MotherLove Giving Tree

13 Nov

YWCA MotherLove Director Tangie Bowman and other YWCA staff started putting up the Giving Tree today in the YWCA lobby. The MotherLove Giving Tree is made of stars, each bearing wishes from a local teen mother. The public is invited to come to the YWCA starting Monday to pick out a star to help make someone’s holiday brighter by providing gifts for them and their children. The purpose of the Giving Tree is to assist with the holiday expenses of teen mothers in the YWCA MotherLove program. For more information, call Tangela Ballard Bowman at 254-7206 x 116.

The YWCA MotherLove program is a mentoring program for pregnant and parenting teens. Participating teens are paired with a trained adult mentor who provides support, guidance, friendship and teaches parenting skills.
