The Youth Ministry program at the Basilica Shrine of St. Mary is participating in the “Movers for Moms” community outreach program to support Moms on Mother’s Day in the Wilmington area. Please read the following description for details. Thank you in advance for helping us support our local Moms in need on Mother’s Day!!!

***First launched in 2007 by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, the Movers for Moms® program seeks to recognize moms in crisis on Mother’s Day by arranging delivery of gifts to women living in local shelters on the holiday weekend. In 2017, every TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® location participated and collectively gathered more than 295,000 donations for women living in shelters on Mother’s Day. We are asking for donations of essential care items, some examples of much needed items are: Shampoo, conditioner, full size bar body soap, children’s snacks, non-perishable food, diapers, new twin sheets, toilet paper, gift cards, gas cards, toiletries.

Collection efforts will begin in April and run through May 9th , when donations will be delivered to a local women’s shelter, The Open Gate.  A collection box is located in the parish office located in the Tileston Complex on the campus of the Basilica Shrine of  St. Mary.***
