If you are familiar with the Hire A Housewife story, you know how close to my heart Single Mom's Morning Out is.The event represents the anniversary of a turning point in my life. (I'll include the video WCIC created about that at the bottom of this post.)
Single Mom's Morning Out is a chance for local churches to love on single moms in the area while they get pamperred, relax, and have a good time in a positive atmosphere.
I attend the event at Redeemer Lutheran every year and can't help but tear up as they send us through a tunnel of other women who are cheering for us, letting us know we are supported and appreciated and loved.
Every year, single moms of all ages come and drop off small children at the provided childcare area, and are given the options to receive car care, hair cuts, massages, prayer, and breakfast among other things. Hire A Housewife donates gift certificates to help bless a few moms as well.
One of the other ways single moms are blessed by SMMO is their Blessings Store. Donated items in good condition are sorted and displayed for participants to choose from, for free, during the event. One SMMO site focuses on clothes, shoes, and accessories, while the other will also take small household items.
Hire A Housewife will be picking up donations for Single Mom's Morning Out AGAIN this year on March 18-March 31.
What does this mean for you? It means you can de-clutter your home, have someone else haul it away, and donate to a great cause!

Glen Oak Christian Church is one of the sites of SMMO again this year. They have said they are willing to provide tax-deducible receipts for items picked up.
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org letting me know where you would like us to pick up donated items and also give me a general idea of how much you will have.
I will make arrangements and let you know when I will be in your area for pick up! If we have more donations this year, I may enlist some others to help!
Here is the video, as promised:
