Our chapter participates in the community service initiatives created by Mocha Moms Inc. as well as ideas we have created ourselves to better serve our community on a local level.
National Community Service Initiatives
Mocha Moms Inc. Chapters Nationwide are supporting Shot @ Life, a movement to protect children worldwide by providing life-saving vaccines where they are most needed. Every child deserves a shot at a healthy life, no matter where they live. Yet, every 20 seconds, a child dies of a disease that can be prevented by a vaccine. We will have an informational booth about Shot @ Life at the event so you can learn more about this much needed organization and a portion of our raffle ticket sales will be donated to support the cause. For more information about Shot @ Life, please visit http://shotatlife.org/
Occupy Schools™ is a bold, national initiative launched in Fall 2012 to empower parents to be active, involved and engaged in their children’s schools and to send a clear message that parents are partners in their children’s education. Occupy Schools™ starts where academic success begins – at home – where our mothers and fathers pledge to build strong educational foundations for their families. It will continue into schools and communities across the country, as parents from all walks of life commit to spending more time in their children’s schools, communicating regularly with teachers, sharing ideas and exchanging information with administrators, and holding themselves and others accountable for providing children with the type of high quality education they deserve.
