Dade City, Florida — Most moms receive cards, flowers, and gifts this weekend, but some don’t expect anything.
Mother’s Day may seem empty to women living in local shelters, but one mover is trying to change that with special deliveries.
“They fill the boxes and we deliver them,” said Eugenia Parow, who has two men and a truck.
This week, the moving company expects to pick up over 8,000 donated items. They call the mission a mover for moms.
Dade City’s treasured friend was one of dozens of businesses, organizations and schools collecting gifts.
“We need to show that people are supporting them. Things can change and for the better, depending on what happened and the circumstances in which they are placed. It can change, so we need to help each other and snuggle up to each other. The help is there, “said Diane Mate, owner of a treasured friend.
Most of the donations are personal care products. On Friday, they will be delivered to dozens of mothers seeking refuge from domestic violence, who now live in Pasco County at sunrise and in the spring of Tampa Bay.
“Often, when families enter the shelter, they bring only clothes on their backs,” said Sunrise CEO Kelly Singh. “This initiative really reveals the support that the Domestic Violence Center needs.”
Shin said that for most mothers, these donations would be the only gifts they would receive.
“And I don’t know how many tears I’ve seen, but happy tears, they’re perfect to see. Lots of smiles can give children some of these gifts to their mothers. It’s giving me the opportunity to be powerful and really humble, “Shin said.
