let us use both of her freezers to store milk. Long story short, I would love to help connect with other moms to coordinate feeding supplies for those who have lost it. Nursing is such an emotional and precious time with your baby I would hate to see other moms not be able to continue or to not be able to provide breast milk for their babies because of Sandy. Pumping in the dark with the battery back up to my pump and storing milk in a cooler bag on my deck is not something that I will soon forget. I would love to help coordinate donations and distribution.

    I live in Rockville centre and grew up in Baldwin so I’ve seen a lot of the devastation on the south shore first hand and I’d love to help. I have two daughters – a 3 yr old daughter and an 8 week old. I have lots of stuff that I’d be willing to donate. My family also has various home items that we can give away. Pls match me w/ a family. Thanks!

    Love the idea. We actually have a FB group of moms from my town which has over 900 members, started before the hurricane. It has been so helpful with sharing information, supporting one another, finding needed supplies for people and helping each other and others–especially during the hurricane.

    When choosing a wintertime ladies coat try and select a style that may be both casual and also dressy. Whilst this might appear difficult in the first instance with a little online searching in the internet boutiques you should find the ideal garment. It’d be a good idea to begin purchasing the clothes you need before the winter season really comes. After the start of the winter season and the chilly winter weather arrives lots of the recognized brands could well be sold out so jump in early. Winter fashions 2012 for women are present in the on-line and offline boutiques as I write so pick your selections carefully and make sure to be warm and furthermore fashionable.,
