MEALS FOR MOMS COOKS NEEDED ASAP!

We have had multiple requests for Meals for Moms this month, but are having a hard time finding cooks to make them.  Can you help?  It can be anything from a bag of groceries, to a gift certificate, to simply making some extra of your own dinner.  If you can help, please email Talia Parrotti at tparrotti@hotmail.com.  Thanks!

CAN YOU HELP WITH JIVE?

JIVE! is the Birth Circle's family friendly New Year's Eve party where the ball drops at 7:00 pm.  It is a great event with kids activities, dancing, food, and drinks.  However, it is a big event that requires lots of volunteers!  Would you consider donating your time and talents to this worthy fundraiser?  There are jobs that begin now and end by Thanksgiving.  There are others that start closer to the event.  Time commitments vary.  Please consider!  If you are interested in helping, please contact Emily at emily.schmaltz@gmail.com as soon as possible.  Thank you!
