GIVING BACK – Some of us have been fortunate enough to have had strong and enduring foundations in our
formative years. These experiences, together with our education have lead us to careers that enable us to provide
for our ourselves and our families. At OMG, we are women that are committed to giving back to our community.
Outstanding Mothers’ Gathering is a proud supporter of Alexandria House based in Los Angeles.
Alexandria House is a non-profit transitional residence and house of hospitality
providing safe and supportive housing for homeless mothers and their children.
OMG facilitates volunteering and giving to Alexandria House in the following ways:
- GIVING – Books, toys, used clothing, medical supplies etc. At each of our themed events, our members are directed as to the items that we are looking for. We ask our members to bring these items to our events and in turn they are distributed to those that are in need.
- VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES – OMG is dedicated to providing volunteer opportunities for you to participate in WITH your children. Whether it’s cooking a meal with your children to eat with the residents of Alexandria House, or mentoring a homeless mother on breastfeeding techniques or how to interview for a job (while your child plays in a safe playground with other children at the facility), we help facilitate the opportunity.
- ANNUAL CHARITY EVENT – OMG hosts an annual charity event whereby the proceeds are donated to Alexandria House to continue the great work that they are doing within the community.
…. FROM ALEXANDRIA HOUSE
Top Chef – The number one requested volunteer service is cooking for a night. It is a wonderful treat for women living in the house when volunteers come to cook dinner. Just like you, they have busy days with work, school and kids and can use a “night off” every once in a while. Bring food in, cook in our kitchen…make it work for you knowing that it will definitely work for us!
Thrift Sale – Please don’t forget our neighborhood thrift sale when cleaning out your closets or updating your décor. We will gladly take your gently used items and turn them into profit for the house!
After-School & Teen Programs – We always need volunteers to help with our programs for children and youth. You don’t need special skills or equipment, just bring your love of children, learning and play.
