MOPS group donates
The local Mothers of Preschoolers, or MOPS, group of Iron Mountain reached out to share love on Valentine’s Day. The group collected donations of basic essentials and treats from their MOPS members as well as local churches to create Valentine bags that were donated to Caring House residents. “I wanted our group to focus outward in giving love, and this service project was a great way to physically show support to those who will benefit from a small surprise of love this Valentines Day,” said Stephanie Raboin, MOPS coordinator. “Our group was also challenged after learning that the Caring House is always in need of the many basic essentials we use at home each day. Our community can easily show support and love by providing these donations to them especially since they have a drop-off door that is open 24/7.” MOPS is a Christian-based group of mothers that meets locally twice a month at First Covenant Church in Iron Mountain.
