MLK Mom’s Day

Every January 15

The event: MLK Mom’s day is an event meant to provide new and expecting mom’s in need with baby essentials.

What we provide: At our event we provide just about every item that a new or expecting mom could need. We give out diapers, baby clothes, toiletries, stroller, and more!

The event’s reach: At our 2023 event, we provided baby essentials to 19 new and expecting moms.

 Making it happen: Over 20 people dropped off AMAZING baby donations, along with all of the items graciously bought off of our Amazon wishlist. 20 fantastic volunteers organized all the items in record time – huge thanks to Plymouth Congregational Church in Des Moines!

When will it happen again? Starting in 2023, this will becoming a yearly event, taking place on every MLK Day, January 15. If you would like to volunteer your time or resources, or if you would like assistance from this event, follow our facebook @DSMRefugeeSupport for more information about getting involved closer to the event!
