The YWCA of Asheville’s Annual MotherLove Giving Tree is now on display in the lobby. The Giving Tree is made of stars, each bearing wishes from a local teen mother. The public is invited to come to 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.
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. For more information, call MotherLove Director Tangela Ballard Bowman at 254-7206 x 116. If you would like to make a donation to this successful program, click here.
