Looking back over our past year, MoverMoms has so much to be grateful for, but mostly we want to take this time to thank YOU!

You have given 2000 hours of your time to nurture our community
...............................................................................Thank You For Your Time!

What started as a handful of Moms serving dinner to the residents of The Children's Inn at NIH back in 2007 now has well over 200 members, participating as your time allows, and as projects resonate with you ...........................................Thank You For Your Energy!

You provided mock job interviews for inmates in both Howard and Montgomery counties; you offered Donuts & Discussion at the men's shelter Carroll House; you celebrated birthdays at the Community Vision shelter; you came together to nurture and be nurtured at our 3rd annual Inspiration Day; you participated in fundraising activities for, and then made 2 trips to, El Salvador (winter trip to orphanage; summer trip to school) as part of the Montgomery Sister Cities Program; you helped clean up your community along Sangamore Road in Bethesda with your commitment to the Adopt-A-Road program; you collected fresh food at the Farmer's Market for Manna Food and you offered Cupcakes & Conversation at the Wilkins Avenue Women's Assessment Center
..........................Thank You For Making a Difference in Our Communities!

MoverKids sang the national anthem and their families had a blast at the Big Train baseball game, and you had 3 fabulous book club evenings, sharing delicious home cooked Haitan, Indian and Iftar foods to set the perfect mood for your discussions of To Repair The World, by Dr. Paul Farmer, Behind The Beautiful Forevers, by Katherine Boo and I Am Malala, by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb ...............................Thank You For Your Company!

Also this past year saw Rebecca Kahlenberg move from the position of Executive Director to member of our Board of Directors, and Deb Lang take over as Executive Director.........................................................Thank You For Your Leadership!

We expect next year to be all that this year has been...and then even a little bit more!! You can help us get there:

  • send us your ideas!
  • take charge of a project that you would like MoverMoms to take on!
  • commit to one of our on-going projects!
  • keep reading what we send out, and jump in whenever you see a good fit!

We always welcome you (and your kids) and look forward to seeing you soon! Have safe travels if you will be traveling, and enjoy your Thanksgiving!!
