The opportunity to serve their community especially during the holiday season inspired all of them help out on Saturday. They even had a few little helpers from Troop 41253 in Summit. Brownies Nadia Moghal and Chloe Freeden were very excited to sort baby items in the appropriate sized bins. The young helpers were so surprised on how tiny the preemie clothing was.  

Moms Helping Moms Foundation has volunteer opportunities at their warehouse throughout each month at 22 Howard Street, North Plainfield.  You can get more information on how to volunteer or donate from their website www.momshelpingmomsfoundation.org.
