Bring smiles to those in need this Christmas season.
HELP Suffolk in Bellport helps house families who have reached hard times and they help them get back on their feet. As a parent, when you reach the point of looking for help and then it is the Holiday season it brings on more stress. HELP Suffolk relies on donations from the community.
We would like to help the parents who would love to buy their child a gift but, do not have the extra means to do so. As a parent the most heartbreaking thing during the holidays would be not to be able to provide your child with a present. The joy of watching your child opening a present with excitement is something we all look forward to. But, imagine you really could not buy a gift for your child. Let’s give back during the most wonderful time of the year.
Momee Friends of Long Island has a goal in mind! We want to be able to donate at least 1 gift to each child at their facility. With your donations , I know we can reach our goal.
This is a great way to keep those busy little toddlers, well busy! Let’s face it we spend so much money on toys for these little ones and they would rather play with the light switch, or the electrical outlet or even just sit in front of the fridge and put magnets all over it. Here is a board that you can combine all of their favorite “toys” onto one board.
Hence, the Toddler Busy Board!
On Thursday July 30th we held a Christmas in July event at the American Legion Hall in Patchogue with vendors, family fun and of course Mr. and Mrs. Claus were visiting Long Island all the way from the North Pole to visit the children and support Sunrise Day Camp along with Momee Friends of Long Island.
The night of the event was perfect summer weather for a great indoor and outdoor event. We were so happy to provide a fun experience for families to come to and enjoy a night of early Christmas shopping as well as enjoy some early holiday fun.
Bringing your family to the beach for the day has to be planned out. Kids need a lot of stuff and there are some great products out there that can make the beach day so much easier. A local Momee friend asked me to come up with this list and I thought it was a great idea for a post.
Momee Friend Nicole, “Now that summer is coming here (and I have 3 kids) I’ve been searching the internet for a “list” of all the cool, must have accessories For example, I have a pop up tent for the kids that I LOVE! I’ve also seen this collapsable wagon that is so sturdy kids can sit in! I was just wondering if you did a blog like this or would mind accepting the challenge of such a difficult task! LOL! With 3 kids, the beach can take as much planning as a mini vacation!”
Here is a list I came up with:
