Donation drive April 15 – May 5

Join us as A Mother’s Keeper collects items for the care packages for Mother’s Day deliveries!
This Mother’s Day our goal is to assemble and deliver 500 care packages to mothers who are caring for their hospitalized child. We visit and deliver care packages to moms at Memorial Regional, VCU, St. Mary’s, Chippenham, Henrico Doctors and more. Where we can, we hand-deliver the packages to moms who’s child is in the NICU, PICU and pediatric units. Being a mom is hard, but being a mom of a sick child is even harder. We are asking for your help in making their day a little brighter, by reminding them that the community cares!

We will be partnering with Positive Hits WPER radio to make several donation drop-off sites available throughout the Richmond and Fredericksburg area. Below is a list of items we commonly include in the care packages:
Pattern coloring books
Colored pencils and sharpeners
Full-size candy bars
Coffee mugs
Water bottles
Journals and notebooks
Hand-written cards and notes of encouragement
Instant coffee
Water enhancers
Jewelry such as necklaces and bracelets
Crossword, Word Find or Sudoku books
Bath bombs
Soaps and scented lotions
Hand sanitizer
Snacks such as potato chips, pretzels and Veggie Straws
Bottles of water
Socks and slipper socks
Gift cards
Jarred candles
Manicure sets
Makeup items such as mascara and lip gloss

We are beyond grateful to the following businesses who opened their doors to receive donations to support our mission. Our goal this year is to pack and deliver 500 care packages that will bring a bit of comfort to moms who are spending Mother’s Day in the hospital with their sick child.

We need your help! Your cash and item donations will go a long way in helping our local (and beyond) NICU, PICU and inpatient pediatric moms this Mother’s Day.
