- Gather and provide household goods, school clothes and blankets for mothers and children who have been displaced.
- Support mothers and children by providing hygiene kits, Welcome Baby kits, blankets for newborns and young children, and lap blankets for the elderly.
- Provide books for young children through the Books for Beginners program.
- Deliver quilts and blankets to hospitals for babies and children at risk.
American Mothers extends service to mothers and children throughout the world. A member of the Utah Mothers Association Board, Nadine Milham, is actively involved in working with children and orphanages in Africa. Read her report and enjoy the pictures from her time in Kenya in February 2017.
The National organization is reaching out to support mothers and children in the United States and around the world.
The Golden Rule Movement
The Golden Rule Movement encourages moms to do what they do best…teach kindness to others. The Golden Rule Movement creates a more positive and empathetic culture in America by empowering, educating, and inspiring women to lead by example and model kindness and compassion through volunteerism and acts of service in their local communities. American Mothers is helping encourage this Movement by providing charitable and communications support for programs which benefit mothers and children through the Golden Rule Grant. Join the Movement. Show us what YOU are doing in our communities to make this world a better place. Help make the #MomNation proud.
