Moms from one local organization were up bright and early this weekend, pulling out gently used items that would offer some help for the next mom.
Members of the Alpena County Horsemen’s Club sold these items at a mom to mom sale, offering everything from children’s clothing to women’s jewelry.
President of the club, Terra Koss, says the event will make shopping easier for mothers, but the charitable aspect is a result of the organization’s dedication to the community.
“So all proceeds from today’s show from admission and table rentals is all going towards feeding kids ministry. So we’ve all decided that that’s where we wanted to focus our attention this year as a club, and that’s what our proceeds are going to.”
Koss says members of the club didn’t just select Feeding Kids Ministry by chance, raising funds for this organization will have a direct impact on families here in northeast Michigan.
“From my understanding, there are a lot of children in this area that are less fortunate, that aren’t always given the choice to have a meal every day, and Feeding Kids Ministry does just that. They provide that meal for those children discretely through the school system, and give them like a bag lunch that gets them through the day or gets them through the weekend until the next day at school.”
