The MOMS Club of Berkley is Judson Center’s 2018 Volunteer of the Year.  This dynamic group of nearly 50 Mothers from the Berkley Community, are extremely determined and dedicated to support children in our care.  No matter what time of year it is, they understand our need and just in the past two years, they have collected nearly 20,000 diapers, by engaging their neighbors, libraries, local retailers,  and the MOMS Club of Royal Oak. Diapers are a much needed item for the children in our care, and these diapers disappear quickly because it is such a necessity for the families we serve. Every day needs and toiletries we may take for granted are always a need here at Judson Center, and as parents, they understand this need is essential.  In addition to their diaper drives, MOMS club, along with their children, also make beautiful hand- made Valentines with heart-felt messages for our adults with disabilities, often who are overlooked. These acts of kindness bring smiles to their faces and brightens the lives of the adults we serve. These mothers are setting wonderful examples to their children by giving back and recognizing those who are in need and those we serve. They continually keep us top of mind when they do mom-to-mom sales, having their proceeds benefit Judson Center. Most recently, they had a photo contest at an event in Berkley, and voters could cast their ballot by donating money for their favorite photo. Proceeds from this contest went to benefit our programs here at Judson Center. Busy with their own daily lives, raising children, working, running around and countless other things, these MOMS are working selflessly to support the children and families who are in need right here at Judson Center.
