Advocate Safehouse Project
  • A local non-profit  that strives to 'promote healthy relationships free from violence through education, advocacy, empowerment and safehousing.'
    • Glenwood Moms for Moms will be putting together gift bags for the women & their children.  
      • Many women who go into the safehouse used to pamper themselves and wish they could get back to that by painting their nails, wearing makeup, perfume and really just pampering themselves. 
      • Children & Adolescents  are also part of this program so with our gift bags we can include toys or books (these items can be gently used)
    • In addition to the women & children the Safehouse is continually in need of items that are necessary to maintain a household such as laundry soap, fabric softener, dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, aluminum foil and saran wrap, tupperware, cleaning supplies.

Cakes Helping Kids
  • Join Mom Member Janille Hudson & her family in their vision to help kids in need. They have chosen to help Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City, this holiday season by sending them medical play dolls to give back to a program that has helped their family in the past.  
    • Their goal is to be able to provide 100 or more dolls for Primary Children's and they will need our help to do this. The dolls are very simple to sew and can be made very inexpensively & kids LOVE stuffing them!! 
    • You can find the pattern & read more about Cakes Helping Kids by CLICKING HERE . 
      • These dolls can be dropped of at 3112 Hager Lane or at any our drop off points (to be announced)!
      • If you have any questions for this project you can contact Janille at  801-702-7600.
