Dear Friends of MTF,
We have much to give thanks for as we move into this holiday season! Thanks to the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Artisan Guild members for supporting MTF through their French Market event and for all that volunteered on our behalf. It was a wonderful way to kick-off our holiday shopping!
Thanks to the Dueringer family for their dedication to keeping families warm this winter and being the driving force behind the MTF Teens Coat Giveaway for 9 consecutive years! Thank you to Waukegan Community Bank for being our sponsor!
Over 650 people received coats and winter gear! Thanks to all that donated and all that volunteered!
As the year comes to a close, we are forever grateful to our donors! Without your trust in us and your generous hearts, we could not be the resource that we are for social workers in Lake County working to support the children and families they serve.
The Lake Forest Station Pop-Up Shop returns this holiday season!
The doors will open for shoppers on November 24 and continue through December 30. Mothers Trust Foundation will have Recipe for Good gift bundles including a yummy family recipe from our founder, Barbara Monsor as well as our Giving Tree for shoppers to give gifts that give back!
Shopping hours are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. MTF volunteers will be working on Friday, December 3 and Thursday, December 16. Please stop by and say hello!
