The Brentwood Moms completed their annual turkey drive this week as they delivered turkey meals to local Head Start Preschool children and their families.
The program was made possible with participation from their members and Food Maxx. Many in the group considering themselves “blessed” to have an abundance in their lives and they take great pride in being able to give to those who may not have a turkey meal on Thanksgiving.
Nova Moore, president of the organization, says she finds a lot of value in this organization and how it supports its members, their families and our community.
“This year the “MOB” delivered 73 turkey meals to the children and families of the Head Start Preschool Program. The MOB is thankful to its members and Food Maxx for providing Thanksgiving meals to underprivileged families in our wonderful community of Brentwood,” said Moore.
She further explained that giving back to the community has been the best feeling this holiday season and considers it a responsibility.
“Giving back means we take the responsibility of reaching out to fellow human beings and letting them know we are here, we think of them and we give to them. For the Mothers of Brentwood it is rewarding to be able to provide all of the food to underprivileged families,” said Moore.
In the spring, the Mothers of Brentwood will hold an annual fundraiser. All of the money they raise goes to a Backpack Drive for the children who are a part of the Brentwood Unified School District and our Turkey Drive. Vince Messina, the manager of Food Maxx helps the group attain prices for all of the food we purchase for the families.
