MotherLove Giving Tree

8 Nov

motherloveThe YWCA of Asheville’s Annual MotherLove Giving Tree will be on display in the lobby of the YWCA at 185 S. French Broad Avenue starting on November 11. The Giving Tree is made of stars, each bearing wishes from a local teen mother. The public is invited to stopy by the YWCA and pick out a star to help make someone’s holiday brighter by providing gifts for 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. If you would like to make a financial contribution to this program, click here.
